Guess I have been away for a while. Not fully back though because I am not really engaged with computer tech stuff at the moment. However, I really stumbled across a problem earlier today while going through my email logs. I observed that a server script I had set up has not been attaching the Pdf file report as supposed to. It only delivers the message while leaving out the file attachment. I did test the script when I added it but what I did not test was the result when run by the server.
Allow user Abort [Off]
Commit Records/Requests [No dialog]
Set Variable [$FileName;Value:"Summary"&".pdf"]
Set Variable [$PDFPath;Value:Get(TemporaryPath) &".pdf"]
Go to Layout ["Summary_Layout]
Perform Script ["Print_Page_Setup"]
Save Records as PDF [Restore;No dialog;"$PDFPath";Current record]
Send Mail [Send via SMTP Server;No dialog]
As at the time of my writing the script, I was not observant about server-side scripts. I did go back just recently to observe that the "Save Records as PDF" script step is not server compatible.
Please, is there any work around on this? Much help is appreciated.

Since FileMaker 16 now exports a plugin "source" code with the DDR (even if the plugin is not present) for plugin script steps, it would be helpful to have a way to identify a plugin based upon this "source" code. It would be immensely helpful if developers could provide this information.
For reference the "source" code that I'm talking about is "FMmp" in the sample plugin source code.
In the interest of gathering this information, I whipped up a Google Form for data collection. To reduce misuse, this form is entry-only. Once created, there is no way to edit a record. If the information changes over time (say, you would like users to go to a different URL), just make a new record. I can't speak for everyone else, but FMPerception will likely be using the last record available for each source code.
At some later date, this may be expanded into a larger registry, but for now I'd just like to get some data. Follow this link to fill out the form:
FileMaker Plugin Registry Form
I don't have any interest in being the only person with access to this information, so if you would like to view the results, feel free to click here.
Plugin Registry - Google Sheets
If there is some other registry, just point me to it, and I'll apologize for the distraction.
Thank you very much.
P.S. Here's an example of how it looks when FMPerception knows about your plugin:
