Get a Demo Key

Now the plug-in is installed, you can either get a free demo key to evaluate the plug-in with, or if you have purchased a license key, skip this section and go to the Configure section

A free demo key allows you to evaluate the plug-in for 30 days to make sure it will work for your needs. A demo key is not required in order to evaluate the plug-in, however, when no demo key is used, the plug-in will timeout after 30 minutes of use.

The following sections are on this page:

Request a Demo Key

To request a demo key, you will be prompted to do so the first time you use the plug-in after opening FileMaker, or you can do so by opening the Configuration Dialog.
To get a demo key on Mac OSX via the Configuration Dialog, go to the “FileMaker Pro” menu, and then select “Preferences”. This will bring up FileMaker Pro’s “Preferences” dialog.
Navigating to the Plug-ins tab in the FileMaker Preferences
Next, click on the “Plug-ins” tab, which should give you a dialog as shown. Now, select the plug-in name and click the “Configure” button or double-click the plug-in name which would normally open the plug-in’s Configuration Dialog, but in this case, it will prompt you to get a demo key first.
FileMaker Plug-ins tab
Now you will be presented with the Welcome Dialog as shown in the image. This dialog gives you the option to get a demo key by pressing the “Request Demo Key” button. If you do not wish to get a demo key, pressing the “No Internet” or “Close” buttons will continue to the Configuration Dialog and allow you to use the plug-in for 30 minutes before it times out.

After pressing the “Request Demo Key” button, the “Request a Demo License Key” dialog will appear. Enter your First Name, Last Name, and optionally your email address, then press the OK button. The plug-in will now retrieve a demo key from our servers and register the plug-in with it.
