FileMaker Admin API tool for FileMaker Server 17 (Tutorial, Training)

    So, we're really excited to release this free product and free course. As I mention in the video, we "had to build this" because there is no longer a built-in way to allow our FileMaker 17 (or higher) hosting customers to perform light maintenance (open and close database files, manage schedules and send messages) while protecting the server master admin credentials. Taking advantage of the new FileMaker Admin API, we're able to provide some functionality for them.

    The effort to build a feature-rich tool that talks directly to the FileMaker Server 17 engine is not exactly trivial, but once you get the hang of it, it's really not that hard either and that's where this course and tool come in handy to jump-start those who are ready to take the plunge. The link to the free course and the free accompanying FileMaker file can be found in the description above.
