Last year when I wrote this blog post we were talking about FileMaker 16 and the Data API being in beta. Now that FileMaker 17 has officially been released and along with it the the Data API is out of beta and is a version 1.0. An important change to note is that if you were using Tableau to connect to your your Data using the Web Data Connector using FileMaker 16, then I am sure that you have heard about the release of FileMaker 17. Hopefully you will be upgrading soon to continue using these 2 solutions together. Two other important things to mention is. First, the Data API with FieMaker 16 will stop functioning.
The FileMaker Data API (Trial) License will expire on September 27, 2018.
The second import item is that the url has changed so when you establish your connection with Tableau you’ll need to be sure to use the correct url. They have included a version number in it to future proof it.
Also wanted to mention that over the course of the last year Tableau also made some significant additions and improvements that are worth checking out and getting upgraded.
It’s here and I feel like I have to tell the whole world… which is what I am doing! Now that FileMaker 16 is officially announced, there are lots of exciting things to talk about that are now possible. I think one of the most powerful new features that have been introduced in version 16 is the capability to integrate with other applications or services. There is so much to talk about what now becomes possible with FileMaker and other services/applications.

If you’ve been working with FileMaker, then I don’t have to sell you on the fact that it’s a great solution to help you manage your data. Whether you’re an in-house developer, a consultant, or just starting to explore what is possible with this powerful platform, you will at some point come across the need to build in some kind of dashboard. Maybe your group needs to see sales trends for the last year or perhaps you have a system that tracks projects and want to see the daily average of tasks completed. In either case, dashboards are a great way to synthesize large amounts of information and provide you with insight in a simple and informative visual design.
