Anaplan Advanced V2 Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

Anaplan is a cloud-based business modeling and planning platform for sales, operations and finance. Use Domo's Anaplan Advanced V2 connector to return data you have created as an export in the Anaplan user interface. For more information about the Anaplan API, visit their website. (https://docs.anaplan.apiary.io/)

You connect to your Anaplan account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Anaplan Advanced V2 connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Anaplan account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • An Anaplan private key.

  • A CA-issued X509 certificate.  

For an in-depth guide to obtaining a certificate and exporting your private key, see https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Content-Sandbox/A-Guide-to-CA-Certificates-in-Anaplan-Integrations/ta-p/39305
