Opening shared databases remotely using a URL: password Issue
Operating system version
OS X (10.9.4)
Description of the issue
When using the fmp internet protocol to call a script within a file while providing the following:
- user name
- host address
- file name
- script name
- script parameter
If the password has a question mark "?" as one of its characters, it is impossible for the application to interpret the password correctly, regardless of if the password is encoded in the url (using %3F).
Steps to reproduce the problem
Host a file with a user and a script. Make sure the user's password includes a question mark "?". The position of the question mark in the password seems irrelevant.
Attempt calling a script from within a filemaker file authenticated under a different user account, using openURL as part of a script. The URL should match what is documented in the help:
The file opens without asking for credentials and the called script is performed before returning control over to the calling script.
The application prompts the user for credentials since the ones provided do not allow the user to connect.
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
None. Login dialog appears.
No known workaround were identified.
