    Remaining issue in FileMaker Server 13.0v2 with Perform Script on Server in multi-file solutions

    CamelCase

      Summary

      Remaining issue in FileMaker Server 13.0v2 with Perform Script on Server in multi-file solutions

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      FileMaker Server 13.0v2

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.9.3, OS X 10.8.5

      Description of the issue

      When running a script with Perform Script on Server from a file that uses another FileMaker file as an external data sources, but where that external data source has not (yet) been "touched" by the FileMaker Pro user, the script performed on server is apparently not able to open the second file on its own. The script fails and an error code 100 "File is missing" is created in the server logs.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      See above.

      Expected result

      Script performed on server can access any files that the account the script is performed with have access to.

      Actual result

      The script fails and an error code 100 "File is missing" is created in the server logs.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Schedule "MyScriptName - Developer 9" scripting error (100) at "MyFileName : MyScriptName : Set Field".

      Workaround

      Anything that will "touch" the second FileMaker file before the script is performed on server seems to do the trick. Right now I'm using a "go to layout" right now, but I suspect any action that directly references the second file will do the trick.
