Configuring Anaplan Accounts

On this Page

Overview

This account is used by Snaps in the Anaplan Snap Pack.

Creating an Account

You can create an account from Designer or Manager. In Designer, when working on pipelines, every Snap that needs an account prompts you to create a new account or use an existing account. The accounts can be created in or used from:

  • Your private project folder: This folder contains the pipelines that will use the account.
  • Your Project Space’s shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users that belong to the Project Space.
  • The global shared folder: This folder is accessible to all the users within an organization in the SnapLogic instance.

Account Configuration

In Manager, you can navigate to the required folder and create an account in it (see Accounts). To create an Anaplan account: 

  1. Click Create, then select Anaplan > Anaplan Account.
  2. Enter an account label.
  3. For basic authentication, enter the UsernamePassword, and Anaplan hostname
  4. (Optional) Supply additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab.
  5. Click Apply

Troubleshooting

If a validation error occurs after you enter the certificate and private key in Accounts, verify the following:

  • Check the certificate format. It must be in plain text and start with -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and end with -----END CERTIFICATE-----.
  • Check the private key format. It must be in plain text and start with -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- and end with -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----.
