Turn on the Data API

Updated Mar 31, 2021

LCFM Native uses the Data API, therefore it needs to be turned on. You can use FM Server 17 or later.

Sign in to your FM Server console. For this lesson, I am using localhost, you can also use a remote server. The url to sign in through your browser for localhost is

http://localhost:16001/admin-console/signin

Click on the Connectors tab (1), and then on FileMaker Data API (2)

Turn on the Data API.
