Remote File Upload and Download
By Jason H
I'm trying to find out if its possible to create a web based FileMaker 13 solution (WebDirect) where I can remotely upload files to the db and someone else can remotely download those files.
All the reading that I have been doing with regards to WebDirect doesn't touch on containers at all.
Is this scenario possible and what would be the basics of making it happen (how to initiate an upload or downlaod, contain setup, etc)
Single Sign-On via the Browser
Ok, so we have just completed the set up of our test FM13 server and the application is being accessed via webdirect.
I have tested it on Chrome (as our managed image only runs IE8 at present), and I get a login dialog whuich i have to enter my network credentials into. Currently the application is secured by three different Active Directory groups based on the access level of the user, and the users would really like to know if it's possoble for them to not have to sign in?
The third party provider who set this up believed it was possible, but as WebDirect is new, there doesn't seem to be much info available. I've searched the user guides and they all mention SSO with ODBC, but I am pretty sure this doesn't apply here.
Can anyone tell me if what we need is possible, and if so how?
Possible to have unique users only see certain records?
I'm looking to setup a solution for sales reps via WebDirect to where each sales rep can login but only be able to view records assigned to them.
How difficult would this be to setup?
Right now I have a layout that has a drop down with each sales rep name. Could I make additional layouts and have some sort of identifier for each sales rep and then when they log in with their user, that user is only allowed access to that layout/records?
