New Products, New Versions, and Session at DevCon

360Works is all about automating and simplifying version management this year. Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works, will be demonstrating how you can take the pain out of rollouts across the board with our brand new 360Deploy and MirrorSync 4. Launch new versions to your users like never before!

360Deploy: Updating an already deployed database? Migrating data? Adding improvements to a live database? It can all be a pain, but it doesn?t have to be. Let the experts at 360Works introduce you to automated rollouts! Say goodbye to the complexities of the separation model, skip the tedious data imports, and stop risking data loss. In this session learn how 360Works newest tool, 360Deploy, makes it a simple operation for you to roll out updated database versions to FileMaker Server: yours, your clients, or your vertical market customers

MirrorSync 4: For developers with users accessing your database with little, slow, or no network connection, 360Works MirrorSync is the answer. Learn how you can benefit from using a synchronization tool like MirrorSync and why it is known as the most powerful and easy tool for syncing between any combination of FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, FileMaker Server, SQL database (MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or any database that supports JDBC), Salesforce, and Amazon RedShift. MirrorSync 4 will be released at DevCon, featuring a new, easy mechanism for pushing updates to users whenever a new version is available.

*Please note the following requirements for the free MirrorSync setup:

Requirements and Guidelines

  • Before the appointment, you must download and install MirrorSync on your FileMaker Server, or some other server on the same LAN as FileMaker Server. You do NOT need to purchase anything; you can use the free MirrorSync version with support for a single client device. For best performance, install MirrorSync on an SSD drive.
  • MirrorSync must be accessible from outside your LAN. Test this by going to the MirrorSync launch page from outside the LAN (i.e. http://yourserveraddress/MirrorSync), opening up the MirrorSync admin utility, and setting your free or paid license key.
  • XML Web Publishing and xDBC must both be enabled on FileMaker Server
  • Every table that you want to sync must have a primary key field (either serial numbers or UUIDs), a modification timestamp, and a creation timestamp
  • If you have a multi-file solution, make sure that there is one ?main? file that has external table occurrences for all of the tables that need to be synced.
  • Full Access account for your database is necessary, and credentials for FileMaker Server may be needed as well for configuration.

Limitations for Free Setup

  • This is for a client to server sync setup (i.e. an iPad, iPhone, or laptop running FileMaker Pro). Server-to-server syncs can be configured outside of DevCon at our standard hourly rate.
  • There is a limit of 15 tables for the free setup process. For larger solutions, contact us for a price quote for configuration.
  • For files larger than 500 megabytes, we can do the configuration at the booth, but we may not be able to download an offline copy to test the sync.
  • IMPORTANT: If you are using serial number primary keys, and those serial numbers are visible to users (i.e. invoice numbers, work orders, P.O. numbers, etc.), contact us before DevCon so we can provide instructions to modify your database. We cannot make these modifications at the booth.
  • The configuration will sync all records for all users. Selectively syncing certain records for each user can be configured after DevCon is finished, at our standard hourly rate.
  • There is no guarantee that we will be able to configure every solution within the appointment time. In this case, we can continue the work after DevCon, but additional work will be billed at our standard hourly rate.
