Hi  @Arne Rüdiger,

SharePoint connector is quite different with other Confluence plugins which cannot be installed directly from Confluence UPM.

Depend on version of SharePoint you can follow the installation of SP connector as this guide.

Im summary, the software package of SP connector is a zip file contains 2 parts of the plugin. The jar file for Confluence plugin and the wsp file for SharePoint solution package. To install plugin in Confluence, you have to go to UPM and upload the jar file not copy it into WEB-INF/lib





uploading the jar directly worked as described.
