    Http requests from scheduled script

    bricmgt

      Hello,

      I've created a script that sends a GET request to a webserver, then parses the response and fills in a field in FMP 12. I'm doing this using the webviewer, the script looks like this:

       

      Go to Layout[]

      Set Webviewer []

      Pause[]

      Set Variable [$$response; Value:GetLayoutObjectAttribute ("GetResponse"; "content"]

      Go to Layout["Response" (Response)]

      New Record/ Request

      Insert Calculated Result [ parsed response]]

       

      This works great on a computer, the issue I'm having is I'd like to have this be a scheduled script running on Filemaker Server, the Set Webviewer command is not available on that platform. Are there some other options? I was starting to head down the custom functions path, but have not done one before. Maybe this is a good way to learn?

       

      Any suggestions would be great,

      Brian
