We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Anaplan Connect 1.4.2 (AC 1.4.2). This is an upgraded version of Anaplan Connect 1.4.1 (AC 1.4.1) which was made generally available in March of 2019. Anaplan Connect 1.4.2 is available for download here.
Important note: Downloading and installing AC 1.4.2 does not overwrite your existing Anaplan Connect integrations. You may install AC 1.4.2 into a different directory.
We strongly encourage customers using older Anaplan Connect 1.3.x.x versions to upgrade to Anaplan Connect 1.4.2. Anaplan Connect versions 1.4.x support Certificate Authority (CA) certificates in place of Anaplan Certificates. CA Certificates follow industry standards and are more secure as they include a Public key and Private key pair for authentication.
Additional Anaplan certificates were provided by Anaplan in Q4 of 2018. These certificates were issued in order to allow customers more time to procure CA Certificates and transition to Anaplan Connect 1.4.x. The updated Anaplan Certificates will expire by the end of 2019, and Anaplan has no plans to provide additional certificates. Customers must either transition to CA Certificates, or switch to Basic Authentication if they choose to continue with older Anaplan Connect 1.3.x.x installations.
We strongly recommend transitioning to Anaplan Connect 1.4.2 or Anaplan Connect 1.4.1 as soon as possible to avoid integrations issues towards the end of this year. Refer to these blog posts for more information:
