Anaplan BizApp


Premium BizApp

The OneCloud Anaplan BizApp provides administrators and users the ability to automate complex workflows and integrations with Anaplan across a hybrid mix of on-premise relational technologies and cloud applications including Tableau, Salesforce, Workday, NetSuite, Namely, box and Google Drive. The OneCloud Anaplan BizApp also allows users to run Anaplan Actions and Processes as part of a workflow. In turn, this enables application owners to greatly enhance their ability to share and streamline data and tasks between Anaplan models and other applications in a controllable, auditable, and scalable environment. For documentation on all available commands, see the Anaplan Command Reference

Run Integrations on your Tenant only

Anaplan users can only interface with the Anaplan API from their "Home Tenant". Here is the relevant link on Anaplan's support site: https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Releases/What-s-New-Anaplan-Integration-API-V2/ba-p/35454 and see the section titled: "Enhanced Security - Run Integrations on your Tenant only".
