    Access with URL on different layouts


      In the past, in IWP (FM11 / 12) we had the possibility to give an URL a Password and a Username. With this information we could made a Script for:

      - Access on different layouts


      With FM 13 WebDirect it was also possible to creat a script with the information in the URL (layout and records).

      But now, with the new upgrade on 13.0.2 this was deleted.


      Has someone a good idea to come from outside with a URL and with some information in there, to be come different access to layouts?

          Afraid it doesn't work that way anymore.  You have to set up a Guest account auto logon that runs a script to get you where you want and might include relogging in.  You can't put the credentials in the URL anymore.  Its a security issue.  I miss that ability too.  It does

              I have found a solution for me. I build a seperate small Database for every LOGIN (direct access for a layout) . I build a Startscript for this small Database and include a Script from the secound Database, where i can define, with layout i want to go.

              Thank you all!
