Summary

Filemaker Go randomly ignores "Log in using" credentials stored in File Options

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

1.2.4

Operating system version

OS 5.0.1

Description of the issue

Set Log in using ID & Password in a Filemaker DB and post the file to Filemaker Go on iPad.  When initially launching the file, the "Log in using..." settings are honoured.  However, if user switches to another app and returns later, not having closed the file, or having closed the file and re-opened it using a FMPSCript:// URI, user will occasionally be prompted to enter Authentication Credentials for the file, despite "Log In Using" settings.  Hitting "Cancel" on the Authentication dialog proceeds to open the file using the "Log In Using" settings.

Steps to reproduce the problem

See above.

Expected result

User should never be prompted for credentials when "Log In Using" settings are set.

Actual result

User is occasionally, though not always, prompted for credentials when "Log In Using" settings are set.
