  1. Hi Wim, These are exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! -Kent
  2. I'm trying to rethink how I can safely store/access user credentials needed to send mail via SMTP from FileMaker. In solutions I've built prior to the current one I've stored them in a table and used FM's security features to limit access to them. I'm curious if anyone's come up with a better way of dealing with credentials that are required by services called by FileMaker. If so, please let me know. Thanks in advance! -Kent
  3. Hey PCIPal, Thanks for the reply. I fixed the problem and think I figured out where the problem was (although I'm not 100% certain). If you don't mind I'd like to run this by you so I have a better understanding of how plugin/QB sessions are handled. I was beginning the Connector session in a parent script 2 stack calls away from the script that primed the data fields and then posted the request. When I moved the session opener step to a parent script just 1 stack call away from the subscript that executes the post the problem disappeared. Does this behavior make any sense to y
  4. Hi, Does anyone know what error code 4101 means? It just started happening when I try to push an invoice to QuickBooks Desktop using the FM Books Connector plugin v12.0.0.2 (64 bit). The script was pushing invoices fine yesterday. The error messages appear when initiating a new request and also when adding related record requests (for the invoice lines). The plugin step returns the result 0, as does FMPA 18 if I do a Get ( LastError ), so neither FMPA nor the plugin seem to think there's an error. Also, I'm seeing a progress bar I've never seen before (see below). It displays fo
  5. Turned out I didn't need the headers. The result of --cookie-jar was all I needed. But if I'd wanted the headers too all I'd need to do is follow that option with a variable and it would write to that. Example: --dump-header $myVariable.
  6. Never mind. I got it to work with the following cURL options. -L -d 'username=myaccountname&password=mypassword' --cookie-jar $cookies I'm curious though if anyone knows why FMI chose not to support the --include option.
  7. I'm trying to get a token from an authorization server using cURL in Insert From URL. When I make the following request in Terminal curl -i -X POST -d 'username=myaccountname&password=mypassword' https://authserver.com/login I get the token back in the response header. Since FileMaker doesn't support the --include (-i) option I haven't been able to figure out how to get the response header with the token. Anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance! -Kent UPDATE: Okay, I figured out I can get a response header by using the option --d
  8. I'd like to be able to perform a Traceroute during execution of a script running on FileMaker Pro (not FM Server) on a Windows 2012 R2 Server machine. Any ideas on how to do it? Thanks in advance! -Kent
  9. Right, that's what I did initially. But then after I configured the second machine as the Standby server I realized I'd made a mistake in one of the schedules. I corrected it in the Primary's schedule but I wasn't sure how to update it in the Standby since the Admin console in Standby doesn't function any more. I figured there had to be an easy way to update it since it's likely that schedules will be modified over time. I searched through FileMaker's documentation but couldn't find anything about the STANDBY UPDATE command affecting schedules. Thanks again! -Kent
  10. Hi Wim, That's a great help. Thanks! I asked about the XML file because I found a post somewhere on the web that recommended copying the "schedules and groups" file from the Primary to the Standby server, but they didn't say what the path was to the file. Just as well since it sounds like this could be problematic. Thanks again! -Kent
  11. Hi, I posted this 4 days ago on a FileMaker Community Discussion but no one has replied so I'll try here. How does one go about updating the schedules in a standby server so they match the schedules of the primary server? Is it just a matter of running fmsadmin STANDBY UPDATE /thefolderpaththeschedulesresidein? If so, where does the schedules and group file reside (I need info for both Mac & Windows)? Thanks in advance! -Kent
  12. Sorry, I wasn't expecting you to know InDesign. My question was more generic in nature, referring back to how you described data storage versus display. I think I have enough info now to at least know where to look for answers and which questions to ask. Thanks again, Michael, you've been a big help! -Kent
  13. I hadn't thought about it that way, but it makes sense. So, to take this a step further and apply it to PDF creation in InDesign, it would be up to InDesign's text box formatting (or possibly even a plugin's formatting options) to display the exported text in the desired direction flow. In other words, if the text is exported as "DELBMARCS" and I want it to display as RTL, then RTL formatting for the text box would instruct it to display as "SCRAMBLED". Does that sound about right?
  14. I think this gives me enough info to know where to focus my research. Your last comment about data export puzzles me a little though. If FM doesn't preserve the RTL character flow, then how do RTL text users deal with tab or comma separated data if it gets reversed on export? Or am I misunderstanding your statement? Thanks for the help, Michael. -Kent
