Best practice for SMTP credentials needed by FileMaker?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to rethink how I can safely store/access user credentials needed to send mail via SMTP from FileMaker. In solutions I've built prior to the current one I've stored them in a table and used FM's security features to limit access to them. I'm curious if anyone's come up with a better way of dealing with credentials that are required by services called by FileMaker. If so, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Use an API and let the user authenticate so that you don't have to store credentials.  See https://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/microsoft-graph-api-filemaker-one/

Or if you are on AWS, let the AWS instance check out credentials from the AWS key store and push into FM so that you don't have to store credentials at all.

Hi Wim,

These are exactly what I was looking for. 

Thanks!
