These desktop tools are no longer supported.


Those external integration tools rely on Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 technology, for example for the authentication & initial setup. According to the official blog from Microsoft the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application was retired on June 15, 2022. 


As a result, the listed external tools are no longer supported for SAP Jam as of January 1st, 2023
