  1. Hi Marcel, I am a bit of a noob still, but believe I would love to try Node-RED for Filemaker. Do you know if it also works if apps are hosted in the Claris Filemaker Cloud or can I then only use Claris Connect? Thanks for all the info I have gotten from you so far already and thanks in advance in case you are kind enough to answer this question, Gijs
