  1. 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

  4. iOS Downloads, NEW Installer and More... 360Works MirrorSync, a FileMaker synchronization tool, has been updated to version 1.5. This version is a free upgrade for all current users, and includes new features and bug fixes.    We've given the MirrorSync installer a complete makeover, setting MirrorSync up as its own process. Also included in this update, our new iOS download feature makes distributing modified and new copies easy.    Download and install the update at 360works.com/mirrorsync   Download links: Get your changes to them faster than ever.   Now, you can distribute new copies of your file quickly and easily. Make modifications or layout updates? It's no problem with our new iOS features. Users are given a link that is easily accessible and downloads the latest copy of your file with all your changes. Disable the link at any time to prevent unauthorized access.   Copies of files can still be downloaded straight from MirrorSync and emailed, sent via Dropbox, or any other method.    Independent MirrorSync Installer   MirrorSync now runs in its own process, installing completely separately from the Web Publishing Engine.  This means that you can run MirrorSync where most convenient, even installed on a different computer than FileMaker Server. By having its own separate installer, MirrorSync is more stable, and reduces the load on the Web Publishing Engine.   Our new installer also comes with a lightweight admin application, allowing you to view the current installations of MirrorSync and stop, restart, and start as needed.    Hosting providers who provide MirrorSync will be pleased to know the installation process is much easier for multiple installations of MirrorSync. Hold down ALT on Windows when installing to define a new name for an instance, or select hosting provider installation in Mac. Either way, the process is now completely automated.    Full changelog   Features and Improvements in 1.5   NEW! Download links- instead of downloading a database and sending a copy of it to your users, you can generate a URL that you send to your users. Whenever they trigger this URL, it will download the most recent copy of the database from the server. Complete overhaul of the installer, which functions outside of WPE- makes both MirrorSync and the WPE more stable, and users no longer need to run MirrorSync on the same WPE machine. Now includes a native Mac Installer, certified for use with Mountain Lion and Gatekeeper. NEW! interface with easy to read icons Bug fixes and improvements, including a bug with adding new tables to the sync configuration, launching MirrorSync for the first time, and empty modification timestamps.  Download the update today, or try a free demo of MirrorSync at 360works.com.  
  5. 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.
  6. Not quite sure what to make of this, everything was working so well. I would not have expected ES_PUSH table sync to delete data from the client during sync. Perhaps my assumptions are wrong in this regard. Should just PUSH data from client to server. "EasySync supports both "push-only" and "pull-only" tables. To indicate that a table is to be pushed from the mobile device, but not pulled, use an "ES_PUSH_" prefix for the table occurrence's name. To indicate that a table is to be pulled from the host, but not pushed from the mobile device, use an "ES_PULL_" prefix for the table occurrence's name." I am finding that the last record entered is deleted from the iPad client after sync. The record deleted from the client/iPad is transferred to the server. More specifically the primary record remains but the last record entered in a related table is transferred to the server but deleted from the client. Feels like a 1 off loop error of some sort. One of my testers reports a slightly different result for a slightly larger dataset of 6 records. Three records were deleted from the iPad client and not transferred to the server. The remaining three remained on the iPad and were transferred to the server. My suspect here is that there are three UUIDs logical records ( not ES_UUID ) each connecting two related records in another table. My guess is that the last record related to each UUID is missing. Wondering about FM Easy Sync scripts: Sync with Server Sync Check Client • Removing 1 records that are no longer on the server. ( status message seen stepping through in debug, from my testing ) # Refresh Sync Status • Processing UUID Diff… Any thoughts or suggestions are most welcome. Thank you

  8. Hi I tested the EasySync demo files on my FM Server and iPad and the time taken to download the 106 pre-installed records is a mere 10 seconds which is great. I then moved on to a full integration into my FM solution, a Patient Management System for Aesthetic Clinics. There are 60 tables ranging in size from 10 fields up to 874 fields although the majority fall below 150 fields per table. Approx 50 tables require sync capability. Once I had completed the EasySync integration I set the sync into motion having added a single Patient record in my Patient table. The sync took a staggering 33 minutes. To try and identify why the sync was taking so long I deleted the ES_ table occurrences for all but 5 of my tables in both the hosted and mobile solutions. The subsequent sync time, again with a single new record came down to just over 2 mintues. My final test was to remove the ES_ table occurrences for all but my Patient table. The same test as above reduced the sync time to 18 seconds for a single record. Does this behaviour sound familiar to anyone else, and if so, is there a way of addressing it? EasySync looks like the answer to all of my sync problems, but if each sync is going to take upwards of half an hour once the full integration is restored, unfortunately it isn't going to be a workable solution. Thanks in advance for your help, Neil
  9. Ok another noob question: I have a small data base that i have created and want to be able to go around with my ipad and fill in the data, take pics and then get back to the office and have it synce with my original database, updating it with my most recent data. Is this possible threw itunes? I know I could pull the file back and forth threw itunes but can you sync it automaticly? Is there a better way? Thanks for your help.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Hey fellow syncers, stepping back from any method, I was wondering if there's an issue that all sync solutions have. The issue is this: Client A pushes a payload, and it's processed and ready for ClientB to receive...all nice and transactional. However, ClientB gathers records to pull a table at a time. Couldn't ClientB gather Orders - ClientA's processing completes - and ClientB gathers Order Line Items (thus, missing the parent record of some of those Order Lines since ClientB has already pulled Orders for his payload?). We're seeing this and wondering if it's a design flaw in EasySync or indicative of any sync solution that allow multiple users to sync at a time.
  13. 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.

  14. 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.
  15. MirrorSync gets smarter with version 1.43!   360Works MirrorSync, a FileMaker synchronization tool, has been updated to version 1.43. This version is a free upgrade for all current users, and includes new features and bug fixes. MirrorSync is easier than ever to configure, understand, and sync. We've improved the user experience to guide you in simple, plain English. Warning messages throughout are more friendly and easy to understand, and MirrorSync makes sure to double check your work. If data sets have duplicate keys, invalid date or time formats, MirrorSync now finds and shows you potential problems in your solution. We think everyone should be able to sync their solutions easily, without advanced FileMaker knowledge. In addition, MirrorSync is much more memory efficient. Throughout the sync, the server will use less memory and manage available memory much better. This release includes other features and important bug fixes. See the changelog below for details. Download and install the update at http://360works.com/mirrorsync Included in MirrorSync 1.42 If you haven't upgraded to the most recent version, MirrorSync 1.42 included better support for internal and external IP addresses, as well as separate IP addresses for multiple machine deployments. MirrorSync is smart enough to detect if you're syncing inside the network or outside of it, and automatically switching to the correct address seamlessly. Internal users will experience fast speeds within the network, and switch easily when outside of it. Full changelog Features and Improvements in 1.43 More user-friendly, readable error messages throughout MirrorSync Better memory management allows for support for initial sync of very large databases to an empty clone Switched to all numeric values when communicating with client instead of formatted strings for dates, times, and timestamps. This solves a variety of international date formatting issues. Now efficiently detects duplicate primary keys in the FileMaker database and warn the user. This has been our most frequent tech support issue with MirrorSync. Various sync speed improvements MirrorSync is now about 8 megabytes smaller by re-writing some overweight 3rd party libraries Added an ability to submit bug reports from the MirrorSync configuration utility (for bugs that occur in the setup process, not during sync) Bug Fixes in 1.43 Submitting bug reports is now more reliable Re-running a sync from a device after previous sync was canceled should now be more reliable (sometimes used to get a message that sync was still running) Fixed a case where MirrorSync sometimes ran in demo mode even after a valid license key had been registered Fixed a bug during initial sync when using UUIDs, if multiple records had been modified on the server prior to initial sync. Fixed a bug where text that contained HTML escape sequences (&quot; &gt; &lt; &nbsp; etc.. ) was not being sent correctly. Included in MirrorSync 1.42 Now supports configuration of separate internal and external IP addresses, as well as separate IP addresses for 1, 2, and 3 machine server deployments. More reliable communication over slow/unreliable networks Fixed a case where sometimes client would not send modifications to server, if the modification timestamp field was empty (because the field was just added) Located in metro Atlanta, 360Works, a FileMaker Platinum Business Alliance member, has been providing FileMaker-based solutions for 15 years.

  16. 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

  18. Hi All, Just saw on the FM website for the FM17, it doesn't support client version 14. If I want to setup a Server - Server Sync solution, Is it possible to do that between FM server 14 and FM server 17?? thanks
  19. We've taken the free FileMaker starter solutions and added FM Easy Sync. You can find them here: http://www.neocodesoftware.com/about-us/starter-sync-solutions/
  20. 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
  21. FMPro 2011 Advanced Outlook 2007 I have contacts in outlook that I want to sync with Filemaker. I'm using Productive Computing's Outlook Manipulator. Technically, the plugin is capable of push-to, pull-from, or delete-from outlook and is not actually a syncing tool. I'd like to set up some fields that will help me sync Outlook with FMPro. If Outlook as been modifed since the last sync, I want to pull from Outlook. Likewise if Filemaker has been modified while outlook's version has not, I want to push to Outlook. If both have been modified since the last sync, I want to flag the contact in FM as conflicted so I can parse it manually. I know I'll have to use timestamps, but I'm not exactly sure how I'll know that the contact has changed in Outlook. I'd be grateful for any example strategies for two-way syncing between outlook and filemaker.
  22. Free update to GoZync The newest build of GoZync offers substantially faster syncs down to your FileMaker Go files. We've been working to optimized the scripts in GoZync and have made some big improvements: many syncs are now 6x faster. And you can take advantage of this update by just changing a few scripts in GoZync. Instructions for updating your existig deployments can be found here: GoZync change log. Backstory If you're interetsed in what actually sped this up, check out our blog post on this speed bump. Like many things, we started out working on a different solution. But we broke some stuff, fell into play-mode, then got interested in the problem but unintereted in the outcome. Enjoy!
  23. 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.

  24. 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.
