How to protect individual field value in a distributed FileMaker database..??
Posted on 2016-10-05
I have a "PayPal for FileMaker" solution I put together that uses the Scodigo PHP SmartPill plugin.
Scodigo's plugin has a license I have to buy and then I can distribute it with my solution, however, I need to find a way to hide this license key from people that I distribute my solution to, while still making it available to the solution itself so that it can run properly.
Within the solution file is a script like this:
PHPRegister('123456789', 'Product Name');
So the value 123456789 needs to be hidden from users so they can never see it, but still needs to be available to this function within the solution file that I am distributing.
Is there a way I can store the value in a container field that cannot be accessed by anything but the script, or any other way I can handle this situation?
Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
