    Loading of Metadata in PCMCS using REST API - Can this be done ?
    Need to automate integration process by loading metadata to PCMCS using REST API. Has anyone done it ?

    We are looking into automating our integration process to load metadata to PCMCS by making a web service call using REST API. Can this be done ? Has anyone tried it ? Can you please share any information that you may have that would help us ?

      Have you looked through the online documentation in the PCMCS Help Center?

      REST API for Enterprise Performance Management Cloud is at the bottom of the list. See Chapter 13 - update file based application topic.

       Updating dimensions in PCMCS can be achieved using the REST API. Based on how you want to automate the integration process -  FDMEE, Bat scripts, Groovy etc this can be accomplished using the endpoints available here:

      Has anyone successfully implemented the automation of the integration process of loading metadata to PCMCS using REST API ?  We are looking into using MuleSoft that will make the web service calls to PCMCS using REST API.

      To directly answer your question:  Yes.  I have many times loaded metadata to PCMCS via the RESTAPI.  I have done it via many different orchestrators and scripting technologies.

      Others have already provided the links to several key pieces of documentation on how to make that happen.  So I am not sure on where the gap still remains in the knowledge processes.  Please feel free to start another topic thread for other questions/concerns that you may have.

      Thank you,
