  4. Configure the connector

Configure the connector once you've downloaded it. This step allows you to connect via Anaplan APIs.

The connector uses both basic authentication and single sign-on (SSO). To use SSO, you must be designated as an SSO user in your Anaplan model. You set your own configuration.
