Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Thank you for the post and I apologize for the delayed response.
1. When a new database file is created in FileMaker Pro 12, by default, neither the Pro/Go FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege nor the Instant Web Publishing (fmiwp) privilege will be enabled.
2. During the upload to the FileMaker Server if FileMaker Network Sharing was previously turned ON within the database file, then the Pro/Go FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege remains enabled.
3. During the upload to the FileMaker Server if FileMaker Instant Web Publishing was previously turned on for the file, then the Instant Web Publishing (fmiwp) remains enabled, but the Pro/Go FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege remains disabled.
4. Lastly, during the upload if neither the Pro/Go FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege nor the Instant Web Publishing (fmiwp) were previously enabled and the file is uploaded to FileMaker Server, then by default the FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege will be enabled.
The fourth one is because the file being uploaded would otherwise have no access privilege and hence no access. In the screenshot provided, I noticed that BestWorkFlows.fmp12 and the FMP12Test.fmp12 file do not have the FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege enabled. The dots indicate the file's access privileges. See the screenshot below.
The uploaded files in the example given likely fall under option #3 above. For additional information see FileMaker's help About accounts, privilege sets, and extended privileges.
Let me see if I can paraphrase / restate your answer, so that I understand correctly, as what I'm getting still seems to fall outside of point 3.
From the last to the first:
... you enable the Instant Web Publishing feature, then determine which user accounts can access each database from a web browser.
To enable Instant Web Publishing:
1. Open the database.
2. Choose File menu > Sharing > Instant Web Publishing to open the Instant Web Publishing dialog box and enable Instant Web Publishing.
Thank you for the reply.
Is the goal to upload the file with both privileges enabled? Are both privileges enabled for at least one account?
1. File > New Database
2. File > Manage > Security
3. Highlight "Admin"
4. Click "Edit…"
5. Click "Edit…" by the "[Full Access]" privilege set
6. Check the box to enable "Access via Instant Web Publishing (fmiwp)"
7. Check the box to enable "Access via FileMaker Network (fmapp)"
8. Click OK. Click OK. Click OK.
9. If prompted to authenticate, then "Allow" and enter the Admin's credentials.
10. Upload the file to FileMaker Server 12 or FileMaker Server 12 Advanced.
Both privileges now have the dot indicating access in the Admin Console.
Please let me know if I misinterpreted the end goal, or if any of the above steps need further clarification.
That clarifies it, thank you. Yes, needed access to both, but I had been attempting to do each manually via the Sharing sub-menu under File based on what the IWP Guide stated to do.
On point 4 of your initial reply (if neither fmapp or fmiwp are enabled before and db file is uploaded to FMS/A 12) which user is being activated upon upload to the Server, in order to automatically turn on the Go/Pro (fmapp) functionality? Admin?
Thank you for the reply.
Yes. If active, then the full access account which by default is named "Admin" will be granted the FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege set when uploaded to the FileMaker Server. Any password specified will still be required to gain access to the file.
If the original Admin account is disabled and another full access account is active, then both full access accounts will be granted the FileMaker Network Sharing (fmapp) privilege; however, the first account will still not be able to be used since access to the account is disabled.
