FileMaker Admin API and Admin Console log

By default, the FileMaker Admin API components generate log information related to Admin Console activity and the FileMaker Admin API. The fac.log records:

  • all FileMaker Admin API errors

  • information related to user interactions with Admin Console

See Claris Admin API and FileMaker Admin API Guide.

FileMaker Server also logs activities of the Admin Console interactions in the fac.log file. Typical events that are logged include:

  • Starting Admin Console

  • Stopping Admin Console

  • Email notification test errors

The fac.log file is created in the following folder:

  • FileMaker Server: FileMaker Server/Admin/FAC/logs/

  • Claris Server: Server/Admin/FAC/logs/
