I'm working on a set of FM solutions that all share data links between one another. Currently, I'm working on local versions of the files but eventually the solutions will be uploaded to FM Server. Is there anyway that I can upload all of these solutions at once without breaking their links to one another? Or is it best I just build those links after the solutions are uploaded to FM Server?
we're using Rest API and we are not using FileMaker web hosting. Therefore, a landing page like «FileMaker Database Server Website» doesn’t make sense for us (looks a little bit like the Boston T in blue). Better would be to redirect a user to the company website, which resides on another server and has another subdomain.
I’m not sure where we could change that, but it may be something like:
Redirect all requests for FileMaker’s landing page, which are not for port 443 OR does NOT contain the string "/fmi/data/v1/databases/DATABASE/sessions" to "www.anotherwebsite.com:80".
Other services, like ssh, vnc, should not be affected.
Where and how would something like this be configured?
A good new year to you all,
Maybe it's just our enterprise's network but our FM clients never seem to reconnect on a loss of network (wifi, wired, VPN, anything). We always get the endless "Reconnecting..." dialog on the fat client even on the shortest of disconnects and phantom disconnects where the network link is never truly lost. Go clients seem happy as a clam to reconnect in almost any scenario though.
Anyone have a suggestion on what to look at to try and improve this?
How to upload and download a database to Server without having direct access to Administrative ConsoleBy jjjjp
I have been using FM Pro on FM Server 13 since 2014 to organize a multi-college series of workshops with a handful of colleagues at other colleges in my university. The database is essential to our operation, but the number of users other than me needing to access it at any time is quite minimal. I must upgrade Server because my colleagues have upgraded to FM Pro 16 for a different, much larger operation that runs out of a different academic unit. FM Pro 16 isn't compatible with FM Server 13. Unfortunately, I can no longer easily purchase a standalone version of Server. The new cost of running Server is going to average to about 10 times the cost over the last four years. The rep at Filemaker suggested that I share some other unit's version of FM at my university.
Is there an easy way to upload and download a database to the administrative console without needing to ask for direct access to the console? I will need to propose an arrangement that doesn't give me administrative access to other databases on the console. But I will also need to be able to replace the current version of my database at any time without having to call on somebody else with the necessary privileges. Perhaps there are scripts that do this for either Mac or Windows platforms? Or, even better, does FM Server offer a simple way of providing limited access?
