  1. Goal - use MirrorSync with database hosted on FileMaker Cloud, using MirrorSync hosted on a Windows Server. Error - filemaker mirrorsync jdbc error cloud requires version 16.0 or later MirrorSync version 3.17 FileMaker Cloud 1.16.1.18 Steps to reproduce 1. run mirrorsync 2. create filemaker client to server config 3. configure mirrorsync to use hosted version 4. configure publishing engine / database server to use cloud 5. put any database user, pass or name - it doesn't matter what you put - real or not real 6. you will error - filemaker mirrorsync jdbc error cloud requires version 16.0 or later
  2. Is there a way to customize the language in the dialog box that appears after a successful sync when there's a new database version available? "There is a new database version available named 'x.xx'. Would you like to replace your current offline file with this version?" Thanks, Jason
  3. I've set up 2 previous clients with MirrorSync v3.x without problem but just trying to setup another client using v4.0. Setting a new config for Server to Pro/Go at step 2 of the hub config (Copy scripts) it does not recognise that the scripts have been pasted in when in fact they have - it refers to 3 scripts but copies 4 - obviously an update is needed. The version of MirrorSync from the java app is "4.0 build 9400" even thought the jnlp file was named MirrorSync3ConfigClient. I'm using FMS 16, FMPA 16 Error message is "Validation Failed: You will not be able to successfully sync. There is no script called 'MirrorSync'. That must exist before proceeding......". I've tried from scratch multiple times. Anyone else had this problem with v4.0?
  4. Hello, I'm planning to use MirrorSync to sync my FM Webdirect database to a SQL Server, one-way sync. Basically, this is for reporting purposes. But in all of the 360 Works help docs, I don't see even one guide/screenshot/anything on how to setup the SQL Server. What information is required, how does MirrorSync authenticate to SQL Server, what specific permissions does it need, etc... nothing at all. Has anyone done this who can provide some information? I work for a large organization and need to know how to setup this SQL Server before jumping into configuration. (Primarily authentication, we prefer windows authentication so will MirrorSync connect to SQL Server as the windows service account that is running the FM Server? Or does it need a SQL account? And what permissions are required?) Thank you! And 360 Works, please add this to your help docs!! Andrew
  5. How to Sync with FileMaker Cloud Using 360Works MirrorSync Today we want to let you know that it is completely possible to sync a FileMaker solution hosted on FileMaker Cloud! MirrorSync has been able to handle this task since the release of 3.1. The current version is 4.0 and it remains compatible with FileMaker Cloud. FileMaker Cloud leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host your FileMaker solutions in the cloud. Many people are moving to the cloud to cut back on server maintenance time and money. Here at 360Works, we are big fans of AWS - we actually moved all of our hosting to AWS and couldn't be happier. (Jesse Barnum, president of 360Works, presented on the topic of deploying FileMaker Server with AWS at last year?s FileMaker Developers conference.) Getting started with MirrorSync for FileMaker Cloud is extremely simple: There's nothing to install and only a couple of steps to get up and running! Step 1: Host MirrorSync Elsewhere You will need to run MirrorSync on a separate computer from your FileMaker Server, because FileMaker Cloud does not allow the installation of 3rd party software other than plug-ins (MirrorSync is not a plug-in). Once you've launched your FileMaker Cloud instance, 360Works can host MirrorSync on a managed AWS server for just $29 a month. There are several other approved hosting providers willing to host MirrorSync as well (see documentation). Alternatively, knowledgeable Linux administrators can host on their own Linux instance with Amazon Web Services. Step 2: Enable xDBC Because there is no XML Web Publishing Engine with FileMaker Cloud, you must enable incoming access (to port 2399) on your FileMaker Cloud instance in order for MirrorSync to communicate with it using xDBC. You can do this in the AWS console, follow along with this short video: A Few Final Notes *You will want to reference our MirrorSync and FileMaker Cloud documentation for complete technical guidelines. *Users running regular FileMaker Server on a Mac or Windows computer can install MirrorSync 4 on their own server. *We've designed MirrorSync to be something that even a novice user can integrate, but we're standing by when you need more advanced help. If you just want your sync integration to be completed as quickly as possible, we're available to do the work for you directly at our hourly consulting rates.

  6. Hi guys, I am trying to set up MirrorSync with a Data Separation Model setup and need a spot of help. I have the DATA file hosted on FMPHost.com, and a local copy of the UI. The documentation states that I must set up MirrorSync in the UI file, then copy that across to the DATA file. However, the setup window only gives me the option to select the DATA file. I'm a bit stuck now, could anyone shed some light on how to proceed? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hello Is it possible to use MirrorSinc with an App built with iOs Development Kit?
  8. Does anyone have a link to a short reference on updating MirrorSync settings after making changes to the Filemaker solution (other than the original MirrorSync documentation)?
  9. Hi, Our Filemaker database is hosted by 360Works using MirrorSync 3. The owner wants to upgrade to MirrorSync 4 asap. Any idea on when it will be available for hosted databases? :-) Doug
  10. We have recently released versions 3.14 - 3.16 of MirrorSync with improvements for recovery mode, high-volume syncs, and rebuilding sync data. Overall, the reliability of MirrorSync has greatly improved, and the speed of SQL and server-to-server syncs have increased significantly! Immediately after the release of 3.14 and 3.15, we were able to identify and fix a few quirks resulting in an even more reliable version with 3.16. In 3.16, we even added a few additional features including the ability to pre-populate databases for server-to-server syncs with non-FileMaker databases, faster initial syncs, and new support for re-importing a new configuration over an existing one, which is very useful in a vertical market solution deployment. This is a free update for current users. For those new to MirrorSync, the server license is free and ships with one free configuration of FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Go syncing with FileMaker Server and one free device allowance. All additional configurations and devices are available for purchase. MirrorSync can sync between any combination of FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, FileMaker Server, SQL database (MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or any database that supports JDBC), Salesforce, and Amazon RedShift. To download the current version, please visit the MirrorSync product page For a complete list of changes, please visit our MirrorSync changelog
  11. Is it possible to sync data in a Filemaker portal to an external MySQL database? For example, an invoice listing multiple products stored in another table (assuming I only want the information in the portal, such as qty, name, price). Or do we have to manually sync all related tables behind the scenes and then re-create the relationships using joins later? Thank you!
  12. In case you haven't heard, FileMaker Inc. has released a new tool which allows you to create a native iOS application from a FileMaker solution. To learn more about the FileMaker iOS App SDK, read this FileMaker help article. We're pleased to announce that we have tested MirrorSync with FileMaker iOS App SDK and it is fully compatible! MirrorSync is already the easiest way to add sync to your FileMaker solution, and the process of integrating MirrorSync is no different with the FileMaker iOS App SDK. We are really excited about this new tool from FileMaker, which now allows you to: build a custom native iOS application for your client or company to use with iPhone or iPad distribute the application to users without the need to first download and install FileMaker Go distribute the application directly to user devices with Apple's Mobile Device Management (MDM) and TestFlight, used to distribute beta versions of the application There are a couple of things you will need to create your native iOS application: FileMaker Developer subscription, which will give you access to the tool itself Apple Developer subscription, which allows you to set application identification and provisioning profile used to actually deploy the application onto an iOS device A Mac with the latest version of Xcode installed: Currently the process of putting the application together can be done only on a Mac Let us know if you'd like our assistance in turning your FileMaker solution into a native iOS application - we would be happy to help! Just send a message to infobox@360works.com
  13. I tried to install MirrorSync 3.17 today on a MacOS with 10.12.3 and FMS 15.0.3.308. The installer is hanging at about 80% progress at "Running package scripts..." Is there an installer log file that I can examine? In addition I noted in the docs the restriction against multiple users sharing the same file on the same device: http://docs.360works.com/index.php/MirrorSync_advanced_topics#Can_I_share_a_device_among_multiple_users.3F I am wondering about the details of this restriction and is it possible for multiple users to share the same db file on the same device if there is no record filtering or record-level access features enabled?
  14. With MirrorSync 3 set to come out at DevCon, what is going to happen to people who have existing MirrorSync 2 licenses? We're about to buy a MirrorSync license. Do we need to wait for 3 to be released first in order to avoid an immediate upgrade two weeks later? Thanks.

  16. Hi all, I have an issue with syncing at the moment. I keep getting and error when trying to perform an initial sync from iPad. This is a brand new error for me and I have absolutely no idea how to fix it. I already put a bug report through to 360Works but though I would try my luck here anyway.
  17. If I wanted to script a mobile device update process, is it possible to directly access the download link and not have to go through the intermediate trigger page?. I would like to grab a copy of the hosted file and insert it into a container. Currently hitting the download link returns the "Download file is ready and should automatically start downloading now." Then later a JS forced download. C
  18. How does Mirrorsync deal with potential record locking (due to record being in use by another user) during sync? Also, how are any interruptions handled during sync, say a network disconnect? Thanks, Andreas

    Large mirrorsync.data File

    Hello, I noticed that on the server in which MirrorSync is installed, one of the mirrorsync.data files was 12GB+ in size. It is in the filepath formula C://Program Files/360WOrks/SyncData3_MirrorSync/FileMaker Server_x.x.x.x_FileName/mirrorsync.data Is there any way to either reduce the size of this file, or stop it getting any bigger? Thank you in advance for you help Lewis
  20. I'm looking for some sort of instruction on setting up a sync between Microsoft SQL Server and a FM Go solution on iPad. I spoke with someone from 360works last summer. What I remember from that conversation was that it was fairly simple. First setup the sync on Filemaker Server, then somehow port it over to SQL Server. But after going through the Filemaker Server setup, it just doesn't seem apparent to me how to follow through with the next steps. Also related to this, I remember tinkering with this last summer and ran into a roadblock. We are running a fairly old version of Microsoft SQL Server and apparently some driver was missing from MirrorSync that would allow it to communicate with my older SQL Server. (we are running MS SqlServer 2000 - 8.00.2039) Does this ring a bell with anyone? Because of other applications running on this server, we cannot update it at this time.
  21. Hi, I'm hoping for some helpful advice before I tear my hair completely out! I've been tasked with finding/creating a solution to provide an offline sync to a Filemaker database hosted on a Windows 7 machine with FM Go on an iPad. I've tried GoZync but didn't find this user-friendly at all, so I want to give MirrorSync a go. I've downloaded and run the installation software but it doesn't appear to install anything, it gets to about 30% of the way through the installation, opens up a zip/jar file and then states the installation is finished. Can MirrorSync be run on a Window 7 platform that's hosting a Filemaker database? Any advice is greatly appreciated along with any other suggestions of solutions to provide offline syncing in a straightforward manner! Thanks in advance. James

  23. Hello there, I installed today mirror sync as a trial on a filemaker server to give it a try. After Installation and reboot of the server (basically it wasn't responding) I logged in on mirror sync and start creating a new configuration, but It gives me an error when I try to access to the database server.
