How to Configure the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Integration


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

Before You Begin

  • 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)

Configure the GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Integration

  1. Download and extract the three .json files.
    • GACategories.json
    • GAProperties.json
    • GAElements.json
  2. Paste the .json files into the Scheduler Directory located at C:\Program Files\MVPSI\JAMS\Scheduler by default.
  3. From the Scheduler directory, right click JAMSDBA.exe, and select Run as administrator.
  4. Run the following commands as an administrator.

    NOTE: You must press Enter after each command is run and prior to running the next command.







  5. Restart the JAMS Windows Services.

Create a Sequence Job to Use the GoAnywhere Sequence Task

  2. In the Add a New JAMS Job Definition dialog, do the following:
    • 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 in the Execution Method field.Add_a_New_JAMS_Job_Definition.png
  3. In the Sequence Source Editor, do the following:
    • Under the GoAnywhere Category, select the Run Project Task.
    • Drag the Run Project Task onto the Sequence Editor.


  4. Enter the following fields in the Properties pane located on the right 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. In the Add a Parameter dialog, enter information in the following fields:
    • Parameter Name - This must be (case sensitive) GAMFTApi
    • Default Value - Enter in the endpoint for the GoAnywhere environment.
    • Select Ok.


    NOTE: Do NOT use a trailing forward slash after v1 in the endpoint.


  7. Click the Save Button on the Job Parameter dialog that appears.


  8. Ensure an ExecuteAs User and the Agent (if required) are defined on the Properties tab of the Sequence. The Sequence will execute on any JAMS 7.1.389 Agent or higher.
