FileMaker 18 Advanced – Security Enhancements

Video Tutorial

The streamlined Manage Security dialog box allows you to be more efficient in managing access to your custom apps by filtering by account type, assigning privilege sets to users and groups directly in the list, and performing other common tasks in the details pane without leaving the list.

In addition, solution developers can utilize a new privilege set which allows for offloading account access management to other team members without needing to provide full access to any other parts of the file.

The security features in FileMaker Pro Advanced let you decide who can use your custom app and what they can do after they are logged in.

Why is this important?

Every app should have protection against unauthorized users, and FileMaker Pro Advanced makes it simple for you to add security and permissions.
