  1. 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.

  2. Hi, in which order are the tables synced when MirrorSync starts? Is this done in the order how they occur in the "sync" Layout folder? We are syncing quite a few tables and use filters in the customization script to reduce the amount of records to be synced. We want to start syncing the relevant projects, then only the relevant phases of these projects and then only the relevant tasks of these phases ... That is why we need to synchronize in this order ... project-phase-task If we start the customization script (MirrorSync Customization) from the different sync Layouts in the "right" order of the tables all filters work fine. My question from the beginning is one of my first steps to look for my mistake :-) Kind regards from Germany Carsten
  3. I have already posted here: https://community.filemaker.com/thread/170677 and have some thoughts in mind, but I will copy what I put in there, here. Avoid FMGo Connection Interrupted Server Timeout Disconnect In the attached links, it goes back to questions that I had that dealt with a file on an iOs device, making sure it stays live and up to date. So what I have done is worked on a local file that syncs to the one on the server. That seemingly works, however there is a problem that just recently came up when I was testing. When the local file tries to reach the file on the server, it doesn't always connect. In talking with others there is two consensus of what might be the cause: The Wireless access point is blocking access File security permissions are not working (File Access tab in Security) "Reset All" temporarily works (on the server file) Deauthorizing and Authorizing sometimes works (on the server file) Turning off the File Access requirement doesn't seem to help (on the server file) I do have File Access on the local file, but I haven't tried turning that off. Since I can't debug exactly what is going on, on the iPad this makes it harder. (I have put in some custom dialogs to see some things.) The local file with the syncing to the server file works on my desktop, but that is a wired connection. (I could try the same wireless connection.) It could be that I'm making a duplicate of the local file and putting that on the iPad, which makes the file not work. (I put on the duplicate file on the iPad newly each time for testing, because I need a file without certain info on it, which will be filled later [dealing with Get(PersistentID)].) Is there something I'm not thinking of? To my knowledge, it had been working until recently. I'll try a few more things, but hopefully get answers in the meantime. Thank you
  4. When using MirrorSync, backend development doesn't stop and it can be tedious to get the word out to inform all users that a new version of your solution is available to download. Here is a technique to do just so: Step 1: Create a table in your solution VERSION this table will have the minimum fields of a UID | version | URL | Time Stamp Create | Time Stamp Modify Step 2: Add this layout to your existing mirror sync layouts sync_version and put all fields on the layout as required by MS, and configure the table to sync hub to spoke ignoring changes in spoke and hub always wins conflicts. Step 3: Add a record to this table and start the version number at 1 and copy and paste the download link url provided by the MS config tool. Step 4: Make a cartesian join between this table your your main interface table where your users naturally perform the sync operation. Step 5: Add a Script: Version ( Check | Update ) the two parameters will either check the version and inform you of a new update, and a way to copy and download the URL. Step 6: On your main layout add a button that will hide when the variable $$version_update ≠ 1 (and also you can test to see if your not on the live version by testing of host name) Step 7: Button passes the "update" parameter to the script that simply copies the URL from off the side of the layout and presents a dialog box to the user to close the file and paste the URL into Safari where it will download the file and replace the original. How it works is fairly simple. When you have a new build ready, you go to the version table (single record table) and increment the version number, then open the script and update the version number there. When the user performs a sync they will be given the newest value from the version table - then you can run this "check" portion of the script to compare the value against local value from their script version which would be out of sync. The end result will light up a button informing them that a new build is ready to download.
  5. 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. What is the best practice for retrieving the last sync timestamp? I want GO users to be aware of how much time has elapsed since their last sync as a reminder to sync often. I know the timestamp lives on the MirrorSync table, but I would have to make a new occurrence of the MirrorSync table and relate it to all the tables that have layouts that contain the timestamp which seems awkward. If I can get a timestamp of the last sync in a global field, I can run it through a custom function that outputs the time ago in words (e.g. 3 hours ago, or 5 minutes ago, etc.), and put it on my interfaces.
  8. Hello there, I'm just investigating on 2 issue I have on sync 2 DB, 1 on the server and 1 on the iPad that are set to use a Spoke Db in the middle tier. Basically the sync is set to copy ALL the data from some tables on the server to the local db and send some data from the local db to the end server db. For some reason, on a large table, called Articles, with more than 130k records, the sync does not copy all the record for some users. There is no 'filter' based on user on the end db, and I run a pre-populate sync on the spoke db that copied all 130k records. When the sync is run for that specific user, the final result on the iPad is that the sync DELETES 12k records for no apparent reason. In addition, there is a Global table that has always 1 records and is get from the server to the client. But I found some times that there are several records on that table (more than 10) on the server, even if the sync is set to write on the spoke and not viceversa for that table. I have the suspect that are written from the sync. Is it possible? Thanks in advance, Gianluca
  9. After upgrading to MirrorSync 3 from 2, I can no longer sync container fields. During the reconfiguration process, I get the tooltip in the uploaded image below. The tooltip says "Neither field is writable. This could be because they are calculation or summary fields. It could also be caused by field-level validation or custom access privileges.". These container fields are not calc or summary fields. There is no field level validation or custom access privileges that I know if. They are full access, and the fields have not changed since my last MirrorSync 2 configuration. Please help!
  10. Hello, We are running FileMaker Server 14 with a database for creating job tickets and managing production in a commercial printing company. We would like to have remote sales staff have the ability to enter new job tickets and review existing job tickets but only be able to see jobs for their clients. We also have several very large clients that have asked for the ability to enter their own jobs into the database themselves in order to ease our sales staff's workload transcribing data from received emails. However, the customer must not be able to see jobs from our other customers. Is it possible to setup a one way sync for data collection from the sales staff and our customers remote machines AND sync back to their machines only the records that match certain critieria? This would be: 1. SALES STAFF - Jobs where the salesperson has been assigned to the customers master record or the job tickets record. 2. CUSTOMERS - Jobs where the company name on the job ticket matches their company name. Both would be using either filemaker pro desktop or filemaker go. Jerry Bernard DSJ Printing, Inc.
  11. Hi guys! First post please go easy on me if I ask silly questions haha! So I'm developing a FM Go app for one of my friends, now he sells things at roadshows, conventions so on and so forth. My question is, if for example, he has no Wifi/3G. How does he go about "syncing" or "uploading" the new data he has collected offline, to the database on the network in the office? Sorry if it seems unclear, I'm relatively new to this sort of thing. Thanks in advance, Sean.
  12. I'm sure this is covered somewhere but my search didn't turn anything up. Is there a flag in MirrorSync that I can use to trigger a script if there is a successful sync? I believe I saw this somewhere but can't locate it. In particular I'm looking to trigger a script on FM Go. Thanks!
  13. 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!

  15. I'm having an issue with and offline sync setup that I created. I used the basic outline as described in the FM white paper for offline syncing. I'm using a transactional model for the whole sync process, so there is a final commit at the end if things don't throw an error. It is this final commit that is currently giving me problems. When this commit fires, all of the records that were created during the sync process are once again tagged as being 'modified', and so the modification timestamps are updating again. Here's an example: say I sync 3 records at 22:43. During the sync process the modification time stamps for these 3 new records, reflected at the destination, are: 1: 15:00 2: 13:24 3: 18:31 That's as it should be. But then at the end of the process, when the final commit happens, the three records change: 1: 18:31 2: 18:31 3: 18:31This sync process has a modification override feature, such that when a record is recreated at the destination it will still show the modification TS from when it was created/edited at the source, not when it was copied to the destination (the server). The FM white paper does this with a 'modification_TS' override field. So I have two mod_TS fields: 1 is a standard 'last record modification TS' called "zModTS_Always", and the other is "ModTS_Useful" field that is supposed to reflect the timestamp the record was modified by the user, and not the one where it was modified by the sync process. This override field is used only during the sync process. It is defined thusly: If( zModTS_Always and Sync::ModOverride_g ; Sync::ModOverride_g ; zModTS_Always ) This is important because you don't want the modification time to be changing whenever someone syncs - this would cause all kinds of re-syncing between users. My problem is that the final commit at the end of the sync process is causing all the records that were just created at the destination to have their 'Useful' timestamp updated one last time, and set equal to the 'useful' time stamp of the last record sync'ed. It isn't the timestamp at the point of the sync itself, the override field is still functioning as expected, it is just being fired for records that are not the current record. This might not be too much of a problem...at least the times are something prior to the sync time. But I am sorting a portal of these records based on this timestamp, and having them all with the same timestamp makes the sort rather useless. Or if I were to commit each record after it was created, that would probably solve the problem - but that eliminates the transactional benefits. So I'm just not certain what is causing all these records to be modified one final time when the commit is done. Anyone familiar with maintaining modification timestamps using a transactional technique? Thanks, Justin PS. Lee, sorry if this is in the wrong place; I didn't see any other sub-forums anymore, just the 14/13/Older general discussions.
  16. I'm trying to get a sample offline iOS synch process running and ran into some issues with the file references. I am following the guidelines set out here (FM TechNet doc): https://community.filemaker.com/docs/DOC-3838 My first problem is with the deployment of the Connector file. This file is stored in a container field in the 'deployed' file (the one running on the iOS device in offline mode, i.e. NOT hosted). So this 'deployed' file is running locally, and it contains the 'Connector' file in a container field. This connector file gets exported and opened. Once it is opened, it is supposed to have references to BOTH the locally running deployed file and the hosted version of the DB file, in order to move data between them. But when I open the connector file I am getting 'file not found' errors for the references back to the locally running 'deployed' file. It appears that my reference to the locally running 'deployed' file is wrong. What should it be? The external data source definition is currently a simple: "file:<FileName>" string. (The connector file is exported to the Documents path, and then opened via an FMP URL similar to this: "fmp://~/Connector?script=StartSync".) What is the file path of a file local to the iOS device, that was probably delivered via a email? (Hmmm...could you deliver these 'deployed' files from a container field in the hosted DB? They would have to connect using 'open remote' once to get that file.) The 2nd question is that I would like to make a call to the hosted version of this file such that it doesn't open a new window. The sync process does a simple call to a script in the hosted file in order to verify that the file is available. But in doing so, the hosted file runs its 'file open' script, which opens a new window and takes the user to a layout. So on the iOS device, the user would now have two windows showing, which I don't want. I don't want any UI for the hosted file visible. (I haven't actually tested this on a device yet.) Thanks, Justin
  17. I have a client with several iPads in the field. One today failed to sync, though the others have been syncing fine. I had him close the FileMaker file, quit Go and all other apps, and restart his iPad before syncing again. Same error. I restarted the WPE and the Tomcat server. Same error. Had him restart again while I restarted WPE and Tomcat. Same error. Others had since synced fine. Below is the error we are getting. I redacted the domain and client's IP address. I told him to click "Report Bug" so you should have that.
  18. Hello from New FM user - Is MirrorSync a solution that would work for us? I purchased FM13 Single License and the FM solution we developed works great; but needs to be shared on 2 Macbooks and ipad. My husband, Richard (RB), is a realtor with average of 25-30 listings at any time. FM File is not too huge or complicated and I only have 1 photo per listing. SETUP/ACCESS - We cannot use FM Server or other web-based solution as we live in rural area and are on satellite with monthly usage cap of 25GB. RB and I use macbooks at home with router for sharing printers, etc. He takes his macbook into the office nearly every day and uses it there with WIFI. I do 95% of FM data entry on my macbook (I guess I am the ‘host’?). RB will occasionally update showings and contact info (preferably on macbook, but could be on ipad). VISION OF Workflow: 1. I need to update records anytime during the day (not on internet since it is sketchy) 2. RB needs to access FM file on his Mac from work or home Problem ? - Some posts say we cannot have 2 copies of the file open at one time? 3. RB could use FM Go on ipad without internet. Would like to lookup a price or show client a photo,but he has no internet or cell service since he is standing in a cornfield 4. UPDATES/SYNC - We DO NOT need to have each others updates in 'real-time". I just need to update the 3 copies every day or so. Am confused with all the options I have read about using our router, iTUNES, emailing files, jump drive, Dropbox, et al. I have also seen warnings about FM File corruption with various sync scenarios. Any other suggestions, comments welcome - Thank you! Vicki
  19. I'm a relative newcomer to FM, so please excuse me if this question has been addressed before (and point me to it :-) ) Our setup is a SQL server backend server housing our main application data, which we'd like to sync with FM running on iPads. From going through the MirrorSync documentation, I'm still unclear as to whether the you can sync directly from a FM Go (iPad) instance directly to SQL server using Mirror Sync, or whether you always need FM Server to be in the setup? If it's a case that FM Server is always needed, does that mean that you need for e.g. 40users : 40 FMGo -> FM Server licenses, and 1 FM server <-> SQL Server license? Thanks Tom
  20. I want to sync an existing database which I accidently used offline. So I have two files haveing basicly the same structure, but some hundret records in a few tables are out of sync. The goal is to get the records existing in the offline version only into the online version. Because I have serial numbered PKeys I cannot simply export and import , because there's an overlap as some new records have been created in the online version. Â So I setup the free MirrorSync to give it a shot. I setup MirrorSync on my workstation as i did not want to fiddle with the server. I created the MirrorSync Tables and Layouts and the scripts as advised by the MirrorSync Frontend. I setup the relations in MirrorSync so I get coherent records in the online database. Â After having everything setup I closed the offline version on the server and downloaded it to my workstation. I even kicked out all my startup related stuff in both versions (online & offline) Went to the MirrorSync Layout (offline) and hit the SyncButton. It looked promising at first, but the Skript seems to be stuck in a loop whilst prompting: "Status: Waiting for response from MirrorSync server..." And the MirrorSync Frontend show one error: "java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: For FileMaker Pro/Go, the sync must be initiated from the offline database." Â What's going on there? Am I totally wrong and this tool wont do what I want or is there something else amiss? Â Â Â
  21. Hi all, I am getting an error tat I cannot seem to get past. The error string that comes up is: I have been through the text and I cannot find any issues, spaces or extraneous characters. Anyone have any ideas?
  22. 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. Hi all, I'm having trouble syncing container fields. I am using the latest version of MirrorSync (2.012) and when I run a sync, I get a "Sync completed successfully" status, however, when I check the online database, the images stored in the container fields in the spoke have not been synced, and the same vice versa. I have checked the external data sources and the URL and filename information is correct. Port 5003 is open and forwarded. When i run the Sync a second time, i get a message saying sync successful, and a breakdown of what has changed, which shows 1 item modified, even when there have been no further records changed in the database. I am assuming this has something to do with the image from the container field but when i check, this is still not populated. does anyone have any ideas? Lloyd
  24.   MirrorSync 2 now available! Featuring faster syncs, server to server, and much more!   360Works is proud to announce the release of MirrorSync 2! MirrorSync 1.5 was selected as the FileMaker Solution of the Year for 2013, and gave everyday FileMaker users the power to synchronize their FileMaker Server files with FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go. MirrorSync 2 takes syncing to a new level with support for server-to-server synchronization, separate mobile files, field-level conflict resolution, multiple simultaneous device sync, and much more. With these new features, you’ve got the power to take your data with you anywhere, and at our new price points, it doesn’t make any sense not to.   Server-to-server sync   Now, keep all of your databases in sync, even if they aren’t in FileMaker! Avoid slow ESS shadow tables, complex nightly FTP batch scripts, or finicky ODBC drivers, and instead work with a speedy local database requiring no additional setup for the end user. Sync with any combination of two: MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, generic JDBC database, and FileMaker Server. FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server even supports container data!   Configuration is still a snap, as our signature guided process provides a drag and drop interface for mapping fields between disparate databases. Syncs can be triggered manually, or set to run on a schedule you specify. Conflicts are automatically merged at a field level, but if a field is modified in both databases, you can select pre-defined rule sets to determine which is the winner, or be notified by email when this occurs.   Mobile device syncing   MirrorSync 2 gives you complete control over the mobile sync process. You decide whether to distribute an exact copy of your server-hosted file, or design a separate file optimized for mobile devices and use MirrorSync’s simple drag and drop field mapping to match everything up. We’ve also provided detailed customization options for you to add your own record-filtering and editing logic before records are searched, updated, added, or deleted to provide you with total control.   All new conflict resolution   New conflict resolution will automatically merge users’ changes to separate fields in the same record. If there is still conflicting data, we’ve provided an all new interface to pick and choose whose information is correct, or change the information right from the conflict screen. In addition, developers can specify during configuration whether end users should resolve conflicts themselves, only by administrators, or automatically based on rule sets.   Greatly improved performance   Syncing is now lightning fast overall. Some operations, like writing changes to FileMaker Server, are 20 times faster than MirrorSync 1.5. Our testing shows write speeds of 160 records per second for FileMaker server-to-server syncs, and even faster than that for SQL databases. For large record sets, deletion scanning is potentially hundreds of times faster. We’ve tightened up the container syncs, the deletion scans, and much more to provide the fastest and best sync experience for your users. Offline file distribution couldn’t be easier: The re-written download link feature of MirrorSync lets you email your users a simple URL that downloads a highly compressed version of the database, even on iOS.   MirrorSync 2 also features...   Multiple devices syncing at the same time   True multithreaded synchronizations means that MirrorSync 2 lets multiple devices sync to the same server simultaneously. You can now support hundreds of users with offline devices.   Configure sync directions and options on a per table basis   MirrorSync 2 offers customization options on a per table basis. Sync bidirectional, one way server-to-client or client-to-server based on what table the data is in.   Better support for user-visible serial numbers   User-visible serial numbers, such as job numbers, invoice numbers, and P.O. numbers have always presented a challenge in offline synchronized solutions. MirrorSync 2 makes this extremely simple by adding a ‘write-back’ feature, which will store the serial number generated on the server back to the offline file when it is synced.   Even better setup process.   MirrorSync 1.5 had a very easy integration process, and MirrorSync 2 makes it even better. Smarter detection of primary keys and modification timestamps, automatic foreign key detection, simpler layout creation, and automatic schema generation for SQL databases make it a snap to get MirrorSync integrated into your solution.   Pricing? How does “free” sound?   We thought you’d like that. MirrorSync 2 is FREE for syncing a single FileMaker Pro or Go device with FileMaker Server. If you have a remote employee who needs fast access on their laptop, or if the boss wants instant access to the company sales reports on his iPad, you’ll pay nothing to use MirrorSync. Additional mobile device licenses range from $50-$95 depending on quantity, and server-to-server syncs cost between $500 and $1,600 depending on what type of database servers you’re syncing. By popular request, we’ve also added an unlimited device licensing option for a flat $4,000.   MirrorSync 2 is included with the 360Works Portfolio Bundle, which means that current subscribers will receive an additional 10 devices (a $600 value) in addition to the free device license. Upgrade pricing from version 1 is also available.   Download your free copy of MirrorSync now from our website:    http://360works.com/filemaker-sync
