Hi All,

 

I have a FM database that has a generic login. The system is used by ipad users mostly, and accessed from FilemakerGO without a prompt for user login. There is one layout on there that everyone should be able to access and one that should be security limited.

 

Is it possible to limit access to layouts by logged in user? If so can I flash up the login box from a button click and check that the credentials entered have the relevant permissions to view that layout?

 

Many thanks

It's not really layouts that you want to secure, but rather records in certain tables. FM's Security is the method to use, but for that you will need some users to enter credentials. That is the only way that the solution would be able to identity the user.

So, given that certain users do have credentials associated with a privilege set, you could have a button that requires the user to Relogin before he can navigate to the secure "layout".
