Can I use fmAccounting Link (MYOB AccountRight Edition) with FileMaker Server scripts/Perform Script on Server?
If you are authenticating via the Desktop API (i.e. your MYOB AccountRight file is stored locally on a server on your network) then you are able to use FileMaker Server scheduled scripts or Perform Script on Server to interact with your AccountRight Company File. As you are required to authenticate with your selected AccountRight Company File you will need to store the Company File credentials (username/password) somewhere where the FileMaker script can access them (i.e. these will need to be hardcoded somewhere). Don’t forget to also ensure that all script steps are server compatible.
If you are authenticating via the Cloud API (i.e. your MYOB AccountRight file is stored in the cloud) then you will NOT be able to use FileMaker Server scheduled scripts or Perform Script on Server. The Cloud API requires you to login to the my.MYOB website first before entering the credentials for the selected AccountRight Company File – this is not possible via a server side script as it requires user interaction to enter the my.MYOB login details.
