A universal password

Our current setup is FileMaker Pro 5 on Classic. I have two database files. One requires that I use Web Security database to manage users who wish to access it through the web. The other file needs to be configured so that anyone can see it and browse it. Is there a way to embed a password in a form so that the user is not prompted to enter one from either the db file's settings or the Web Security database?

Thanks!

Hi, JB! Perhaps wiser FMP eyes will see what I'm missing but I don't know of a way to embed a password to repress the FMP login/password prompt. However, it only pops up if you perform a restricted action. If you set both db's in Web Security Database with All Users can browse, you won't need to embed a password. Or at least set the "other" one for anyone to be browsed by All Users (no password) and the popup will only happen if someone tries to access info in the other db. Once logged in, users can access either freely.

You can, of course, look into using tokens to check validity, but I don't know of a way to bypass the login prompt by auto-entering the data. Maybe someone else will offer something better, though.

Good luck!

Steve's way is the proper way to do security. You cannot set Web Security only for some hosted databases.

But if you allow full access for single database, security is de facto disabled for that database.

Embedding passwords is nice technique in Lasso Inlines. Since WC doesn't have much security by itself even with Web Security if you need tight security you must use "exact search" or Lasso.
