  • Trimble Identity

    All sharing actions require authentication, and the authentication is done with Trimble Identityuser account to Tekla online services and other Trimble services

    For a Tekla Structures user, Trimble Identity is a single sign-on account which enables the user’s online identity management. The organization that the user’s Trimble Identity belongs to, determines the user’s access rights. Trimble Identity is needed, for example, for Tekla Campus and Tekla Warehouse, and to log in to Tekla User Assistance.

    If you do not have a Trimble Identity , go to the Log in dialog box.

About Service Pack in use, user1 cloud use the last service pack ,for example SP8, and user2 could use the service pack 6 without any problems?

by Tommi Hautalahti

There is nothing built into the software that would prevent that, and it probably mostly works fine, but it can't be guaranteed to always work without problems. As stated above, the recommendation is that all users stay current with the latest updates. This way, the software behaves the same for all users, and they have the latest fixes to any issues.

Keeping up-to-date with the latest service packs is our official recommendation for all users, even those who only work on single-user models.
