Identifying your various computers

Identifying your various computers


Someone asked how to identify the various computers and IOS devices connecting to his database. Filemaker 12 now makes that easy with Get(persistentid). 

I tested to verify that it was identifying the computer/device rather than a network connection like Get(SystemNIC) and my test, while not scientific per set, indicates that it is indeed a unique identifier for the Touch I was using.

So you can create a table on your server or home computer that you can log into with your IOS devices or other computers and create one record for each with what ever other info you want to add and use that get(persistentid) field for relationships in other files and tables.

Hope this helps...
