Note:

The upgraded Anaplan Snap Pack will only support v2.0 APIs with basic and certificate authority (external certificate) authentication and will not support the Anaplan-generated certificate option as this is only supported in v1.3 API that expires soon. We are proactively reaching out to SnapLogic customers so you can plan ahead and either switch to basic authentication or have the external certificate ready to be used when we release the upgraded Anaplan Snap Pack as part of November 2018 (4.15) release.

Hi @dmiller, Diane,

it seems the EDI SnapPack is not (yet) available in the Partner environment. We have a potential customer who is looking to replace some existing B2B integrations, and it would be very useful to have access to the EDI SnapPack for demo purposes.Can you advise how we can get the SnapPack activated?

Kind Regards,

Lucas

Hi Lucas,

I emailed the owner of the org to see if it was just an oversight. If I don’t hear back from him in a couple hours, I’ll see if there’s another way I can get you access.

Diane

In a change to the previously notified schedule, all Snaplexes not already updated to the new version (4.15) will now be automatically updated on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 9:00 PM PT (Sunday, December 16th at 5:00 AM GMT). This update was previously scheduled to happen on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 9:00 PM PT, so please be aware it’s now happening the following week as part of our new 5-week cycle. We encourage our customers to take the opportunity to test and migrate to the new version before this date. No action will be required by you if you have already applied the update to your Snaplexes. We will remind you again as the update gets closer.

Please contact us directly if you have any questions at support@snaplogic.com.

Thank you!

@RojoLucas, It looks like the Snaplex in your project space’s /shared directory has not been updated to the latest version, so you won’t see the new Snaps until it is.

Hi Lucas,

Please send an email to pavan@snaplogic.com so we can discuss more on EDI needs. I can also walk you through how the architecture works and also the solution that is tightly integrated with EDI gateway (orderful).

This is a reminder that all Snaplexes will be automatically updated to the latest version (4.15) on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 9:00 PM PT (Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 5:00 AM GMT). No action is required if you have already updated your Snaplexes to the latest version.

Please contact us directly if you have any questions at support@snaplogic.com.

Thank you!

Diane,

With regards to OpenAPI, is migrating to 3.0 on the roadmap and if so, can you provide a date? We have already begun to use this feature.

Thank you!

I’ve forwarded your question to Product Management as they are the keepers of the roadmap.

Hi Fernando - We would love to chat more with you offline on your API Management use-case as we do have an end-to-end offering there.
