Product and version: FileMaker Pro 16.0.3.302)

OS and version: Mac OS X Sierra 10.12.6

Hardware: Macbook Pro 13-inch 2016

Description: Receive message, "Your access privileges do not allow you to perform this action," after clicking Specify for the Specify Import Order.

How to replicate: Create a script. Put an Import Records script step into it. Choose Specify Data Source, select XML Data. Select HTTP Request and insert a URL (does not need to be valid), click OK. Choose Specify Import Order, receive message saying, "Your access privileges do not allow you to perform this action."

Workaround (if any): Using Insert From URL to download the XML source and putting it into a container field. Then use Export Field Contents to create an XML file. Then use Import Records from the XML file instead of directly from the URL.

 

I feel it is important to note that manually importing from my XML source works perfectly, it just doesn't work as part of a script.
