Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, April 23, 2019–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Activator Plug-in 5.0 for FileMaker Pro 17. What is Troi Activator Plug-in? Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts remotely. All from within FileMaker you can: trigger a FileMaker script on a different computer (remotely) trigger a FileMaker script over internet use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step communicate with databases in different FileMaker versions or even runtimes Except from remote triggering you can also use the Activator Plug-in for: triggering a script on a specified date and time scheduling events which trigger any script you want running a script from any FileMaker calculation, for example a tooltip calculation validating fields on exiting a record with a custom script suited to your specific needs What is new in version 5.0? Troi Activator Plug-in 5.0 is compatible with FileMaker 17 and has the following new functionality: Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 17.0.4. Added script triggering via a URL (using the GET HTTP method) on macOS and Windows. You can now trigger a script with a URL like this: http://www.example.com:54242/triggerscript.html?yourText=someText You can also specify an (optional) password in the URL and add whether you want to wait for a response. In the triggered script you can specify the response text with the new Actr_SetHTTPResponse function or Set HTTP Response script step. The Activator Web Server functionality, including the Image Upload Server functionality, is now also available on Windows. (Windows) Added code signing to the plug-in for Windows.
