  1. We have deployed SuperContainer in a large corporate set up. Upon upload, no problems for anyone. Upon download some users (only!) are experiencing that the filename changes to a number (the number of the folder that SuperContainer stores the file in). How can I rectify that so that the file keeps it actual filename?
  2. Hello, I installed supercontainer on my Windows server at aws Amazon. I also installed the companion plug-in. It shows up on Filemaker Pro no problem. But it doesn't show on webdirect. Any idea? Here is my configuration: - FMS 15, Windows 2016 server. - SuperContainer 2.94, build 9234. - I have the companion plugin put inside "..\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\cwpc\Plugins". - The plug-in I use is "SuperContainer_Companion_Plugin.fmx64". Thanks. P.S.: I will send an email to 360works. But just want to post it here so we can all share the solution. Thanks.
  3. greetings all! A question for the network security gurus: I have Supercontainer running in standalone mode. My router has port forwarding to the machine (Mac-mini). My credit card vendor requires security IP address scans and I am failing due to the port forwarding on the router. what is best practice? I am using a router flashed with Tomato Shibby.
  4. I can install SuperContainer 2.93 for my FM Server 14 running on OSX Mavericks, and got it running fine. However I am not sure how to install the Companion Plugin. I copied the SuperContainer Companion Plugin 2.93 into different folders /Library/Filemaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/cwpc/Plugins /Library/Filemaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/wpc/Plugins /Library/Filemaker Server/Database Server/Extensions but I still get an error message when I start the SuperContainer Example.fmp12 file saying that the SuperContainer Companion plugin is not installed. I did restart FM. Tried rebooting the osx machine, and restarted FM Server and SuperContainer. Would appreciate some help!!
  5. Wondering what the status of SuperContainer and DocuBin are for use with FileMaker 14? Been trying to get them configured on my dev FMS14 machine without a lot of luck yet.
  6. Hi, hope you can help. After the Mac crashing I have reinstalled Supercontainer on another Mac using Filemaker 11 Server (everything worked ok on the previous server). When I connect on a Filemaker client Mac the database and the images all view correctly. However, when I view on a web browser only a few of the images are showing. I have attached a screen grab so you can see what I mean. It's probably something to do with how I have installed the software but I can't work out why. Please help Thanks Peter
  7. Hi, SC is working well as always, but since I changed computers, when I click on a (e.g.) .pdf file inside SC, it opens in Internet explorer, when I would like very much that the file just opens in my default .pdf browser. Where are the settings to change this behaviour? Thanks so much in advance for your help and advice.
  8. So I am somewhat new to SuperContainer and to designing layouts in FileMaker. I have a database for a film I am working on and in the database is a record for every clip we have in the movie. We also have an image that matches the data for every clip that is in the movie. What I would like to do is be able to batch import all of the photos (using the batch import option in the Super Container Sample) and link all of the files from that batch import to the web viewers I have setup in my film database. I have toyed around with the address in web viewer, however since every record is a different filename I am getting confused how to link it to the batched photos I brought in with SuperContainer. Is there an easy way to do this, so if I create new records in my film database and then subsequently batch import their matching photos, things will automatically link up? I want to be able to use SuperContainer to speed up my database. I am excited at the prospect of this product, just don't really understand how it works yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Position Title: Database developer Description of Duties: The Hawaii Association for Marine Education and Research (HAMER) is looking for a relational database developer with knowledge integrating Filemaker Pro Advanced, SuperContainers, and hosting the database on FM Server Advanced. Manta rays are some of the largest fish in the sea, reaching wingspans over 22 feet. Island-associated populations are small and can be severely threatened by fisheries targeting manta rays for export to East Asia. This work is to better understand these populations and implement sustainable, management practices to insure the protection of these extremely vulnerable manta ray populations. The database will consist of a catalog of manta ray individuals (each manta ray has a unique pattern of spots on their ventral side) with related information such as when and where the manta was observed; physical characteristics such as gender, age class, body size, mating scars, pregnancy, and injuries; which other manta rays were also present during that observation; geospatial tracks of tagged individuals; and genetic information for biopsied individuals. The majority of the field-work will occur in Hawaii (Maui and Big Island), Palmyra, Guam, Yap, and Pohnpei. The catalog would also show the history of sightings for that individual (number of sightings, growth rate, number of times observed pregnant, photo from each previous encounter) and a map displaying the location of each sighting for that individual. The database should be designed for both scientists (ability to incorporate large amounts of information, perform calculations such as growth rates and discovery curves) but would also accommodate the average user who simply wishes to upload their photo(s) to the catalog with a time and place (using a simple web browser and a drag and drop SuperContainer). Interns would be responsible each day for going through the “bucket” of new photographs and matching these new images to the current catalog showing the best image of each individual. If a match is found, the individual is added as a resight, or if a match is not found, a new manta ray is added to the catalog. All users should have the ability to search the catalog if they so choose. The majority of this database has already been created but needs to be greatly refined and incorporated to use SuperContainer and published with Filemaker Server. The goal is to allow any user to contribute to the database or process new data remotely needing only the internet and a web browser. Compensation for the developer can be in the form of assisting with field-work in Hawaii, Guam, and/or Micronesia (diving with manta rays), or financial by incorporating labor costs into the grant application. HAMER is a 501 (c ) 3 nonprofit dedicated to protecting and preserving manta ray populations through research and education in order to implement effective management practices. Location: Hawaii Deadline: Immediately Position: Part Time / Consultants can apply Employment: OffSite (Remote) Skills Required: FM Pro relational database developer Basic mapping integration SuperContainers and Filemaker Server Advanced hosting combined Compensation: Negotiable Contact Details: For questions regarding this project, please email Mark at deakos@hawaii.edu or call 808-280-6448. Disclaimer: FM Forums does not endorse or warrantee these positions please contact the poster for further information regarding the position particulars.
  10. Does anyone know what FMSError=no subscriber refers to when enabling the plug-in? Permission for the plug-in is correct. Thanks, Agi
  11. I have an inherited solution where I am working with a View Document script.  The script uses Open URL with the following URL:  file:///var/folders/bh/5s1s45p92r3c0gjjhmtzdzgr0000gn/T/supercontainer_downloads_darrenburgess/PDoc/8142/filename=%22test.jpg%22  This URL is generated by the SCDownload function in a previous step and does not return ERROR.  The URL does appear to be a valid path on the local machine, and there is file named 'filename="Test.jpg" ' in that location and this file appears to be a valid JPG file, although it lacks an extension.  See attached screen shot of the script steps in question.  Please advise regarding how to resolve this issue.
  12. I have successfully implemented SuperContainer on a few projects. I am now working on one where I'll actually use iterations. In doing so, I created little Image Nav buttons under the web viewer, to browse through the existing images. So if there are three images, it says, "Image 1 of 4". As such, I need to manage the "iterations" when a file gets deleted. Say I am on Image 2 of 4. When the user clicks delete, it deletes the image, and I am left with iterations 1, 3, and 4. For my nav to work, I need to renumber them. To do this, I loop through each and basically say: Set Variable [$iteration.new = $iteration.current] Set Variable [$iteration.old = $iteration.new + 1] SCMove ( $path & "/" & $iteration.old; $path & "/" & $iteration.new; "filename=" & filename.new) (note, filename.new is reconstructed with the new iteration number prior to those steps) So I successfully loop through and repeat this until I'm on the last iteration. Works great. They each get moved within the Files structure. Image 2 is deleted, Image 3 becomes Image 2; Image 4 becomes Image 3. However, they are NOT being moved and deleted properly in the Thumbnails structure. My web viewer must be using the thumbnails, as it shows the same one for images 2 and 3. However when I click on Image 3, it opens the correct one (different than what is being displayed in the web viewer). I opened the folders in Finder and could see that the folder structures do not match. Thumbnails shows Image 1 (correct), Image 2 (correct), Image 3 (incorrect - same as Image 2), and Image 4 (should now be Image 3). Any ideas?
  13. I recently changed premises and I notice that my supercontainer is being blocked because it doesn't have the necessary certificate any more. Not sure if it's becasue I updated Java recently or becasue I am with another Internet provider. I updated to the latest version of Supercontainer (2.89) but still no luck. Below is the log. Any help would be so grateful?

  14. I am changing the Document Management system for a large FileMaker-based system I have been developing and maintaining for the past six years. The documents are currently stored on a network share. I am moving them to a different network share, but this will be on a separate server from our FileMaker Server (Advanced 12). I have successfully installed SuperContainer on the FMS machine. I changed the web.xml file to point to the network share, so the XML node now reads: <context-param> <param-name>windowsFilesPath</param-name> <param-value>fas3140-m3-1a-cifsap_fmp$SuperContainerFiles</param-value> <description>This is where the files will be stored when running on the Windows platform.</description> </context-param> Do I also need to include our network account/password that we use to access this share? I saw nodes for simpleAuthUsername and simpleAuthPassword further down the document. Perhaps it's just the un/pw that is missing and needed. Ideas?? Thank you!
  15. We are in the process of testing DocuBin access via Citrix XenApp 6. I'm running into a couple of issues and hoped someone might have some experience or insight, or perhaps just some tips on using DocuBin via Citrix. I have DocuBin set up as a published app and am accessing it via Citrix Online Plugin on a Mac running OS X 10.7. Also tested on a Mac running OS X 10.5.8. Issue 1. When exporting a selection from DocuBin, I get the following error "java.lang.NullPointerException [superContainer]" when I try to save the selection to the root level of drive U:/, which is mapped to my local desktop. I do NOT get the error when I save to another folder on my desktop, e.g., U:/files/ . I would like users to be able to save directly to drive U:/ -- their local desktop directory -- without having to create a new folder to save documents to. Issue 2. When I try to upload a large file, the Citrix Online Plugin is quitting unexpectedly and when I log back in to the Citrix published app, it shows an error "insufficient data written [superContainer]. Perhaps the quitting unexpectedly is unrelated to the error -- i.e., the error is caused because the file transfer was interrupted because of the Citrix Online Plugin unexpectedly quitting. Any help would be appreciated.
  16. We are looking for a filemaker iwp solution or example file that import files to a container field using a web browser. Supercontainer seems to work but it never does. No problem installing the plugin in FMServer. the problem is functions never work well on the web or we don't get there easly. This is very important to us. Thanks, Jose
  17. Hello, Experiencing a strange behavior. We had to emergency switch our SuperContainer Server. Everything seems to be working as expected except the function SCSetBaseURL is sending back an Error message for one person. OS: Mountain Lion FM Version: 10 We installed the latest version of SuperContainer. It is successfully serving (and transforming) our images. It is also uploading fine through the browser. When I used our FM database I received an error notifying me that SCSetBaseURL was sending back an error code. After review I noticed that my FM 10 had the plugin in the extensions folder but my FM 10 Advanced did not. I downloaded and placed the plugin into my FM 10 Advanced Extensions directory and it worked fine. I can successfully upload images through FM. My coworker is getting the same message. I installed the plugin from the exact same version of FM that we're using and it's still failing I verified that Java was installed and working on his machine. Reviewed file permissions, that the plugin was loaded and recognized by FM. Does anyone have any suggestions or help on how I can determine why the SuperContainer plugin isn't setting the Base URL for my coworker but it does me? Thanks, Travis
  18. Hello, I have installed supercontainer and it works well but when I try to upload a file I get this error "the specified action was denied by the server" in both, Filemaker Pro and IWP. My web container url is "http://localhost:80/SuperContainer/Files". Thanks. Jorge Marques
  19. Java 7

    We are using FileMaker Sever 11 and SuperContainer. Will SuperContainer be Java 7 compatible?
  20. Because the security capabilities of SC alone are far under what my application requires by law, I need something that will allow me to completely block access to all SC folders/URLs, no matter what, unless users login to each folder (URL) individually, preferably synced w/ LDAP, or at least blocked based on access to each database. I do plan on using UUIDs, but that doesn't prevent access via URL in general. I don't wan't people uploading various junk files simply because they understand how SC works. I have read that running Tomcat as the primary web server can do this, but I also see in the SC documentation the following: "Option 3: Installing SuperContainer with Tomcat This approach is recommended for advanced users if you are running Linux, Solaris, or any other computer not running FileMaker Server Advanced." We're running Windows Server 2008 R2 w/ IIS, and we're running FMS Advanced 12. Am I able to run a copy of Tomcat simultaneously w/ IIS just for using with SC, or am I completely out of luck? Thanks!
  21. I was wondering if anyone had given this a go I am trying to get the data from the file via running the script on the server. I have installed the plugin on the server and using remotescriptor plugin. does not seem to work with these. Am I barking up the wrong tree it would be very helpful if this could be done Just want to get a value and set it to a Variable then set that to a field on the server side.
  22. I'm having great success with the PHP site assistant aside from one major issue. I'm not able to display images stored in Supercontainer. The code below will return a broken link. If I take the reference link and paste it into any web browser on any computer on any network, the link works fine. What obvious step am I missing? <td rowspan="8" class="field_data"> <?php echo "<img src='' title='Error' alt='Error' />";?> </td>
  23. Hi there, Have just installed Supercontainer and very excited to get it working. I have a few questions that I just haven't found the answers to in the documenation or in the forums; 1. Although the Java server stipulates the IP to be my actual computer name; 01/02/12 09:29:19 - SuperContainer URL: http://Maria-HP:8020/SuperContainer I replaced the computer name with the local IP of my computer. Is that correct? 2. Within my local network, SC works fine, but it doesn't work from outside the Wide Area Network. Do I need to open the port 8020 on my router for it to work? 3. I am publishing my database on port 591, should I change the SC port to also be 591 or do I have to leave it on 8020? 4. I see that it is possible to drop several files into one SC as mentioned in the documenation; Note that the SuperContainer URL can contain as many elements as you like. If a given asset can have 3 images uploaded to it, you could either create a new table for holding the images, or use the following URL schema: "http://yourServer.com:8020/SuperContainer/Files/Asset/" & myTable::ID & "/1" "http://yourServer.com:8020/SuperContainer/Files/Asset/" & myTable::ID & "/2" "http://yourServer.com:8020/SuperContainer/Files/Asset/" & myTable::ID & "/3" But when I replicate this kind of web address into the SC I am required to put a '&' between each line? Sorry about my ignornace, I just don't really understand how to do this? 5. Regarding the styles, if I have a web address that looks like this "" & Lesson Plans::Lesson No#?style=bold+nodelete it looks for the field or file 'Lesson No#?style' which obvioiusly doesn't work. How exactly do I write the styles in order to customize them? Apologies about my newbie SC questions, but I feel I am so close to getting it up and running, just a little help needed. Thank you so much in advance, Maria
  24. Hi there, Just purchased myself supercontainer and very excited to get using it. I notice that in the IWP supercontainer, the upload and browse buttons are not aligned as if they are pushing each other onto the next line (see .jpg attachment). What am I doing wrong? How do I get rid of the engraved/embossed look (the black strips on the left and top) and is there any way to get rid of the vertical and horizontal scroll bars? Clients are only going to upload .pdf's, so the webviewer is going to be small. Ultimatelly, I am going to have to play around with the companion to reduce the size of the upload and browse buttons. Thanks so much for all your kind advice, Maria Sorry, my previous post sat processing so I posted it again, only to later see that my original post did actually get posted. How do I delete this second post? Thanks so much
  25. Hi to everyone and hope you can help a newbie out. I am fairly new to filemaker and filemaker go, but having recently got a ipad and subscribed to the free super container from 360works. I upload or drag and drop the document into the container. As FM go does not have a file system I presume I need to drag and drop the document and would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Regards to all
