Trimble Identity for Tekla Online services
I tried to reset my password but Trimble Identity does not recognize my email address and asks me to enter a valid email address.
Error says: "Sorry, we didn't recognise this user. Please 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 reset my Trimble Identity password and now I cannot login with it. What is wrong?
Check you password. If it contains alphabets outside the range of aA-zZ, you cannot use it to login. Reset your password by selecting link Forgot password? and use allowed characters. Try logging in again.
If the emails are not in your spam folder 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. Also ask them to whitelist following IP addresses which are used when sending mails from Trimble Identity: 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
Why do emails from Trimble Identity have reference to mailgun or postgun?
Trimble Identity uses Mailgun, and email delivary service, to send the account activation and other emails so mailgun or postgun appear in the mail headers of those emails.
The password requirements are visible on the Set your password page. For security reasons, the password must at least contain:
- 8 Characters
- A digit [ 0-9 ]
- A combination of lower & uppercase letters [ aA-zZ ] (note! Scandinavian letters are not allowed)
- A special character [ !@#$%&*^_-+ ]
I used both uppercase letter and lowercase letters in my email address when I created my Trimble Identity. Does it make any difference?
No it does not make any difference. You can enter your email address, for example, like MyEmailAddress@mydomain.com, myemailaddress@MYDOMAIN.com or MYEMAILADDRESS@mydomain.com when registering, when resetting your password or when logging in. The services will always translate the email address to lowercase letters.
