1. Import and export data
  2. Import Data into Models
  3. Import data from another model
  4. Import list data from another model

You can import list data from another model.

You must have the necessary access permissions to perform a list-data model-to-model import.

The default source for a model-to-model import is List. You can also import from a module or saved view.

When you map your import, you can only match the names or codes of target items to the names of source items. If any changes are made to source item names, you must update the import definition in accordance with the changes.

Note: Once you set up a model-to-model import, the source is available for other users to select where they have the appropriate access rights. This contrasts with file imports, where you can set the source as a private file or a default file for the import.

To import list data from another model:

  1. In General Lists, select the list into which you want to import data.
  2. Select Import.
    The Select Source dialog displays.
  3. Select Connect to Anaplan Model.
    The Select Source dialog adjusts and lists the other models in the current workspace.
  4. Select the model to which you want to connect for the import.
    If you have access to more than one workspace in the customer environment, select the workspace that contains the model you want to connect to from the Workspace list. You can then select the model.
  5. Select the list from which you want to import in the right-hand field.
    1. Optionally, select Split Composite Lists into Separate Columns.
      Data from any composite lists in the import source is split into separate columns by list level. This includes any composite list the model uses as a module dimension.
  6. Select the Select button.
    The Import Mapping dialog displays.
    If you selected Split Composite Lists into Separate Columns the Mapping tab displays a separate column for every list level in the composite list. Data from list items with identical names imports separately when you split composite lists into separate columns.
  7. Select the properties in the Source dropdowns that you want to map to properties in the target list.
  8. Select to you want target items to be uniquely identified by Name or code, Name only, Code only, or Combination of properties.
  9. Select Run Import.
    A progress dialog displays as the import runs.

When the import completes, an Import Completed dialog displays which items imported successfully and any that did not. You can open the Details tab for a detailed report or select Close to exit the dialog. 


We may update our documentation occasionally, but will only do so in a way that does not negatively affect the features and functionality of the Anaplan service.
