Hi everyone, i'm a newest user with MirrorSync.
I could install MirrorSync without problems and get records in my local database, but i had a problem when i try to get records that has the first letter of primary key starts with "0", MirrorSync show the message:
"Error from server: java.sql.SQLException: FileMaker numeric primary keys must not begin with a 0. Either remove the zero padding, or switch the primary key field and all related foreign keys to text. First error: 01234567-DACC-8DE7-58DD-2ASSDE474DCA from table TableName"
The field its auto-generate UUID of type text.
I try to find a way modified the script MirrorSync, but i dont know how to control this in the script, any solution for this? Thanks!
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.
