I want to be able to get specific users to run FileMaker schedules. Have set up a a group allocated required rights, schedules etc.


Specifically I want them to be able close all files and run a  schedule with system level script to restart the FM Server.


Closing all files is fine.


Issue is they cannot see schedules with system level scripts.


They can only see schedules running FileMaker scripts or backups


I have tested over LAN and on server.


Is there a restriction on running system level scripts from Groups. May be documented but cannot find.

The issue is the ability to run system level scripts from a Group.


I am logged in as the user on the FM Server with full Admin rights.


Log in to FM Console as Admin and you see the schedules with system level scripts.


Log in as a Group user and you don't see the system level scripts.


I guess I am looking for a definitive answer to the question - "Can a user logging into to a defined group on the FileMaker Server see and run a schedule contains a system level script".


I have confirmed they can add a system level script to a schedule, but once saved it isn't visible.



So is this a bug or standard behaviour?
