Trigger a script on the server

I would like to trigger a script in a file on the server after I upload data to the server file from the client.  It must be done without using OpenURL.


I have tried setting a script trigger in the field (server side) so when the field is updated, saved, or exited the script runs.   This does not seem to work.


I am transferring the data from the client to the server via the DataAPI, but an getting confused when reading the Filemaker 17 Data API documentation that is provided and was hoping someone may be able to explain it fairly easily (citizen developer here) or provide an example.


If there is a way to run the script without using the DataAPI, that is fine.


Thanks community!
