A user administration for FileMaker

User Accounts 2 is a FileMaker module which manages FileMaker user accounts via a user table. A few years ago, we already developed another module for this task. However, the new User Accounts 2 module is simpler and more flexible.

  • FileMaker-based user management
  • Management via a user table
  • Each user gets their own FileMaker account
  • The module synchronizes table and FileMaker accounts
  • Complete login strategy
  • Structured as a FileMaker module for easy integration
  • No support for expiring passwords (for this there is FM Starter 2)

The following animated GIF shows how a new account is created. The account also appears properly in the FileMaker security settings.

Implementation

The module has step-by-step instructions in the script directory. This means that the module can be quickly integrated into your solution.

The better version is part of FM Starter

This is a free module. There is no support and no further development. Use it as a start for your own projects. However, there is a better version, which is also further developed and supported. The better UserAccounts is part of FM Starter, our startup file for new FileMaker projects.
