Has anyone explored how to integrate FM solutions with the new iOS 11 Files app. Like Via script, insert and export container content to a folder in a cloud storage accessed with Files app ?
I don't thing there is any integration with the Files App as such, its more integrating with app visible within the files app, like iCloud Drive, Dropbox etc.
There are solutions out there to post files to DropBox using API's using the new cURL function in FileMaker 16.
An example of this can be found here: FileMaker 16 Tutorial - Uploading files to Dropbox - YouTube
I do hope they update FileMaker Go 16 to allow drag and drop between Go and the Files App along with other apps, that would help allot getting files in and out of Go manually
The new ios 11 Files system really isn't new to FMGo which already had something similar built-in to it: In FMGo select device icon, then select the download icon, then select location. As Orlando stated you have to use the API for the cloud service you wish to integrate.
Thanks, it would be nice that one should not have to use API's and the cURL function to export and import files to "local" cloud storage accounts. By local, meaning the cloud storage areas the user owns and is logged on to in the Files app in iOS. Currently, it is not possible to obtain a link to a folder in the cloud storage accessible by the Files app to export and import from using a script. Or being able to set up an external storage folder to any cloud storage the user owns and is logged on to in the Files app in iOS.

It is currently possible to access by script using the API. That's what the API is for. It sends your credentials to the cloud storage, then it let you browse, upload, or download from the service. It would be a big security risk for icloud, dropbox, google drive and whatever other service to allow software to access it without your permission.
