There is basically no limit of accounts, but there is a limit of same time concurrent connections using FileMaker Go or FileMaker WebDirect.
Have each client log in whenever they want looking at just there orders will make it very hard for your to handle so that they do not see other clients orders.
With new FileMaker Server 16 you can use OAuth to access your solution from either Amazon, Google or Microsoft. Then you do not need all accounts in your database
Thank you Johan!
I’ll check out using OAuth- sounds like the way to go.
OAuth accounts still need to have an account created in the FM file. This cannot be scripted and must be done manually. Please see OAuth Account Management via Script and vote for this if you feel it would be useful to you.
You can use Get(UserCount) to get the total number of users currently logged in. So far as I know there is no function to get the licensed connection limit. FM15+ using user connections needs to have the connection assigned to specific users and not allowed to distribute one account to an client company for all to use as needed.
Record visibility is not extremely easy, but it is possible.
Oh – ok – thanks! Good to know. I voted
