NRG Software is excited to announced that the current release of all NRGship solutions are compatible with FileMaker Cloud hosting.
First you will need to use FileMaker Pro to upload the NRGship files to your cloud server using the Upload to Host menu option. Once the files are uploaded, you will need to open the databases for hosting with the Admin Console for FileMaker Cloud and assign an encryption password for each file. Be sure to note your encryption password for future reference as you will need it for updates to NRGship.
For security reasons, FileMaker Cloud does not support automatic login to a FileMaker Pro file using a specific account and password. Using FileMaker Pro v18 or above you can modify NRGship for easy integration with your existing database files by creating groups for external authentication.
Customers using NRG Ship Connect should email firstname.lastname@example.org for upgrade information.
In this short video we walkthru the steps required to add external authentication using FileMaker ID.
