Hi, Can you put the user name and PW in the Database URL to access it.
It's not generally a good idea to pass this information in a URL. IE doesn't even support it anymore due to malicious use and phishing (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834489), but I think it may still work in OS X.
If you still need this functionality, you might consider pointing your URL to an opener file that has the user/pass you want set to auto open, then run a script to open your intended target. You have much more control then and don't expose your authentication in URLs. Would that work?
Hi, I mean the HTML admin console. I cant use a file for that can i?
Ah, then no, not for form based authentication. You might be able to have your browser's auto fill settings store it for you.
I did. I wanted to have a FM file that has my login so i can see all my servers in the web viewer.
Web viewer that has URL as 'https://yourserver:16000/admin-console'
and script to login is
Set Web Viewer 'Goto URL'
; [ "username" ; username ]
; [ "password" ; password ]
But, where is this better than browser auto-fill ?
Is there a mac version of the java? I made a database for myself and I want to store the info in Filemaker.
There is a waty to control WEB viewer by applescript, but
I can't test since WEB viewer on mac can't open the URL when the server name doesn’t match the certificate.
Use safari with Applescript ?
