Run AppleScript from FileMaker Go 17

I would like to be able to launch an AppleScript on my Mac from FileMaker Go 17. My solution is built in FMP Advanced 17 and it imports a CSV file that the AppleScript downloads. I understand that I can not run an AppleScript from FMP Go, I also can't Perform Script on Server or Send an Event. At least nothing worked in any way that I've tried.

 

I just need a button in Go that I can push that kicks off this AppleScript on my Mac. I don't need FileMaker to do anything other than that and I'm open to what on my Mac would run it... Automator, AppleScript Editor, Terminal. Is there a solution to this problem other than scheduling that AppleScript and not being able to run it on demand?

 

Thanks everyone!
