login in to ref file pops up
When I reconnect to FMG a dialog box 'opening file' - Login to "_gfx" pops up asking the user to log in to this related file - EVEN though the file is set to auto open as admin -
Thank you for your post.
You said:> When I reconnect to FMG
This implies that you left FileMaker Go, and then tried to reconnect (not relaunch). If so, then it will try to reconnect to any open files at the place where you left the files. It won't try to auto-open the file, so it will ask you for the username and password, unless you have fmrestorelogin extended privilege active.
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.
