      Title

      No Scripts are available for the specified account

      Your post

      I am using FMS 13 on widows server 2012. I want to edit a shedule. The schedule is running a filemaker script. The schedule is working but I am unable to edit the script. When I click "edit a schedule..." the pop up box appears the database is highlighted the username and password is already entered but when I click next the error message is "no scripts are available for the specified account" this is incorrect as it is running the filemaker script not allowing me to edit it

      I also tried to create a new schedule from a filemaker script and I get the same error message.

      I have updated my fms 13 to the latest 13.0 V4

      The privalege set with the security account I am trying to login to has full access with all extended privalege sets ticked

      Please assist me. what could be the issue?

      Thanks

          ive repaired the server. Ive restarted the computer, still no luck.

          I just tried enabling the guest account and i was able to get to the scripts window but it says no available scripts for this account.

          I have tried with different user accounts with different privalege sets and still same error.

            I'm not certain I understand your question. You're trying to edit a script, right? Editing a schedule is done through the Admin Console, but you can't edit a script this way. This must be done using FMP on, I assume, a client machine. Let me know if I've misunderstood what you're asking.

              Thanks Rick,Im trying to edit a schedule through the admin console in filemaker server 13.

              When selecting Create a schedule, i select filemaker script, then it asks me to select a database which i do. I put in the correct username and password and thats when the error occurs, I can't  get to the next page to select which script to run on the schedule.

                Thank you for the post.
                 
                Another user encountered a similar issue in the following thread:
                 
                 
                I was only able to replicate with unsaved security changes and the File > Manage > Security window still open.
                 
                First, close FileMaker Pro and make sure there are no security/account changes unsaved.
                 
                Second, start the process over to schedule the script.
                 
                Does this now allow a script to be scheduled for the specified account?

                  Hi TSFalcon,

                  I have managed to get it working again. For me it didn't have anything to do with unsaved security changes as I had no users connected to the file. I restarted the computer. I also tried to run a repair on the server and it still didn't help. I created a brand new file from the templates, loaded it to the server and tried to connect to the schedules using the default admin account and I continued to get the same error even with a brand new file from the templates.

                  What I think it had to do with was the version of java I had installed or a new plugin I had loaded that wasn't working correctly. After contacting the plugin developers and installing a plugin that was fully compatible, I also installed the recommended version of java version 7 update 67 and after restarting the computer I was able to use schedules again.

                  Thanks anyway for your assistant if the issue comes back I'll post here again.

                    My fix for this required the following:

                    1) Stopped FileMaker Server 13 (the FileMaker Scripting engine uses java via the fmsase.exe process)
                    2) uninstalled Java 7 update 71 (this is part of the FMS13v5 installer and was NOT part of the 13v3/13v4 installer)
                    3) installed Java 7 update 51 (This is what is installed on all the prod servers currently). 
                    4) Deleted Java: "Trace and Log Files", "Cached Applications and Applets", "Installed Applications and Applets"
                    5) Edited the Java Security "Exception Site List" to include: "http://localhost:16001" and "http://localhost:16001/admin-console"
                    6) Java Security: "Restore Security Prompts"
                    7) Started the FileMaker Server 13
                     
                    Please note though that the FMS13 admin console is terribly inconsistent even with this improvement. Currently, I can edit existing schedule's credentials (which was required in my testing), however hitting next to list the actual scripts took 1-5 times to actually function, the times it did not, the same "No Scripts are available for the specified account". I have encountered the same flaky behavior the more scripts within the hosted file; so maybe their timeouts waiting for JAVA and the FMASE to return information are too short.

                      Possible workaround if you get the "No scripts are available for the specified account" message: try clicking the "Next" button a second time.
