360 Works Cloudmail Plugin

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Could do with some advice please, i am just playing with the cloud mail plugin, i am trying to install the plugin on the server.

I have copied both the FMX and FMX64 files to the following location, but it doesn't seem to register the plugin when I open the provided database, instead it asks me to install the plugin locally.

C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Database Server\Extensions

Is this the correct location ?

Thanks.

That is the correct installation location for server side plugins. However, the Cloudmail.fmp12 example file was developed for client side use. You will need to modify it in order to use it with a server side plugin. The prompt you are seeing is because there is a start up script that checks if the plugin is installed locally and if not shows the prompt to install. You can comment out/remove that check in the start up script so you no longer see it.

Hi Ryan,

 

Thanks for the reply, is there much modification required to achieve this ?

I can't tell you exactly what all is entailed in doing so but in general:

The scripts will need to be executed with the Perform Script on Server script step which means you will need modify any buttons that are linked to scripts that execute plugin functions. You will also need to add the registration function to all scripts that call plugin functions as registration is done on a session basis because there is no mechanism in FMS to store registration like there is in FileMaker Pro. Server side scripts also need context since they are headless. This means you will need to add to the script script steps like go to layout, go record, etc. where appropriate. 

In my opinion it will probably take just as long to modify the example file as it would to start from scratch or integrating the plugin into an existing solution. If you are just trying it out, I'd recommend demoing it in FileMaker Pro before investing the time in developing a server side process.

OK thanks for letting me know, is there a walkthrough for how to set up the AWS side of things ?

Yes, see the documentation here for generating access/secret keys, here for instructions on how to put the AWS account into production mode, and here for instructions on how to verify your email address for sending. The linked videos are labeled as for the Email plugin but the process is the same for CloudMail.

Yes, right now the CloudMail plugin will spawn an EC2 instance in the U.S. East(N.Virgina) region so all set up needs to be done there. We do have plans for a future version to make this a selectable option but for now you have to use the US East region

      Email, Scribe, and FTPeek FileMaker Plugins Have New Updated Versions with Improvements
      Learn about the new updates available and download now!
      Last week we were excited to announce that all of our plugins are compatible with the new FileMaker 19 platform!

      This week, we have additional feature enhancements and improvements specific to three of our most popular plugins: 360Works Email, Scribe, and FTPeek.

      While these are minor updates, we encourage you to update now for the best experience using each plugin.
      Download new plugin versions and check out the latest improvements using the links below!
      360Works Email Plugin (Version: 3.316) - FileMaker plugin for sending and receiving emails using IMAP, SMTP, or POP, plus adds sending SMS/Text Messages from FileMaker capabilities.
      Added "attachmentsDir" parameter to EmailReadMessages, allowing users to specify a local directory where they want attachments downloaded. Downloaded attachments are now deleted when EmailDisconnect is called. Implemented a fix for some rare DHC issues that were occurring. Improved inline attachments in emails for better downloading. Reworked the "secureconnection" parameter. SecureConnection will now set both ssl and tls to true. However these can be set individually with "ssl=true" or "tls=true". This resolves issues with certain mail servers that require tls, but reject ssl. IMAP servers better retrieve the messageId and better loading of body structure in messages. 360Works Scribe Plugin - (Version: 4.0710) - FileMaker PDF plugin, OCR plugin, Microsoft Word and Excel integration - all in one.
      Improved how keywords are being pulled from PDFs. Improved Windows file-locking, temporary files are now deleted when ScribeDocCancel is called. Better conversion of Excel files to text with merged cells. Improved Textract results downloads for better accuracy. Improved inserting images into Excel documents. 360Works FTPeek Plugin - (Version 2.305) - FileMaker plugin that can upload, download, and manipulate remote files on an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server.
      Updated FTP libraries, resolving some connection issues. Reworked the Forcetrust parameter on FTPeek_ConnectFTPS. It should now accept most invalid certificates.

      Hi,
      I'm new to 360works so I'm using the demo version of Scribe.
      I have a problem with the plugin. The plugin seems to only load one document.
      When I tried loading other document .docx it would always load the first document.
      It seems that it loads the first document and keep it as a copy in the plugin and re-use it again and again.
      Is it because I have a demo version?

        360Works MirrorSync
      MirrorSync is an elegant synchronization product that 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, WordPress and Amazon RedShift and DynamoDB. For mobile devices, users can sync the hosted file with their FMGo or Pro clients, go off network to make changes, and sync again when a connection is available. For FileMaker Servers, MirrorSync allows a database to run in multiple locations, or to integrate different databases and make sure that changes to each server are reflected in the other server. MirrorSync 6 introduced tremendous improvements for FileMaker Developers such as automatic file transfers between servers, automatic version updates between servers, safer synchronization process, better handling of large files, and easier migration.
      360Works Zulu
      Zulu is an application that keeps your calendar events in sync with FileMaker records. It is able to sync with Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, and Exchange Outlook Calendar. You can manipulate the events in your calendar, and Zulu will write these changes to FileMaker records. The opposite is also true, updates to FileMaker records will be written to your calendar's events. Zulu 4 introduced improvements specifically for business workflows such as new support for Apple Reminders within FileMaker, one-click URL calendar subscriptions and improved publishing page for user-friendliness, better event handling, and improved filtering.
        You May Also be Interested in: 360Works Scribe
      While there was not a session for Scribe, we thought it was worth mentioning because of the overwhelming positive response we received for Scribe 4, which introduced OCR to easily scan documents in FileMaker and merge or splice PDF files in container fields. Scribe has always been able to automate processing of Microsoft Office and PDF files. It continues to allow you to populate forms, insert images, highlight changes between versions of documents, manipulate Microsoft Word and Excel tables, retrieve metadata from Excel table cells, and secure PDF files.
