FileMaker Client installers with FileMaker Cloud

If you purchased your FileMaker Cloud server with user connection licenses,  you may well wonder “Where do I get the client software to connect to my server?”.

A fair chance you’ll initially land on the screen below. This seems relevant, but there’s still no indication here how you can download the FileMaker Pro clients you have licenses for.

But if we click through to the Subscription Center page, we finally find what we are looking for:

fm-cloud-subscription-center

The links in the Subscription Center do not require a user to log in to the admin console, so you can easily send out the download links instead of the installer files to your users.

Lower down on the page, you can register your server with FileMaker, or terminate the server instance. Somewhat oddly to me, this is also the page is where you can download many of the server’s log files.
