Security. Server Console : duplicating a script schedule


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

Mac OS X

Description of the issue

This could be seen as a security issue :
while duplicating a schedule that performs a FileMaker Script, the account name and password are duplicated as well, allowing any administrator that does not have a full access account to the file to have any script performed by the server.

Steps to reproduce the problem

create a schedule that perfoms a script (with a valid account/password)
duplicate the schedule.
In the new schedule, change the called script.
You don't have to re-type the password.

Expected result

The password should not be duplicated, although I admit it's convenient in most cases.

Actual result

The password is duplicated with the schedule.
