  1. New Major Version Release: MirrorSync 5! 360Works, is proud to announce MirrorSync 5, a new major version of the easy-to-use data replication tool that quickly and seamlessly syncs an offline database running on FileMaker Go or FileMaker Pro with a database hosted by FileMaker Server and syncs various configurations of SQL databases. MirrorSync 5 will greatly improve convenience for your end users by making the sync process faster and more secure. We have added features to improve the initial sync making all subsequent syncs more seamless and we have reduced the amount of password requests needed to access the database for syncing. Additionally, there have been over 40 new improvements made to enhance reliability, speed, and stability overall! Powerful New Features Added: Faster Speeds: Run the Initial Sync on the Server With large databases, initial syncs can take a long time when filtering a subset of records for each user. MirrorSync 5 now has a feature to drastically improve this initial sync time, by hosting a temporary copy of the file on FileMaker Server, running the initial sync entirely on the server, and sending the pre-synced file to the user's iPad, laptop, or iPhone. The performance improvement is especially noticeable when syncing with filtered record sets for large databases, and syncing over cellular networks. If you are syncing a custom/personalized set of records from a table with more than 10,000 records, this update is critical for improving the speed of your syncs. During our testing, we found that initial syncs are now 3 times faster. For example, doing an initial sync of 10,000 records into an empty clone on an iPad Mini over WiFI took 9:13 using traditional client-side initial sync, and 3:43 using the new server-side initial sync feature of MirrorSync 5. More Convenient: Encrypts and Remembers User Passwords MirrorSync will now remember user passwords, so that they don't need to be re-entered on each sync after an offline file is opened. It encrypts and saves the initial password on the MirrorSync server, preventing users from repetitively entering their passwords for better security and end user convenience. If the password is changed on the server file, the user will be re-prompted for a new password. If you've been using a shared password for all users to avoid the hassle of password double-entry, you can now switch to the more secure option to use individual accounts, without making extra work for your users. More Reliable: New Sync Auditing Feature to Monitor Sync Progress We have added an advanced notifications feature in MirrorSync 5, which posts CloudWatch metrics and SNS notifications when a sync completes or fails. While this feature is optional and can be turned on or off, it is very beneficial for those who wish to receive updates on sync statistics or receive alarms for sync behaviors (e.g. number of records inserted, sync duration, number of sync warnings). You will need an AWS account to use this feature. Improvements for MirrorSync Hosting Providers Log files are now separated by the MirrorSync application name. This is important for hosting providers to be able to see each customers log files separately. New Support for Syncing with DynamoDB, the Back-end Database of Amazon.com We have added support for syncing with DynamoDB, a database under Amazon Web Services that is simple, serverless, scalable, and provides low-latency data access. DynamoDB is used by Amazon with their retail site (Amazon.com) where it handles 13.9 million requests per second! Give us a call if you'd like to hear more about how we synced a government FileMaker solution with DynamoDB to handle huge web traffic loads. More Convenient with FileMaker Server 17 If you are considering switching to FileMaker Server 17, now is the perfect time. MirrorSync will now automatically enable XML Web Publishing on FileMaker Server 17, so that you don't have to do in the command line or data API. There are over 40 new improvements in MirrorSync 5, giving you more unbelievable new ways to do the unSYNCable! See the complete changelog here. MirrorSync Map: Speed and Reliability We analyzed a month of syncing data to show its speed and reliability. The following map shows MirrorSync users who performed syncs in 45 countries around the world across different cities and countries (does not include installations with statistics gathering disabled). 99.4% of 269,000 Syncs completed with no errors 133,465 FileMaker Server to MySQL Syncs with a median sync time of 5.3 seconds 79,961 FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server Syncs with a median sync time of 12.4 seconds 27,085 FileMaker Server to FileMaker Pro/Go Syncs with a median sync time of 22.9 seconds 19,249 FileMaker Server to DynamoDB Syncs with a median sync time of 20.5 seconds 14,279 FileMaker Server to other SQL Databases with a median sync time of 65.3 seconds Longest sync distance of 1,184 Miles Licensing and Hosting You can download MirrorSync 5 instantly and start syncing with the new improvements. MirrorSync 5 is compatible with MirrorSync 4 offline files - no need to reset sync data or recreate configurations (although some new features, like password saving, will not function until the script is updated). Active maintenance subscribers for MirrorSync or the 360Works Portfolio Bundle will receive the new major version 5 at no additional cost. We are also pleased to announce that we offer hosting services for MirrorSync for the low price of $29 per month. This is included free of charge for customers hosting FileMaker Server with us. Contact us to find out more and get started! For adding new devices onto a MirrorSync license, prices range from $40-$95 per device depending on the quantity of devices ordered.

  2. MirrorSync 5 is now available and with it ships a better user experience for your clients! Today, we want to share 3 ways you can optimize your FileMaker sync experience for your users with the lastest version of MirrorSync. If you haven't heard...MirrorSync allows you to sync FileMaker Go, FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Servers, SQL databases, and virtually any datatbase you can think of! Here are 3 ways you can sync FileMaker and provide a better user experience using MirrorSync 5: 1. Encrypted Password Storage No user wants to repetitively enter their password before a sync! As a convenience to your users, MirrorSync 5 will now store encrypted passwords for your users on the server. Essentially, it stores an encrypted version of the last used password to sync an offline file. In MirrorSync 5, instead of picking between a shared, auto-entered password (less secure) or individual passwords that need to be entered on each sync (less convenient), everyone can use their own password with ease and optimal security. 2. Fast Initial Sync MirrorSync now runs a server-side initial sync! It will save an empty clone of the file, and temporarily host the empty file copy on FileMaker Server where it runs a fast server to server sync of only the selected records you want to sync. This is especially helpful if you have a massive database and only want to sync a subset of records without draining the memory on the local device, such as an iPad or iPhone. Once the sync is complete, MirrorSync closes the file on the server and sends the pre-populated file down to your users. 3. Monitor Your Sync Statistics MirrorSync now reports sync stats to AWS CloudWatch. You can get real-time updates on important metrics such as sync times, warnings, and other notifications. Having this insight at your fingertips will make you instantly aware of issues or difficulties your users may be running into. Watch a Video on this Topic Now! We enjoy meeting up with our fellow FileMaker Developers at DevCon. Each year, we like to catch up with Richard Carlton Consulting who offers educational and entertaining FileMaker training that will keep you engaged and leave you with the knowledge and tools you need to be an excellent FileMaker Developer.

  5. 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)?
  6. 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
  7. Hello Is it possible to use MirrorSinc with an App built with iOs Development Kit?
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  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. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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

    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
  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. 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.

    Installation error

    Hi all,  i am using the Demo version of MirrorSync V1.5. i have used the other versions without any problems on another Mac computer, however i have changed to a Mac Mini Know.  the last version i used was V1.406  i am get this error message when i go to install the program. Refer to pic.  is there a fix for this???  any help would be good Thanks in advance  Â
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.

  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. What am I missing?
  24. 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
