Need advice on user login capability via web interface
I have a FM database (version 9) that I created for a school-- it manages the students' records.
Currently, only the teachers and admins have access to it.
The plan is to create a 'front-end' to allow access to student records for the parents.
So here's out the flow would look like:
Local Network - Database - IWP -> Internet
My question-- for 200+ students, if I were to use Filemaker's built-in security, that would require a LOT of managing of users.
Instead, I would like to create a strong password for each student and then give each parent that password.
So, when they access the IWP from their home browser, it would pop up with
And once they type in their password, it'll go to that specific record only and only allow edits to that record.
Not sure how to do the above-- has anyone had any experience doing this? And if so- any example databases?
thank you so much!!
