Security credentials, such as critical passwords, API secret keys and other methods of authentication are the gatekeepers to vast troves of data.

These are the pieces of information you want to be most careful with. You don't want to spread them all throughout your FileMaker solution making the "attack surface" an easy steal for anyone.

In this video you'll learn about how the Full Access settings apply to both custom functions and how this relates to scripts which reference those custom functions.

You'll get a quick lesson in how to handle the DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) coding method of handling web services calls which need access to critical security credentials. If you're distributing a FileMaker file to any physical device or computer then the lessons in this video are super important!
