Manage User Accounts without give Administrator Rights


4 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone

 

I develop a FM-close-solution and I like that a selected user in the company, maybe The Manager or wherever can manage the user accounts, Adding, Deleting or modifing user in the FM-Solution like like me ("Admin"), but without Full-Access rights can do. I want that this user can not modify layouts, see scripts and see all my work.

 

In this moment they need call me when they need do it, but in the future I want give to them the possibility of manage the users without me. Is Possible using FM Manage Security or I need develop something that do it?

 

Thanks.

If your solution is hosted on a FileMaker Server you should look into External Authentication.  It's there specifically for this.  The account management happens completely outside of the solution.

You should look at scripting this feature. Then you can set the script to "Run with full access privileges" which will allow all the account management script steps to run as though the user was full admin.

Does the scripting of security work in a Runtime?  I am not sure if I am doing it wrong or it does not work.
