MirrorSync 2.110 (7/15/2014)

  • New feature allows syncing with a separate mobile file that is pre-populated with record data matching the server (previous version required offline file to be empty, if it was not a copy of the server file). This only works when using UUIDs.
  • New feature allows de-duping to happen during sync, by customizing the 'MirrorSync customization' script. See advanced docs for more details.
  • MirrorSync log file now includes more detail on how long it took to read and write from each database, to help find performance bottlenecks
  • Better handling of invalid numeric data, such as bad ASCII characters. Now passes through as text instead of trying to convert to number.
  • Fixed a problem that could occur in rare cases during initial sync if primary keys start with a space.
  • Fixed a problem where MirrorSync complained that fields were missing, if there were special characters like periods in the filename
  • Fixed a problem that could occur when using custom record filtering to return a single record, if that single record was different for different syncing users
  • Fixed a problem that could cause the wrong foreign key to be written when resolving a conflict

  • Download links did not work when using SSL; this is now fixed.
  • Fixed a bug when using MirrorSync managed keys that the wrong foreign keys could get written during field-level conflict merging
  • AuditLog text file was mis-matching some fields with their values; this is fixed. Did not affect the actual sync, just the audit log.
  • Fixed some cases where the cancel / abort button didn't work during a long sync
  • Fixed a case where containers were not synced from client to server when connecting via a separate IP address

Important Information about Using 360Works Plug-ins with Scheduled Scripts on Windows1/28/14 12:59 PM

Important Information about Using 360Works Plug-ins with Scheduled Scripts on Windows

We have recently discovered that 360Works plug-ins are incompatible with server-side scheduled scripts on FileMaker Server 13 with Windows Server 2012 or Windows 8. Attempting to call the plug-in will lead to the FMSE process hanging until it is restarted. This also affects the use of the Perform Script on Server feature.

Please note this problem does not affect FileMaker Server 12, or other Mac or Windows platforms. It also does not affect scripts used by the Web Publishing Engine.

360Works is aware of this problem and will release new versions of all our plug-ins as soon as possible. When the fix is ready, you'll see an update on our website at If you have any questions about plug-in compatibility or any of our products, please let us know at

iOS uploads, foreign character support, and more in SuperContainer 2.87!4/10/13 10:51 AM

SuperContainer ( has been updated to version 2.87. SuperContainer makes file storage faster, more efficient, and more flexible than standard container fields, and it keeps getting better. With this new version, users with iPhone, iPad, or iPod devices running iOS 6 or later can now upload files directly to SuperContainer. Utilizing Safari uploads in iOS 6, you can directly upload files from within a web viewer in a FileMaker solution or even straight from a web browser (requires Enterprise license). Collect images and files straight from the field on an iPad and store them where needed on the server, or upload images from an iPhone's photo library.

SuperContainer 2.87 also adds better foreign character support by making file names and URL character handling more robust. Uploads, URLs, and upload directories work much better with non US-ASCII character sets. We've corrected some problems with SuperContainer server and IIS 7, and fixed the applet to correctly work with spaces in file names and upload directories. We've also fixed some file name encoding issues in the HTML UI.

In addition, you can now generate thumbnails for more types of TIFF files when SuperContainer is deployed with Tomcat. Thumbnails should now generate correctly when deploying with FileMaker Server.

Users who upgrade will experience much faster speeds when using SCSetBaseURL. Also, a memory leak has been found and fixed in the SuperContainer companion plug-in.
