    Reauthentication FM Pro



      Reauthentication FM Pro


           Is there any way to force a user to re-authenticate after they are logged in with FM Pro 13 when modifying certain fields?

           A lot of the work stations that run File Maker are used by multiple people (on the shop floor).  I'm trying to eliminate the possibility of someone sitting down in front of a computer with file maker already running and starting to make changes under someone else's login.

           We are using this database for aircraft maintenance, and it is critical for us to document WHO makes changes to certain fields in the database.  I'm not looking to prevent anything malicious, its just very important that we know who made changes.

               You could use a script with show custom dialog to open a small dialog with an input field for entering a password to gain access to certain features.

               You can also use the re-log in script to both log the user in with higher privileges and then also to log them back out again after the field edits have been completed.
