    When returning information from a fmsadmin call, it would be nice to have the option to return it formatted as json for parsing.  For example, when you execute:

     

    fmsadmin list clients -s

     

    You get a fixed formatted text array. 

     

    Maybe you could have something like:

     

    fmsadmin list clients -s -json

     

    And this would return the data formatted as json. 

     

    Formatting as json is much easier for parsing in FileMaker as well as other services, especially now that FileMaker Pro 16 natively has json functions built in. 

     

    Basically all fmsadmin returned data as well as warnings should have an option to return them as json for further processing.
