Grundly posted a topic in The Separation ModelHello folks I am experiencing a peculiar behaviour, which is creating a user case problem, in a solution that is utilizing the Data Separation Model and WebDirect. I need to know if this behavior is normal, a bug, or if my implementation is incorrect. I've got an interface file and a data file. Each file has two Privilege Sets defined (in addition to [Full Access]); call them Floor and Manager. Floor has very restricted access, and Manager has more liberal access (but no where near Full Access). Scenario 1) I've made a script in the interface file which performs a re-login. A user logs in as Floor privileges via WEBDIRECT. User then performs the script and enters credentials for Manager. The interface file successfully performs the re-login and gains the privileges associated with Manager. However, the data file does NOT change, it does not re-login, and it still exhibits the behaviour of the Floor privileges. I know this is an incorrect implementation. Which brings me to: Scenario 2) I've made a script in the interface file which collects the account name and password from the user (show custom dialogue), stores them in temporary global fields and as local variables, clears the temporary global fields (keeps the variables), then performs the re-login using those variables (which works). The interface file gains the new privileges as expected. Then, that same interface script calls a re-login script in the data file, passes those login credentials to it, and then performs a re-login there in the data file as well. This works perfectly in FileMaker Pro Advanced, but it does not work in WebDirect. WebDirect still exhibits the same behaviors as described in Scenario 1: interface file does gain the new privileges, but the data file remains unchanged, retaining the original login's privilege set. Thus, how can I make WebDirect act like FileMaker Pro in regards to getting both parts of data separation model to perform a re-login? Thank you
I've got a solution designed as a separation model where data is split among 6 files and I am working on an upgrade. I'm planning to consolidate those 6 files under three with the following criteria: One file with messages because it gets quite big in size Another file with all of the value list tables I use because there are quite many and they require relationships only for value lists A file with the rest of the data Is this a good way to distribute the data? would be better a single big file, even if it grows up to 800MB? which design criteria would you apply with this scenario? Thanks,
TJ53 posted a topic in FileMaker WebDirectHello, I'm testing FMS16 WebDirect with a two files solution (an interface file that loads a data file). When the inteface file opens, it doesn't load the data file. My FMS license has a limit of 1 user connection, that seems to be the issue. Does this means that a two files solution will use two connections per user that opens the solution?
FMS15 on MacMini with a known slow LAN and horrible Wifi. Solution consists of 3 files (UI, Data, Documents). All documents are external secured storage. UI and Data open on first window. However, documents file does not open until user navigates to a layout that displays a portal of documents. Therefore, this file is not opened on startup. Occasionally, the documents file does not open and displays "missing." This did not happen FMS12. I thought about scripting the opening of the documents file on open, but was wondering what might be the root cause. No OD, just using OS El Capitan Users and Groups. Tia, B
