Manage User Accounts without give Administrator Rights

Recommended Posts

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.

      greetings all!  A question for the network security gurus: I have Supercontainer running in standalone mode.  My router has port forwarding to the machine (Mac-mini).  My credit card vendor requires security IP address scans and I am failing due to the port forwarding on the router.  what is best practice?  I am using a router flashed with Tomato Shibby.

      Hi All. 
      I'm trying to understand how this works in my environment.  We have Filemaker 13 Server, with FM Pro and FM Pro Adv clients.  We are in a Windows Server 2012 Domain.  
      So if I get an Ipad and connect it to the network, then download and install FM go, how does it connect to the FM server?  will there be a problem with the Domain? The Ipad doesn't join the domain. Since it isn't joined, it also wouldn't be able to access the fileserver to view PDFs on the fileserver.  is this correct?
      Extra question non-FM.  What concern do you have with the Ipad being hacked?  The Ipad would be on the network (even if it didn't get fileserver access).  It could cause a security issue.  
      thanks, not sure if I'm correct on these things.  so let me know if I'm wrong.
      Scott

      I currently have a Filemaker 15 solution running on Filemaker Server 15 Advanced. We are currently accessing the solution on Webdirect via VPN connection. I would like to open ports 80/443 so that users could access the solution without connecting to VPN. However, my IT department has flagged security concerns. My question is how real the security concerns are. I know that Filemaker Server 15 Advanced should be encrypting the data. Would that make a non-VPN connection secure? Thanks for any advice.
