  1. This is about a Filemaker Server <--> MySQL sync setup. I have two fields, serialNumber and writeBackNumber, and an altogether separate primaryKey that isn't used for this part. If I create a new record on Filemaker, everything is fine. the serialNumber is auto-incremented on record creation and synced successfully. However, If I create a new record in MySQL, I can leave both serialNumber and writeBackNumber blank, but when the sync happens, Filemaker does not auto-increment the serial number and put it in the field. It looks like it's just skipping the auto-enter part altogether and leaving serialNumber blank. This seems like what's going on: Create new record in MySQL. serialNumber and writeBackNumber are blank. Click sync, 1 record gets synced to Filemaker. Record appears in Filemaker with both fields blank. Click sync, that record gets erased from MySQL but is still in Filemaker. Is this a bug? Do I need to edit the MirrorSync customization script to perform the auto-enter on hub (Filemaker) pre-sync and then copy that over to the spoke (MySQL) post-sync?
