Uploaded to Server flag set too early


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.9.5

Description of the issue

If you try to upload a file to FileMaker Server using the Share > Upload to FileMaker Server... option, and that upload fails, you may still get the prompt Use Local Version/Use Hosted Version.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I'm not sure how to reproduce the failed upload to the server - I can provide the file used if necessary (1.62 GB).

In my case, the fact that the upload failed can probably be considered "normal", since the file I tried to upload was a runtime file I had received from a client, where for some reason the file extension had been removed.

Expected result

No prompt to open hosted version if the file has never been hosted.

Actual result

Prompt to open hosted version even if the file has never been hosted.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No actual error message, but the erroneous message is:

This file has previously been uploaded to FileMaker Server.
Use Local Version. Use Hosted Version.
