  1. Thanks Ryan Where is the log, its not in the documentation...??
  2. try ScribeDocSaveContainer ("New FileName.pdf" ; "true"; "file" ) ??
  3. Just started to work with a new client, they are running the latest v of plugin on Server 18, and every now and then it turns itself off. Is there any known cases under which this might be the case?? John r

  5. Thanks Noel To stop this happening again either do an explicit test for a null input path, or add a catch (e) at the then of your code Try{ //code } finally { //code } catch (e) { //return a logical error message] }
  6. post the code Noel..... it is to do with the way Groovy 'guesses' or overloads methods based on what it thinks you are working with So for example if you pass 2 in a function it will guess this is an integer number but if you pass 2.5 it will assume it is the decimal type -both of which are different, and if you pass "2" it will assume this is a string Somewhere a null value is being used and the code is not trapping for this as an error, neither does Groovy know what to do with that as it could do multiple things. This is due to a change of Java I think.
  7. Are you just using the version within the sample file???
  8. OK answering own question make the shell script executable then go to the System Setting and grant explicit access to two things to give the script access to write over to external hard drive, bash and fmserver_helperd
  9. Have copied a shell script which works in other settings onto a new machine Changes paths - it zips a backup folder and does a ditto command to copy as a zip file to an external drive I worked out that I needed to change the sudoers file to allow no password access to the script. Running the shell script in terminal was requiring a password, now it doesn't Added the fmserver user to that too. If I run the sh script from the admin console as fmserver it fails straight away, if I run it as the local user with its password it appears to run but in fact times out with a
  10. What you get back is JSON version of the information you asked the function for.. so instead of SMGetVariable calls you would use JSONGetElement instead.. The benefit was to show how this was possible - not to make you change how you do things, it's up to you if change your implementation, but was to show how to export the data out as a JSON block
  11. Those error codes are FileMaker error codes afaik therefore 102 == field missing Groovy errors will refer to things like class issues or things like inability to do an action on a null object..
