FileMaker Server can use external function plug-ins with hosted FileMaker Pro databases that are designed to use the Install Plug-In File script step. When hosted databases use plug-ins enabled on FileMaker Server, the FileMaker Script Engine (FMSE) and the Web Publishing Engine can run plug-in functions rather than client machines.
See FileMaker Pro Help for information about:
- working with plug-ins
- the Install Plug-In File script step
