Paths in server-side scripts

When running a script on FileMaker Server or FileMaker Cloud:

  • Any specified file must be in the Documents folder, the temporary folder, or a child folder of either of these folders. Get functions that return information about other folders are not supported.

    For example, the following are all valid paths for file.csv:


    <Temporary Path>/file.csv


    <Temporary Path>/Folder1/Folder2/Folder3/Folder4/file.csv

  • Any incomplete path to the file (for example, on a Mac, a path other than
    /Macintosh HD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Documents/<0 or more folders>/<filename> ) is evaluated as being relative to the temporary path.
  • Any paths that include ".." are invalid.
