Issue

When you sign into the NBS Plugin for Autodesk Revit with your NBS account, your username and password are not recognised.

Cause

Your username and password are incorrect or the plug-in cannot authenticate them with the NBS licence server.

Resolution

  1. [Important] Firstly check you have the latest version of the NBS plug-in installed.
    In Autodesk Revit click on the NBS menu > About > Version. Compare this with the version on the NBS plug-in downloads page. If necessary, please update.
  2. Confirm your username and password are correct. Check this by logging into this website (My NBS at the top of the page). If you can log in successfully your login details are not the cause of the issue.
  3. Run the plug-in diagnostics to help diagnose the issue.
    In Autodesk Revit click on the NBS menu > About > Diagnostics > Run Tests.
