Limits a function.
Once limited, the function can only be called if current privilege set, account name and script name match those in the list. Lists can be empty if not needed.

For FileMaker hosting of several clients with one server, we highly recommend to limit the available plugin functions via Plugin.SetFunctions function. You also should limit some functions like Files.Delete or System.Shutdown to be only called by certain user accounts and/or script.


Limit a function to be called only from a certain script:

MBS("Plugin.LimitFunction"; "Version"; ""; ""; "test.fmp12:test")

Limit a function to be called only from a certain account name:

MBS("Plugin.LimitFunction"; "Text.WriteTextFile"; "Backup"; ""; "")
