Passing field values as a parameter between FMP files on the server

We are using FileMaker Server


We have file-a and file-b.


In file-a we have a field named: file-a::name. We also have a script in file-a named call-file-b-script.


In file-b we have a script named file-b-script.


In call-file-b-script we have the script step: Perfomr Script ["file-b-script" from file: "file-b"; Parameter: file-a::name]


The problem: When the script is called from a client connected to the server it passes the value correctly but when it is called from the server as a schedule it passes an empty string.


Note: Both files have no password and use the same user. file-a has file-b as an external data source.


What is the difference between the client and the server execution in this situation and what should we do differntly on the server to make this work.
