I know how to manually install plugins on FileMaker Server 13 but I am struggling to find clear and concise step-by-step instructions that explain how to install server plugins using the new scripted install method. The official FileMaker Server 13 documentation is extremely lacking in details. It explains how to enable the feature to allow plugins to run on the server but where are the instructions for installing them via a script?

 

Does anyone have a good resource for learning how to do this?

 

Also...where do you enter the license information for server plugins?

 

Thanks.

It's dead simple, which is probably why there is not a lot of documentation.  It's exactly the same as using the script step to install on the client, except that you need to make sure the script actually runs on server.

 

On FMS, check the two check boxes for "allow use of" and "allow solutions to install"

 

Then in your solution, either do a PSoS call to the server with a script that uses the "install plugin" script step, or set up a server-side schedule for a script that does the same.
