A little add-on to manage the 'missing' settings in the FileMaker Server 18 Admin Console

In FileMaker Server 17 the Admin Console was redesigned to be more lightweight and provide a streamlined user interface for easier administration of your custom apps. Redesigning means making choices. So some advanced settings are no longer available via the Admin Console. Most of these features are available via the brand-new FileMaker Admin API in FileMaker Server 18 that this tool consumes.


This little add-on lets you manage these ‘missing” settings via an user-friendly interface:

Server Settings

  • Limit number of FileMaker Pro client connections
  • Maximum number of Simultaneous Script Sessions
  • Maximum number of Files to Host
  • RAM Reserved for Database Cache

Security Settings

  • Require Password-protected Databases

PHP Technology

  • Enable PHP Publishing
  • Use FileMaker Server-supported version of PHP
  • PHP Pre-validation, Language and Encoding Settings

XML Technology

  • Enable XML Publishing

Open Source and Free

This free tool, written for FileMaker Pro 17 and Go, is completely open-source under the GNU license.

It is developed by the FM Connection team. FM Connection, a division of Lesterius, provides managed dedicated FileMaker hosting and co-manages the FileMaker infrastructure of your custom apps, including FileMaker Cloud.

The tool you need to implement nice looking progress indicators in FileMaker

Are you struggling with implementing nice looking progress indicators in FileMaker to show the user the status of a task?


FMProgressIndicator is the tool you need to come up with such user interface elements that are also supported on all FileMaker platforms! All it requires of you is some basic knowledge of FileMaker. Knowing your way around Bootstrap will help you in making full use of the styling controls.


Progress indicators?
It’s good practice to give the user some form of feedback when running a lengthy process. In the case of tasks that run longer than 1 second, a progress indicator is the best choice. It sends a signal to the users that your app is still working and performing what it should do.



  • HTML-based progress indicators
  • Configurator to style the indicator to your liking
  • Easy to integrate
  • Cross platform

System requirements:

  • FileMaker Pro 18 to create and style your own progress indicator

What’s New in Version 2.0.0


Bug fixes:
– fixed minor issue where ‘record migration’ was not always shown properly in the tables tab

– FMDataMigration now makes use of the MBS plugin instead of the BaseElements plugin due to better compatibility / flexibility using system commands. The demo version of the MBS plugin allows you to run a data migration without purchasing a license. Do mind regular dialog window may popup when using a demo license. Since Lesterius has a MBS license I advice you to install this one
– New version supports the new available options to: rebuild indexes and re-evaluate calculations

– FileMaker Pro 18 minimum
– FMDataMigration is advised if you want to use all options
– MBS plugin 9.0 as minimum version (available in the file)
