  1. Not sure, but it's not my intention. I want to use it to authenticate FM and another web service that can authenticate with Auth0.
  2. It's a cloud service like OKTA - not on the LAN level (if that's the question).
  3. Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately I have other reasons why I would prefer to use Auth0.
  4. Couldn't find that video, only Wim's session from 3 years ago. In any case isn't that about Keycloak? seems my issue relates to Auth0 configuration specifics. I think my FMS settings are correct.
  5. Referencing the original post here. I am trying to set up Auto0 to authenticate with FMS 19.2.1 (Windows Server). Got to the point where it the logs on Auth0 show successful login and FMS says 'Authentication Failed'. So I assume it's because the claims aren't set up properly (email probably) - not quite clear how to achieve that with Auth0. Second issue is groups - having tried to figure this out I came across this thread: https://community.auth0.com/t/how-do-you-manage-user-groups/35897/7 I'm wondering if the group feature is not available anymore (or only in beta now). At this point I'll be satisfied with getting single user log in working. I think my FMS config file is okay but probably missing some bit on Auth0. the 'Authentication Failed' web page is in the format of https://myserver/oauth/redirect?code=xxxxxxx&state=xxxxxxxx it asks permission to open FMP and then shows the error on FMP. FMS logs show nothing. Any pointers would be appreciated....
  6. Update: I have confirmed that setting up a direct IP port resolves the issue of not being able to print to shared network printers
  7. So having done some more testing and investigation I'm close to conclude that the reason the printing isn't working is due to permissions issues on shared network drivers. A preliminary test to a generic local TXT printer seemed to work. Next I will attempt to configure a network printer as a local printer (using the IP as the port) and see if it bites.
  8. Great Charles! Seems to work with simple commands (like Dir,Del etc..). Trying to get the print to work too - currently it's stuck on 'transferring url...' and doesn't print. I like the PHP implementation, although it does require the PHP engine to be running. In any case, I think it can be useful for many developers.
  9. Possibly, but the printout needs to be immediate and I would need to schedule it to run every minute (or whatever the fastest occurrence would be) and that could strain the server and the result wouldn't be immediate in most cases.
  10. That is correct. I got the PDF in a container and out to the server. I can't get the server to run a batch file remotely (triggered by the iPad).
  11. Well, the issue isn't creating the PDF, it's printing it. In any case, Save As PDF isn't server compatible.
  12. I had a request to print PDFs from an iPad. In the past I created a bot that based on Sic Fried Rice's (if I'm not mistaken) technique would print a label on a label printer by triggering a script from the iPad. I would like to be able print without setting up a Bot, PHP or using a plugin. I got close but for some reason I'm stuck on the last bit and I'm sure other developers have done this before. So the process I came up with so far is: 1, I found a lightweight utility called SumatraPDF which I copied to the Doc folder on the Windows FM 14 server 2. I populated a global field with the batch file string to print the document (e.g. "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\sumatrapdf" "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\1.pdf" -print-to-default) 3. I created a print script for the iPad that runs a PSOS script that exports the global field to the documents folder and opens it So when running the script from the iPad I can see it creates the correct batch file on the server and I can click on it manually to run - it works Problem is it doesn't print when run from the iPad. Maybe 'open automatically' isn't supported on PSOS? I'm open to other ideas.... Dan Update: seems that it is unrelated to printing - the batch file just doesn't get run.
  13. Josh: I have changed the font to something generic for now, hopefully it's easier to read and doesn't get cut.
