Is there a plugin or app that documents all changes made to a database?
We have multiple developers working on the same databases and having an issue with documenting changes made in the systems.
I don't know of a plug-in that document changes, each developer should do that. There is an app to compare databases and list the differences FMDiff compares FileMaker Files, Clones, and Backups
Nice link about Commenting - Code standards
Commenting - Coding Standards - FileMaker Coding Standards
What you are looking for is an "auditing" feature I believe.
There are a number of solutions floating around. You can google search "filemaker audit trail" and get a good list of places to start. They all require a bit of work on your part to implement. Some now support server based audit logging.
Commenting / Documenting Developer changes and Auditing user changes is two different things. Both are needed.
I saw a demo of FileMaker Inspector from Beezwax that would compare two copies of a file and document the differences.
Correct, my misunderstanding. Yes, there a number of good tools out there for comparing the database structure.
No, worries. The OP was not exactly clear on what they needed to track. It is good information.
I use BaseElements which reports on the Database Design Report that FileMaker Pro Advanced generates - you can use it to compare to versions of the DDR to see what's changed between them:
BaseElements | The database for your database
Sorry if i wasn't explaining clearly.
I am looking for an app or tool to track which developer made changes to a database.
The issue i'm having is that when things break or they don't work the guilty party suddenly does not exist anymore.
So i want to be able to check who made the changes.
