    Data API For Dummies


      (The dummy being me.)


      I'm playing around with the Data API in Postman. I must be missing something very obvious, but this is what I get:

      And it never comes back. So far, I've:


      1) Enabled the API on the server.

      2) Enabled the fmrest extended priv in the target database.

      3) Removed non-alpha characters from user name, password, file name, and layout name.

      4) Tried both the IP address and the server name as the server.

      5) Tried both http:// and https:// (both with and without SSL on the server).

      6) Double-checked the method (POST) and URL.

      7) Gone over the documentation.

      8) Tried to follow the instructions in the Soliant post (FileMaker Server 16: FileMaker Data API - Soliant Blog - FM Source - Forum FileMaker).


      And it still times out. What am I missing?
