  1. How can I extract content from sub summary layout objects using? https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/index.html#page/FMP_Help/getlayoutobjectattribute.html I'm able to grab the content from the first subsummary, not the remaining however. The following: set field( output; GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'header', 'content' ) & GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'row', 'content' ) & GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'footer', 'content' ) ) works fine, the bad thing is that only row 1 finds its way to the output-field.
  2. RESTfm Installation

    There is no REST in FM15S for that platform to my knowledge. You will need to run FM16S win/mac or FM15S linux to achieve REST
  3. This morning my FM16S looks like this: HTTP Status 410 - Session expired FileMaker Server has encountered an error: The requested resource is no longer available, and no forwarding address is known. If the Server Launch Page is not available, visit the FileMaker Website for more assistance. FileMaker Server No more admin console. What happened? Where do I start searching for a solution?
  4. I do recommend to use FireFox </> RESTED-addon to make your queries the first couple of times so that you know which pieces of data you are to work with. Further I would not use jQuery, rather use Angular, vue, or react as the latter 3 are for HTML5, jQuery I have not used since XHTML/HTML4
  5. Parsing GIF in JSON from UPS API

    $ cat /tmp/test.txt | json { "ShipmentResponse": { "Response": { "ResponseStatus": { "Code": "1", "Description": "Success" }, "TransactionReference": "" }, "ShipmentResults": { "ShipmentCharges": { "TransportationCharges": { "CurrencyCode": "USD", "MonetaryValue": "112.19" }, "ServiceOptionsCharges": { "CurrencyCode": "USD", "MonetaryValue": "0.00" }, "TotalCharges": { "CurrencyCode": "USD", "MonetaryValue": "112.19" } }, "NegotiatedRateCharges": { "TotalCharge": { "CurrencyCode": "USD", "MonetaryValue": "111.07" } }, "BillingWeight": { "UnitOfMeasurement": { "Code": "LBS", "Description": "Pounds" }, "Weight": "10.0" }, "ShipmentIdentificationNumber": "1Z22VA000197219429", "PackageResults": { "TrackingNumber": "1Z22VA000197219429", "ServiceOptionsCharges": { "CurrencyCode": "USD", "MonetaryValue": "0.00" }, "ShippingLabel": { "ImageFormat": { "Code": "GIF", "Description": "GIF" }, "GraphicImage": "<<encodedGraphicImage>>", "HTMLImage": "<<encodedHTMLImage>>" } } } } } Reformatted the post above for legibility; actual data in the link in the previous post. I'm not sure if it's possible 1) to put the content of GraphicImage into a variable 2) decode the string and 3) save content of variable to file and then 4) import the exported file to a container field.
  6. IIS 8.5 reverse proxy to FMPS 16

    For me it removes the unexplainable 802 errors. Hiding the source is always good. My nginx has access to WAN and LAN( fm16s.mydomain.lan ) NICs Which reverse proxy do you use? I use nginx My config looks like this: $ exa -lT /usr/local/etc/nginx/ drwxr-xr-x - user 16 Oct 19:57 . .rw-r--r-- 1.1k user 31 May 11:57 ├── fastcgi.conf .rw-r--r-- 1.1k user 31 May 11:57 ├── fastcgi.conf.default .rw-r--r-- 1.0k user 31 May 11:57 ├── fastcgi_params .rw-r--r-- 1.0k user 31 May 11:57 ├── fastcgi_params.default .rw-r--r-- 2.8k user 31 May 11:57 ├── koi-utf .rw-r--r-- 2.2k user 31 May 11:57 ├── koi-win .rw-r--r-- 4.0k user 31 May 11:57 ├── mime.types .rw-r--r-- 4.0k user 31 May 11:57 ├── mime.types.default .rw-r--r-- 2.8k user 11 Jul 20:16 ├── nginx.conf .rw-r--r-- 2.7k user 31 May 11:57 ├── nginx.conf.default .rw-r--r-- 636 user 31 May 11:57 ├── scgi_params .rw-r--r-- 636 user 31 May 11:57 ├── scgi_params.default drwxr-xr-x - user 16 Oct 19:57 ├── servers .rw-r--r-- 272 user 11 Jul 19:49 │ ├── local-reverse-proxy.conf .rw-r--r-- 274 user 31 May 12:32 │ └── reverse-proxy-fm16.conf .rw-r--r-- 664 user 31 May 11:57 ├── uwsgi_params .rw-r--r-- 664 user 31 May 11:57 ├── uwsgi_params.default .rw-r--r-- 3.6k user 31 May 11:57 └── win-utf $ cat /usr/local/etc/nginx/servers/reverse-proxy-fm16.conf server { listen; location / { proxy_pass http://fm16s.mydomain.lan:80; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; } }
  7. PSOS Export Records Error 800

    What is your use of the exported data? Is this a temp thing that you import in the next step? Like populating an invoice from an order, i e Then using unformatted XML may be faster than XSLX.
  8. Anyone able to provide the installer for FileMaker 5.5v2 Server for linux? It's an RPM, in case you have it it's not on an original CD. I have the CD with 5.5 Server, but would really like to have the 5.5v2 or 5.5r2, I do not remember the exact phrasing. I already have 5.5v2 preinstalled, I'm not able to find the installer itself, and I would like to move to a newer environment.
  9. Is it beneficial to increase the amount of available memory? I'm not asking if it's needed at this point in time. How much memory will FileMaker 16 Server benefit from? My options are 1) to run only FileMaker 16 Server on this node alone, or 2) share this node with other VMs. The reason for asking is that earlier versions of FileMaker Server only benefitted from increasing the available RAM to a given number 16GB? or 32?
  10. Dehydrated is a client for signing certificates with an ACME-server( currently only provided by Let's Encrypt ) implemented as a relatively simple bash-script. It uses the openssl utility for everything related to actually handling keys and certificates, so you need to have that installed. Other dependencies are: cURL, sed, grep, mktemp( all found on almost any system, cURL being the only exception ) https://github.com/lukas2511/dehydrated I use dehydrated for nginx
  11. If you read the post thoroughly; I mention all the storage in the box. I'll narrow this down for you: There is 256GB of conventional RAM in the box I have set up, I have assigned 32 GB RAM for the node that runs FileMaker Server so far, my question is it beneficial to increase this amount? FYI: Newer servers have room for up to 6TB RAM: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C600/X10QRH_.cfm
  12. What is not RAM? http://www.zfsbuild.com/2010/04/15/explanation-of-arc-and-l2arc/ all 3 items below is in essence RAM, only the 256GB is conventional RAM as your standard concept of computer memory while ZIL is swap space-"like" hence MLC SSDs and the workspace is also SSDs The machine has 256 GB RAM; example: $ prtconf | grep Mem Memory size: 245745 Megabytes 1.5 TB ZIL 8 TB workspace
  13. My newest SuperMicro servers can hold up to 3TB of RAM, I only filled 1 of them with 512GB so far. I usually configure them with 1.5TB of MLC ( 3x 512GB )and 8 TB( 16x 512GB ) of regular SSDs
  14. How much RAM do you assign for FileMaker? Is it beneficial to have more than 256GB of RAM?
  15. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    If you go the telegram way I may be able to contribute. I have _NO_ desire to use Facebook/whatsapp or skype, however Telegram Messenger is really good.
