Summary

GetFromURL and GetLayoutObjectAttribute via a proxy

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12 v3.0

Operating system version

Mac / Win 7

Description of the issue

I have a solution which must run via a internet-proxy. Those secured web-sites prompt a authentification-certificat.

To get content from those websites, either the new 'GetFromUrl'- as well as the 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute (… / "content") -'Function can be used.
Anyhow, 'GetFromURL' fails on Mac-OS and 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute' fails on Win 7.

Steps to reproduce the problem

There are some confident proxy-settings and security certificates involved. I couldn't provide to FMI!

Just wanna know if some similarly reports have been addressed before.

Expected result

Both functions working on both OS'.

Actual result

win 7: 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute' fails
mac: 'GetFromURL' fails

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

none

Workaround

if ("Win OS";  'GetFromURL (…)' ; 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute (… / "content") )
