With the SAP Jam Collaboration 1605 release, there are some more great updates to the API to enable developers to get access to more of SAP Jam.

General details of all the SAP Jam Collaboration updates, available in the release, can be found here but we will only cover what is new for developers.

OData API updates

There is a new endpoint available and updates to some of the existing endpoints as well:

*NEW* Away Alert support - great for finding our whether someone is out of the office!

  • [GET] /Members('{id}')/AwayAlerts - get the list of a specific member’s current/future away alerts

(Note the date is represented in Unix epoch time in JSON responses).

  • isAway: new property on the Members entity to designate that they are currently away

*NEW* Properties on the Company entity

  • FeedShareEnabled – indicates that the “Feed Sharing” feature is enabled for the company
  • CustomHomePageEnabled – indicates if the current user has a custom home page enabled
  • ShowProfileOrgChart – indicates if the org chart should be shown

In addition to the API updates, our development team have been working on new UI5 widgets to replace the existing widgets. We’ll be sharing more information on this in the run up to TechEd where we have a CodeJam mini-edition session focused on developing collaborative business apps with SAP Web IDE and SAP Jam.

You can explore the new API updates through the interactive API documentation available here. All of the images in this post are captured from the interactive API documentation connected to my SAP Jam developer edition account - if you don't have your own account yet, you can find out how to sign up here

These are some of the highlights for developers available in the SAP Jam Collaboration, release 1605.  To learn more about other enhancements, please refer to the release notes.
