    Create Logins from a list

    barenose

      This may be a simple thing to do…

       

      I want to use a list of names and passwords as logins and passwords for a group to use to access FileMaker databases. The names and passwords are calculations that should not change, but there are enough of them that I would like to automate the process of setting the access, rather than doing each table individually.

       

      Anybody?

       

      All the best,

          My initial reaction is this sounds like a huge security risk.

           

          In order to do this for a batch of accounts, you would need to have some kind of Accounts Management System in place to create accounts via scripting. Once you have that system in place, why would you want to risk setting up accounts in advance, when they could be added individual as needed across a set of files in just a few seconds?
