      Modifying Account Password through Layout password field

      Post

      I am trying to create a layout that allows a user to create a password through a layout password field.  How do you 'connect' this layout password field to the native filemaker Account/Password?

       

      Thanks,

      James

          You'd use a script. If you open manage scripts, start a new script and check the steps available under the "accounts" category, you'll find steps for managing accounts. It's often useful to use global storage for your layout field and your script should be set to run with "full access privileges" if you want to enable users who have not opened the password with a full access password to be able to use this script to update their account info.
