      Need advice on user login capability via web interface

           Hi everybody!

            

           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

           Student ID:

           Student Password:

            

           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!!
