Authentication Order Reversed

Authentication Order Reversed


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

Mac 10.9

Description of the issue

Accounts may be authentication from bottom to top instead of from top to bottom.  This occurs when you switch to order account by name and reverse the sorting order, and then switch back to view accounts by authentication order.  The reversed sorting order seems to stick, even though the list by authentication order does not have any sorting options, and the accounts are authenticated from bottom to top instead of from top to bottom.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Switch account list to view by account name
2. Change sort order to largest to smallest by Account name
3. Switch back to view by Authentication Order
4. Click OK and close the security window

Expected result

Accounts should be authenticated from top to bottom

Actual result

Accounts are authenticated in reverse order, from bottom to top.


Switch back to view by account name and change the sorting order, then change back to view by authentication order.
