With the Anaplan® (RPA) connector, you can use commands to set security settings in Anaplan via robotic process automation (RPA). For example, use this connector to change a data source's security setting from No (Keep Private) to Everybody or Admins Only as part of a chain that imports data sources to Anaplan.
Note: To use a chain to perform standard functions in Anaplan, such as to manage files, actions, and processes, use the Anaplan (Standard) connector instead.
To secure its connection, the connector uses the username and password of a designated integration user or service account in Anaplan.
Note: To avoid tying the connector to individual users, we recommend its own designated service account in Anaplan.
