FileMaker Cloud compatibility

By October 27, 2016November 13th, 2017Compatibility

Here you’ll find some information regarding compatibility of Troi Plug-ins with FileMaker Cloud.
We will update this page when we release new versions of our plug-ins. Please check back for updates.


Running plug-ins on FileMaker Cloud

FileMaker Cloud runs on the Linux operating system. This means that a new platform has to be added to all plug-ins, in addition to the existing Windows and macOS platform. All plug-ins need to be rewritten for this. See below for an overview of all Troi plug-ins and which of them have been updated to work with FileMaker Cloud.

Installing plug-ins and database files on FileMaker Cloud

All FileMaker Cloud compatible versions of Troi plug-ins provide an EasyInstallTroiPlug-ins.fmp12 example file, which can install the plug-in on FileMaker Cloud. For this to work the file has to be uploaded to FileMaker Cloud. You will find instructions for this on the Filemaker Cloud Install Instructions web page.
