ServerSide Script Username...

Discussion created by StephenWonfor on Nov 23, 2012



FMS11 running on Window 7 Pro. I have a server-side script that runs and does updates nightly. I was going through some logs files and observe that Creator = Get(UserName) returns the name of the script I was calling. I pay more attention to Get(AccountName) but I was puzzled trying to sort out which user had gone into Filemaker Preferences and changed their name to "Rpt - Update Certifications".


On further thought I think this is a feature - knowing which server script is creating or modifying records is actually rather useful.


Needless to say, this is in the server setup PDF - one a page I apparently glossed over. I trust I am not the "last to know".
