Import Metadata API

The new import metadata API endpoint provides an import definition for module and list imports. This enables you to use mappings on your imports without querying the import file itself.


Previously, Audit was only available for use as an API to extract Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) logs.

Now, if you have access to Anaplan Audit, you can track audit events from your Anaplan tenant into technology such as a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) product for alerting and tracking purposes.

Audit provides:

  • Encryption Logs. Available if your organization uses Bring Your Own Key (BYOK).
  • User Activity Audit Logs. Available if your organization has access to Audit.

Anaplan Audit enables you to pull audit event information from the Anaplan public REST APIs. Anaplan Audit is intended as a delivery mechanism for audit logs and is designed for audit information to be pulled frequently so that you can leverage your own technology for filtering, analysis, and storage.

Note: Anaplan Audit is not designed to be a permanent repository of audit events.

The content of each log varies, however Audit provides:

  • Audit logs via an API and the Anaplan Administration app.
  • Up to 30 days of logs.
  • Filtering of logs by time period and application.
  • Information about who carried out an action, when it was done, and what was done.

Learn more in the Tenant Administration Anapedia article.

Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)

Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) has received the following enhancements:

  • On the Encryption Keys page, you can filter the list of encryption keys by their Key Alias or Key ID. To filter the list, enter the first few characters of the Key Alias or Key ID on which you want to filter the list.
  • When you delete an encryption key, the name of the encryption key selected for deletion is shown on the confirmation popup to help prevent accidental deletion of a key.
  • You can view the encryption history for a workspace by selecting that workspace on the BYOK Workspaces page. Audit information includes:
    • Status of the encryption key action. For instance, Assigned, Unassigned, Assignment Failed, Unassignment Failed.
    • Key Name. Name of the encryption key.
    • Date on which the action took place.

DocuSign for Anaplan 1.6

DocuSign for Anaplan 1.6 offers closer platform integration via the header bar. We've also added support for the Percentage data type in DocuSign documents. Under the hood, we've updated our SSL certificates to support the planned renewal of DocuSign certificates in May 2018.
