Is it possible to create an account that authenticates by External Server with a script? The Add Account script step doesn't seem to give you that option. This would be helpful, when giving updates.
No, the whole purpose of using external accounts is to take account management out of FM... if you really want to do it you can use OS-level scripting to create the account and fire that from a script
I agree, but you have to have the external server account in the database to do that. Rather than have to create it manually every time I give an update, I was hoping to have it created as part of the update process. What OS-Level scripting are you referring to (most clients are Windows Server 2008 R2)?
Are you talking about creating a user account in the OS, or creating the matching group name in FM? If the latter; then no it can not be done. Creating user accounts in the OS can be done with OS-level scripting.
Creating the account in Filemaker for External Authentication. I wonder why Filemaker does not allow that to be done via a script?
