You can request a new temporary password via the Online Software Delivery web page.

You have received a temporary password with the ready-to-download e-mail from OSD (Online Software Delivery). This password is valid for 28 days after delivery of the ready-to-download e-mail. If it expires, you can request a new temporary password directly in OSD.

  1. For this you request a new temporary password.

    1. Use the link Online Software Delivery to access the web page of OSD (Online Software Delivery).

      Alternatively you can also call OSD via the TIA Administrator or via the ALM (Automation License Manager):

      • Start the TIA Administrator and in the overview you select the "Download software" tile. 

      • Start the ALM (Automation License Manager) and in the navigation area you click "Web License Key Download".

    2. In OSD you click the link "Login with Delivery Note".

    3. Now in the dialog field you enter the dispatch note number for which you need the new temporary password. The dispatch note number is in the download-ready e-mail.
    4. Click the "Continue" button. You then immediately receive a new temporary password by e-mail.

    The new temporary password is sent automatically and exclusively to the goods receiver e-mail address which the ordering party stored during the ordering procedure. This address cannot be changed afterwards. It is not possible to send the new temporary password to another e-mail address.

    Note that a change of password is applied only after the confirmation. If you request a new temporary password in the meantime, any previously requested new temporary password or any assigned personal password becomes invalid.
