The Anaplan Connect API client provides a command-line interface that enables the Anaplan administrator to automate Anaplan imports, exports, and other actions. 

With Anaplan Connect you can automate Anaplan data imports, exports, and other actions.

An example is a batch file, RunMyImport.bat that loads a text file, Europe.txt, onto the Anaplan server. You can also automatically run data actions whenever you need. You might set an import job to run at 5.00 a.m. each Monday morning.

To run Anaplan Connect on a Windows computer, use a batch file (.bat). With UNIX, Linux, or MacOS, use a shell script (.sh). To get started:

Do not install Anaplan Connect in a folder that has parentheses. For example: Folder-name(2022).
