Filemaker Go19

New Contributor

Hello everyone,

I am just wondering if there is a script out there for iOS which I can roll out in the app config, which will auto fill the "hostname" for filemaker go 19?

This would be a massive help if there is due to having over 1.7k devices on site.

Or if anyone knows where i can get the plist config for filemaker go 19

I have gone to the location for it, but cant seem to find it!


Any help would be great

Not sure what your goal is, but...

If you are trying to connect to a specific FileMaker file (or an opener file) from FileMaker Go on iOS, you can place a Web Clip directly on iOS desktop or Dock. The Web Clip will open a hosted (or local) FileMaker file.

Check out Configuration Profiles > Web Clips. First create your Webclip using the path to your file, then (if you want) set it as an IOS Dock icon in Configuration Profiles > Home Screen Layout.

But will it open the database using the FileMaker GO app, or will it open the database in Safari?

The Web Clip opens the file in FileMaker Go app if the fmp:// url prefix is used in the URL field of  the Web Clip.

I assume if an https:// prefix is used the link would open in Safari, but I have not tried that.
