Trimble Identity for Tekla Online services
Tekla Online services use Trimble Identity for identification. In addition to Tekla services, you can use your Trimble Identity with several other Trimble services, such as Trimble Connect and SketchUp 3D Warehouse.
Trimble Identity provides single-sign-on access for Tekla Online services. You can sign in one service and then browse to another online service without a need to log in again. Find the services landing page here: http://www.tekla.com/services
Use Trimble Identity also when signing in to Tekla Structures, Tekla Model Sharing and Tekla Field3D.
How do I create a Trimble Identity?
To create a Trimble Identity, go to Tekla Online services and click Log in. From the Trimble Identity login page, click on Create new Trimble ID. Enter your information. You will get an email asking you to set your password. Click the link in the email to finish creating your Trimble Identity.
I have created a Trimble Identity but cannot log in. Why?
It is likely that your Trimble Identity is not verified. When you create a Trimble Identity, you receive an email to set the password of the Trimble Identity to the e-mail address you registered. Click the link in the email to set the password. After that, you can use your Trimble Identity.
I have forgotten my Trimble Identity password
On the Trimble Identity sign in page, select Forgot password?
Fill in your email address, and click the Reset password button.
Check your email inbox for email from Trimble Identity service. In the email message, click the Reset password button to set a new password for your Trimble Identity.
You can access Trimble Identity sign in page from all Tekla Online services by selecting the Login button on the upper right corner, or in Tekla Structures, select Forgot your password? from the sign in window.
I tried to reset my password but Trimble Identity does not recognize my email address and asks me to enter a valid email address.
If the spelling of the email address is correct, this means that you don’t currently have a Trimble Identity with it. Click the Create new Trimble ID link on the sign in page, and proceed to create the Trimble Identity.
I do not receive any emails from Trimble Identity, neither do my colleagues. What is wrong?
It is likely your company’s email firewall is stopping emails from arriving. Please contact your IT department and ask them to allow emails from *@trimble.com and *@trimblepaas.com and *@mail.trimblepaas.com.
I used to have a Tekla Account with my email address, but it is not in Trimble Identity. What happened?
It is likely your Tekla Account was not verified. Unverified accounts were not migrated to Trimble Identity. Please click Create new Trimble ID in the Trimble Identity sign in page, and create a Trimble Identity with your email address.
Once you sign in to Tekla Online services with your new Trimble Identity, it will be automatically connected to the Tekla Account you had with the same email address.
I had a Trimble Identity but with a different email address than in my Tekla Account. Which account should I use now?
A new Trimble Identity got created for you in the transition. The new Trimble Identity and your old Trimble Identity could not be merged because of the different email addresses.
You can use your old Trimble Identity to sign in to Tekla Online services, but in that case you are considered as brand new user. As a new user, you do not have organization memberships or licenses you may have had earlier.
I have created a Trimble Identity for Trimble Connect earlier. It works fine with Trimble Connect, but not with Tekla Online services. What can I do?
It is likely your Trimble Identity was created through Google federation in the Trimble Connect sign in page. These social login Trimble Identities are not supported in Tekla Online services yet.
You need to reset your Trimble Identity password with the Forgot password? functionality. After that, you can use your Trimble Identity to connect to both Tekla Online services and Trimble Connect.
