We do not only take a deep look into Node-Red in comparision to Claris Connect. You will also learn about the basic concepts in building Flows and get some starting points for your own projects.

We will build a FileMaker-Server Dashboard for live monitoring with some interesting features:
- Realtime Logfile capturing
- Realtime Dashboard of Events
- Routing of multiple Logfiles to a hosted FileMaker Database via Data API
- mobile Frontend for the Dashboard
- mobile Notifications

Outlook on further concepts that could be implemented:
- Realtime monitoring of server hardware metrics
- Including FileMaker Server events by accessing the Admin API
- Deploying a customized REST API for FileMaker Server Adminstration

Your takeaways:
You’ll get some insights about the powerful mechanisms of Node-Red.
You’ll learn how easy it is to access the FileMaker Data API with the Node-Red FileMaker Plugin.
You’ll learn to build and deploy own Dashboards.
You’ll get an idea about the possibilies of Node-Red integration into other services.
Last but not least: The FileMaker Server Dashboard-Flow will be free to download as a demo file for your own use!
