If you’ve got your NRGship solution hosted on FileMaker Cloud or a local server with Encryption at Rest (EAR) and you want to update to the latest NRGship build it’s best to remove the encryption before the update otherwise you’re going to be faced with a dialog to enter the EAR password FOR EVERY IMPORT you perform. Luckily, with FileMaker Pro Advanced, you can use the Developer Utilities to remove the EAR password from your files before you run the import. This will save you the headache of entering the password and when you upload the files back to your server the password will be re-added. Check out FileMaker Help for more information on decrypting your files.

How to Encrypt for Hosting

When uploading to FileMaker Cloud for AWS or FileMaker Cloud v2 the FileMaker Server Admin Console will force you to add an encryption password. If you are going to use EAR on a local host, you will need to contact NRG support for assistance in adding the password before you upload to your host.
