Summary

Global variables lost in FileMaker Go

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

13.0.5

Description of the issue

In a large FM Go solution, after users are in the solution for a while, all of the $$variables will be lost. This causes security problems, and other major issues. The only fix is for the user to exit the application, quit FileMaker Go, and re-login.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Use application. It is random and happens to ~10% of users on just one solution

Expected result

Expect it would maintain global variables, just as FileMaker Pro does

Actual result

variables

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

none

Configuration information

4th Generation iPad (model just before the Air) with 16GB of storage.

Bug happens for all ipads, all users. Random.

Workaround

Quit, and restart.
