Asking for PW when shifting from one app to another
How can I make FM Go stop asking for a password every time I hit the home button or shift from one app to another in iPad?
Thank you for your post.
The following is from page 10 of the FileMaker Go Tech Brief at: http://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-go/docs/techbrief_filemaker_go_121_en.pdf
FileMaker Go supports the “fmrestorelogin” extended privilege. To take advantage of this extended privilege, you must create a new extended privilege using “fmrestorelogin” (no quotes) as the specific keyword.
FileMaker Go, by default, will not save the user name and password of a file that is terminated. The next time FileMaker Go is launched, it will prompt the user for their credentials and attempt to restore the user’s prior session, except in the following cases:
The “fmrestorelogin” extended privilege works with Auto-Restore Login application setting (Home screen > Settings Menu) in FileMaker Go. If the setting is turned off, a user will always be prompted for their credentials.
If FileMaker Go is closed as a result of a user pressing the Home button or an incoming call, multi-file solutions will not prompt the user for credentials for every file when “awoken.” FileMaker Go simply prompts a user for credentials when opening the first file. As long as the other files in the solution contain the same account and password, no additional credentials prompt will be displayed.
Once you have fmrestorelogin added, you should not be asked for a password each time you return to FileMaker Go from another application.
Let me know if you need additional clarification.
