One of the major selling points of the Filemaker ecosystem is its "low-code" or "ease of use" orientation.  I've read the docs on Server 17 and I gotta say:  I think the new server admin console takes a step backward in this regard.  Yes the API is cool but I don't want to have to build my own server monitoring and admin tools.  I don't want to dig around the file system for the log files and figure out how to interpret them.  I want all the help I can get in generating certificate requests. 

 

The new master/detail setup in the client is a step toward "easier" for [new] developers.  The divergence between the two products is interesting.
