Most of the time, we need to execute some script to do tasks like posting invoices and bills to GeneralLedger etc. at the end of day as automated processes by FileMaker Server.
FileMakerPro10 Advanced, includes a new feature for checking the SERVER compatible script steps in the same manner as we are checking for web publishing compatibility.
In script maker, now it provides an another new option ‘Server’ for check SERVER compatible script steps in script those we want to run from FileMaker Server on a scheduled time set by FileMaker Server administrator.
To check whether a script step is compatible or not and after schedule that script in FileMaker Server using the below
1. In Edit Script window, select Server from the Show compatibility option. Dimmed script steps are not compatible.
Based on this you can write specific piece of code as per your requirement and host the same in FileMaker Server.
2. If by mistake any script step was left that are not supported, then it will halt the script execution. For avoid this need to turn Off the Allow User Abortscript step at the top of that script.
3. In FileMaker Server click on Create a FileMaker script schedule for each new schedule against Schedules
