Running server-side scripts
Note  The following information is for server administrators and group administrators.
FileMaker Server can run two types of scripts to automate administrative tasks:
FileMaker scripts defined in hosted databases. See Running FileMaker scripts.
System-level script files. See Running system-level script files.
Both FileMaker scripts and system-level scripts execute on the master machine in your FileMaker Server deployment.
To run a script, create a scheduled task on FileMaker Server. Specify the script, and when and how often to run the script. As with any schedule, you can run the scheduled task manually at any time.
You can also create a Script Sequence scheduled task that runs optional pre-processing and post-processing system-level scripts before and after a FileMaker script. See Creating Script Sequence tasks.
Note  If you are a group administrator, your server administrator must configure your administrator group to allow you to run scripts associated with the databases in your group folder. For more information, contact your server administrator.
