We are pleased to announce general availability of Anaplan Connect v1.4 (AC 1.4). This new version of Anaplan Connect is based on Anaplan v2.0 Integration APIs, with support for public key certificates.
New and updated features in Anaplan Connect 1.4 include:
Anaplan Connect 1.4 enables customers to use public key certificates obtained from a Certificate Authority (CA). You can purchase certificates from a CA that ends in a supported Root CA, and use these for authentication with Anaplan. Authentication using CA certificates is considered a best practice in the industry, allowing you to leverage the benefits of a public key infrastructure.
Anaplan continues to support Anaplan Basic authentication, using a user ID and password.
The Anaplan Connect 1.4 generates a token used in all subsequent API calls. Anaplan Connect 1.4 internally handles all steps necessary for authentication, including refreshing expired tokens. If you use CA authentication, you need only provide a link to your certificates in the Anaplan Connect 1.4 script batch files.
For more more information, see Administration: Certificates in Anapedia.
If you have to access Anaplan models across multiple tenants and want to run Anaplan Connect 1.4 integrations in these tenants, create different user IDs with different default Tenants and use these user IDs to run your integrations.
Note: Anaplan Connect 1.4 can only be used to run Integrations on your default Anaplan tenant.
Downloadable Anaplan Connect Client and Source Code
Please note that only Anaplan compiled JAR is supported by Anaplan. The source code, on GitHub, is provided for reference to help you create your own custom integrations. The source code and modifications are not supported by Anaplan.
If you experience issues with proxy authentication, please try switching to basic authentication for proxy or use an unauthenticated proxy.
There is a known issue with proxy authentication where Anaplan Connect 1.4 throws an error if domain name and workstation parameters are not specified. If you don’t have a domain or workstation configured, provide a random string in the operators.
For example: -viauser ‘aaa\bbb\user:password
The -workspaces and -models operators are deprecated and will be removed in the next release of Anaplan Connect.
