Thank you for your post!
The Java 6 being required is usually due to a Plug-in. FileMaker Pro 15 itself does not require Java 6. It could be that the Plug-Ins are also incompatible with FileMaker Pro 15. You might remove them or see if the developer has updated versions of the Plug-In for FileMaker Pro 15. I would also try to reinstall FileMaker Pro 15. Let me know if this resolves the Username and Password fields being greyed out. I will look at this further in the mean time.

Almost certainly ScriptMaster....
lot of thanks,
I'd already removed scriptmaster a day later because I figured out that It doesn't fit to my needs.
I was irritated because FileMaker refused to launch.
I would expect to get a message that a specific plugin can't be used because of it's special needs.
This thread was really helpful. I received the generic "need to install Java SE 6" message, after setting up a new MBP with El Capitan. I was about to install the legacy Java, when I stumbled upon this forum. I removed all of my plugins from the extension(s) folder, and voila! No more Java requirements.
I will eventually install the old Java, as I do use ScriptMaster from time-to-time. But Filemaker Inc. (or 360works?) should really make that dialog more specific.
