Product and version


Filemaker 14, all versions

OS and version

OS X El Capitan

Browser and version (for WebDirect only)


MAC Pro 2013 16GB memory,  1TB SSD


When opening a file using Finder by doing an Option-Click, a prompt should appear for using a specific UserId and Password.  When doing this on a Mac Pro 2013 (darth vader garbage can edition), no prompt appears. If opening on a Mac Pro Notebook, the prompt for the userid and password appears as expected. I have only tested this on OSX El Capitan.


How to replicate

See the notes above

Workaround (if any)


Open the fmp12 file on a Mac Pro Notebook then prompt appears as expected.
