The FileMaker Data API is a trial feature in FileMaker Server 16 that expires on September 27, 2018. Once the trial expires, the feature will cease to operate. This feature was designated as a trial to gather more customer feedback and help improve the Data API.
Moving forward, we expect to have a licensing model for the FileMaker Data API. Our plan is to have this licensing model in place before the trial expires*. In order to continue using the FileMaker Data API, customers will need to upgrade to the latest version of the FileMaker Platform before the trial expires.
