I've read a couple of threads similar to this, but still hitting roadblocks.

 

Goals:

1) If WebDirect, enter database with no login screen

2) If FMP client (this implies internal users), require usual login

...since there are 2 possible audiences/user groups, I didn't think it best to try "File Options > Open > Login Using" specifying a hard-coded account. 
...Even when I DO try the "File Options > Open > Login Using" a hard-coded account, I get a message saying my access privileges don't allow that action (I am the admin with [Full Access] permissions, so this is a head-scratcher)...

 

Steps taken so far:

1) "webuser" account/pw created (with create/edit privileges only)

2) "OnFirstWindowOpen" script trigger set using File Options, which commands "If [Get(SystemPlatform)=4], use 'webuser' account creds and go to screen1"

 

Result so far: Webdirect users still being directed to the login screen.
