FMGo-saving a password?

Question asked by bhagara on Jan 16, 2015

When an iPad FMGo user opens a database from the Filemaker Server, they have to enter their userid and password every time.  Is there a way of negating the need for that?

 

I know the Extended Privilege set allows for the user to not have to RE-login, but that's after they've already logged in once... yes?

 

I thought about making a locally stored file on the iPad and giving it a script or buttons to open the file that's served... using the 'relogin' script step to get into the file with no fuss at all.

 

If we assume that physical access to the iPad is restricted and a passcode is required to access the iPad and it's programs... is the only way to do what I'm thinking?

 

ok... or a webpage with a URL that would get you into the file.... but I'm not going to publish credentials in a webpage, obviously.

 

Much thanks and points to the person with the best answer.
