November DIGFM Meeting

New FileMaker Cloud Admin API

The new FileMaker Cloud Admin API allows us to automate many actions that were previously only available in the web based admin console. Use the API to check on connected clients, pause databases, and even perform some functions that are only possible from the API in FileMaker Cloud, such as creating and running script schedules. We'll demonstrate all 18 of the API functions on a live server. When done, you should be ready to start automating some actions on your own server.
