    Deauthorize / Authorize a solution

    jacksrmd

      Summary

      Deauthorize / Authorize a solution

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.0v4

      Operating system version

      Windows

      Description of the issue

      I have three solutions that I have created a conundrum that I need some help fixing.

      1st solution:  EAP

      2a solution: SAP  (SAP FileMaker solution saved on local drive)

      2b solution:  SAP (SAP FileMaker solution on the server)

      Over 2 months ago, in early development I authorized EAP to access 2a because I didn't have access to 2b at the time.

      Once I upload the completed version of EAP onto the server,

      1.  I can't Authorize 2b, because it says EAP is already authorized even though it's not in the MANAGE SECURITY - FILE ACCESS of 2b.

      2.  Everytime I open EAP on the server, it says it's not Authorized and will only allow a one-time authorization.

      3.  I can't Deauthorize 2a from EAP because it's not listed within MANAGE SECURITY - FILE ACCESS.

      End Goal:  I need 2b to Authorize EAP and have it listed within MANAGE SECURITY - FILE ACCESS of 2b

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1.  Create 3 solutions, Solution A, Solution B, Solution C.
          Solution B and C MUST HAVE THE SAME NAME.

      2.  Upload Solution C to the server

      3.  Have Solution B authorize Solution A within MANAGE SECURITY - FILE ACCESS; place check on REQUIRE FULL ACCESS PRIVILEDGES TO USE REFERENCES TO THIS FILE

      4.  Upload Solution A to the server

      5.  Open Solution C from the server

      6.  Attempt to authorize Solution A

      Expected result

      Solution C from the server would authorize A since B and C have the same name.

      Actual result

      Solution C says A is already authorized to open it

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      "EAP.fmp12" is already authorized to open the protected file "SAP_Download.fmp12"
