Specifying a User Account to Run System-level Scripts with FileMaker Server

Can system-level scripts be run under a specific user account?

In the Schedule Assistant, you can specify a user account to run system-level scripts.

A User Account is a FileMaker Server External User Account. It can be a Local Account on your computer or a Network Account.

Selecting a system-level script to run

In this Schedule Assistant step, you specify the system-level script to run, optional script parameters, and the user account to use to run the script.

Put system-level script files in the Scripts folder before starting the Schedule assistant:

  • Windows (32-bit): [drive]:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Scripts\
  • Windows (64-bit): [drive]:\Program Files (x86)\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Scripts\
  • Mac OS: /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Scripts/

Note  (Windows only) If FileMaker Server is installed in a non-default location, the beginning portion of the default path shown above, \Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server (Windows 32-bit) or \Program Files (x86 \FileMaker\FileMaker Server (Windows 64-bit), is replaced with the path that was specified during installation. For example: \My_Path\Data\Scripts\

If you do not see the script you want, click Cancel to exit the Schedule assistant, copy the script to the Scripts folder on the FileMaker Server computer, and run the Schedule assistant again.
