With OneCloud Integration Studio (OIS) it is easy for Anaplan users to launch their own OneCloud integrations directly from an Anaplan Dashboard. In this article we will show you how.
First, create an OIS Chain. The example below illustrates how to export data from an Anaplan Module based upon a user defined point-of-view using OneCloud Runtime Inputs.

To enable parameters to be directly passed to the OneCloud Chain, Runtime Inputs accepts the values and uses those as variables inside the Chain:

Next, publish the Chain and navigate to the Chain execution interface.

From within the Chain execution view, click on the ActionLink button, fill in the parameters (optional) and copy the URL.

Inside Anaplan, create a Module dimensionalized only with Line Items and format one of the Line Items as Text → Link.

Edit the formula of the Line Item using the MAKELINK function. If your OneCloud Chain uses Runtime Inputs, be sure to add this to the URL:

Publish the selected Line Item to an Anaplan Dashboard.

Use the Dashboard to securely facilitate self-service integration for authorized end-users. If single-sign-on is enabled, then the step to login is not required.

We hope this solution-highlight helps your Anaplan users to get access to their data in a timely, accurate, secure manner.
