MirrorSyncing Container Fields

3 posts in this topic

I am failing to sync container fields with MirrorSync

 

FileMaker Server 12.6

Mac Ox 10.9.1

Mirror Sync2_0082

 

There is no error message when MirrorSync2 finishing the sync process with an iPad. "Sync Complete"

 

Using the FileMaker Tasks sample, images entered on iPad do not show on networked file after syncing, same when images entered in the networked file do not who on the iPad.

 

Container fields show: <Missing: photo001.jpg size450.300>

FileName shows: remote: File Name

 

I have tried several configurations of the container field settings.

 

I tried (as per documentation) save a "self contained copy": even in this file are no images but <Missing: photo001.jpg size450.300>

 

Does anybody has an idea what would work?

 

Thanks

Detlef

Problem solved:

 

The problem was in the external data sources. Open that open (File -> Manage -> External Data Sources). Verify that the IP address and the filename point to the file on the server where the container data lives.
 
The source of the problem was changing the FMP file name.
 
Syncing containers works fine now.

Glad to hear it - that was going to be my first suggestion to check.

    • Is there a flag or indicator that the sync completed successfully from a client?
      By echocron
      I'm sure this is covered somewhere but my search didn't turn anything up. Is there a flag in MirrorSync that I can use to trigger a script if there is a successful sync? I believe I saw this somewhere but can't locate it. In particular I'm looking to trigger a script on FM Go. Thanks!
    • FileMaker iOS App SDK and MirrorSync
      By 360Works
      In case you haven't heard, FileMaker Inc. has released a new tool which allows you to create a native iOS application from a FileMaker solution. To learn more about the FileMaker iOS App SDK, read this FileMaker help article.
      We're pleased to announce that we have tested MirrorSync with FileMaker iOS App SDK and it is fully compatible!
      MirrorSync is already the easiest way to add sync to your FileMaker solution, and the process of integrating MirrorSync is no different with the FileMaker iOS App SDK. 
      We are really excited about this new tool from FileMaker, which now allows you to: 
       
      build a custom native iOS application for your client or company to use with iPhone or iPad distribute the application to users without the need to first download and install FileMaker Go distribute the application directly to user devices with Apple's Mobile Device Management (MDM) and TestFlight, used to distribute beta versions of the application There are a couple of things you will need to create your native iOS application: 
       
      FileMaker Developer subscription, which will give you access to the tool itself Apple Developer subscription, which allows you to set application identification and provisioning profile used to actually deploy the application onto an iOS device A Mac with the latest version of Xcode installed: Currently the process of putting the application together can be done only on a Mac Let us know if you'd like our assistance in turning your FileMaker solution into a native iOS application - we would be happy to help! Just send a message to infobox@360works.com

    • MirrorSync set up after editing application

      Does anyone have a link to a short reference on updating MirrorSync settings after making changes to the Filemaker solution (other than the original MirrorSync documentation)?
    • Storing and Opening PDF in Container Field
      By andersonk06
      I am starting to create a new solution to catalog all of our companies Safety Data Sheets and would like to make the PDFs accessible through FMP14. At the moment I have created a container field that is Interactive and has temporary storage. If I choose "Insert PDF" FMP thinks about it for a moment then opens the pdf I have selected, if I close the pdf I can see that something is in the container but there is no content show. If I move to a record where this has been done the PDF automatically opens, albeit slowly, but I am unable to view the PDF contents without exporting it. If I insert the pdf as a file I see a file icon but am not able to read the file in any way except by exporting it. 
      From reading about PDFs and container fields, it sounds like I should at least be able to see a thumbnail of the pdf but I am not able to read any of the PDFs content. Has anyone else been having that problem? A sample file is attached. 
      Ideally the pdf would be viewable in the record or by clicking a single button and then could be saved to the user's computer for printing purposes.
