How to Configure the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Integration


JAMS 7.1 and GoAnywhere clients can integrate with GoAnywhere to Execute GoAnyWhere Projects. To configure the Integration follow the below steps.


  • JAMS Scheduler 7.1.389 or Higher
  • JAMS Windows Agent - 7.1.389 or Higher (only if the Sequence must execute on an Agent, otherwise it can be executed on the JAMS Scheduler)


1. Download and extract the 3 .json files within

  • GACategories.json
  • GAProperties.json
  • GAElements.json

2. Paste the .json files to the Scheduler Directory located at C:\Program Files\MVPSI\JAMS\Scheduler by default

3. From the Scheduler directory, right click JAMSDBA.exe, and choose "Run as administrator".

4. Run the following commands as an administrator.

Note: You must hit enter after each command is run and prior to running the next command.








4. Restart the JAMS Windows Services.

Create a Sequence Job to Utilize the GoAnyWhere Sequence Task

1. Select "Create a Job" from the JAMS Client Home Shortcut then select "Create a Sequence"


2. The "Add a New JAMS Job Definition" Dialog box will appear.

  • Select the Folder where you would like the Sequence Job saved in the "Folder" Field.
  • Enter a name for the Sequence in the "Name" Field.
  • Verify the Execution Method is set to "Sequence"


3. The Sequence Source Editor will open.

  • Under the GoAnyWhere Category select the "Run Project" Task
  • Drag the "Run Project" Task out onto the Sequence Editor


4. Enter the following fields in the Properties pane located on the right hand side of the editor.

  • Project - Enter the fully qualified path to the GoAnyWhere Project.
  • User - Select a User from the drop down (that has been previously saved in JAMS) that has Permission to connect and Run the Project in GoAnyWhere.


5. A Parameter must be added to the Sequence to dictate the GoAnywhere Endpoint.

Select the Parameter Tab on the Sequence then the "+" sign. Select "Add a Parameter" from the drop down.


6. The "Add a Parameter" dialog box will appear. Enter information in the following fields:

  • Parameter Name - This must be (case sensitive) GAMFTApi
