I renewed my developer license last week. I have not been able to access the benefits section to find my license for the server..
Good point. Where is it on this new interface?
Click News at the top of the page, then to the right you will see the link to FDS. Your FMS license key and download link will be email to you, which you should have already received. I suggest calling TS to get them to email it to you again.
It is now managed and delivered the same way the rest of the FM licensing is through the FM Store.
Here is a post with the email contact info for FDS/FBA:
Notice: Community Changes-Language, FBA & FDS
Thanks for reposting this. I'll follow it up, as I was unaware of the change to process and so have lost access to my licence keys.
You might check your email. I got two emails for the 16.0.2 maintenance release. One for FDS and one for regular licensing.
It is explained here. I vaguely remember getting an email about this also, but am less confident on that one.
An improved FileMaker Community is coming September 14!
Thank you for your help bigtom. I did trawl back through emails from FM and eventually found the one that advised of this, back in May. As it mainly concerned the release of FM16 I did not register the significance of this sentence: ""
In the meantime I emailed FM and they have responded by resending my FMS development licence, so all is OK now (except I no longer have a list of earlier licence keys, but that's probably not an issue now).
Wrote them again. They archived you previous FDS keys as well. At least they said they did.
i have the same issue , what email did you used , please
If you need help send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will respond to assist you on the FDS.
