FileMaker 12 XML query - login issue?

Question asked by pthomas on May 21, 2013

We are in the process of upgrading to FileMaker 12 and have run into an issue with our testing.

 

In our current solution we are using XML queries to update data in FileMaker from our website (I personally don't know a lot about how this all works as it was set up before my time).

 

The URL that works in our current FileMaker 11 solution is:

 

http://username:password@IPAddress/fmi/xml/FMPXMLLAYOUT.xml?-db=databaseName.fp7&-lay=New+Bookings&-max=50&-view

 

 

However, when we try this against our upgraded test database having only changed the extension:

 

http://username:password@IPAddress/fmi/xml/FMPXMLLAYOUT.xml?-db=databaseName.fmp12&-lay=New+Bookings&-max=50&-view

 

We are getting the following error:

 

FX: cURL could not retrieve Post data in RetrieveFM7Data(). A bad URL is the most likely reason.FileMaker1 Object

 

If I try to manually open the URL in my browser I also get an error, however if I remove the "username:password@" portion the URL works, but I am prompted for login details.

 

As I mentioned, this is all new to me so is anyone able to point me in the right direction?

 

Cheers,

 

Paul.
