You can download the Extended APIs plugin JAR file on the Extended APIs Plugin page on Worx. After you add this plugin, you need to restart Jive in order for the feature to become available.

To install the Extended API plugin:

  1. In the Admin Console, go to System > Plugins > Add Plugin.
  2. Under Install a new plugin, click Browse to select and open the plugin JAR file you downloaded.
  3. Click Upload to add the plugin to the community.
  4. Restart the application as root: /etc/init.d/jive-application restart. For a cluster installation, restart each node.
  5. Once the application has restarted, go to System > Plugins > Installed Plugins and check the list for the Extended APIs plugin. This is also where you can remove the plugin.
