Installing a plugin direct from the web
All plugins are .zip files for ease of download and decompression. However, all versions are also available as .gz versions which are files that can be inserted into a container field, and will be auto de-compressed by FileMaker automatically. This means you can use an Insert File or Insert From URL script step to insert this plugin, and then immediately run the Install Plugin script step to install it.
This also has the advantage of the BaseElements.fmplugin.gz version to be distributed on Windows without breaking the bundle file format.
Examples of the urls for these plugins are :
Mac: https://goya.com.au/files/beplugin/4.1.4/BaseElements.fmplugin.gz Win64: https://goya.com.au/files/beplugin/4.1.4/BaseElements.fmx64.gz Linux: https://goya.com.au/files/beplugin/4.1.4/BaseElements.fmx.gz
Code Signed Plugins for FileMaker 18 ( Pro and Server )
The downloadable versions of 3.3.8 above, and any 4.x release from 4.0.5 or later will be code signed. So it will load in FileMaker Server and won't show a dialog in FileMaker Pro.
Notarized Plugins for Mac OS 10.15 Catalina
Mac OS 10.15 now requires applications ( including FileMaker Pro and any plugins you're using ) to be both code signed, and notarized to run without any alerts or issues.
Version 4.1.2 and later are notarized as well as code signed, and should run without any alerts.
If you want to run a different plugin version, and it's not notarized, use this workaround :
- Open FileMaker with the plugin installed, and you'll get an error.
- Close FileMaker.
- Right click on the plugin. In the menu that comes up, hold down the Option key, and choose "Always Open With" then select FileMaker Pro in the File selection dialog that comes up.
- Open System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General, BaseElements will be listed there.
- Click "Allow Anyway".
- When asked for the Application to use, choose FileMaker Pro.
Restart FileMaker and it should allow the plugin to work.
