Introducing Bluebeam ID (BBID)

What’s a Bluebeam ID?

In order to improve license management and account access, we’re consolidating access to Bluebeam Studio and the Bluebeam Gateway into one login, called the Bluebeam ID (BBID).

If you’re a Gateway admin, learn how this change affects you. If you aren’t a Gateway admin, the main difference you will see is that your Studio account is now called your BBID.

Creating a Bluebeam ID

If you have an existing Bluebeam Studio account, your Studio login info is now your BBID. You shouldn’t notice any difference to your login process. To sign into Studio, use your existing Studio account email and password. You can reset your password if you need to.

Signing into the Gateway

As a Gateway admin, you’ll need to use your BBID to sign in to the Gateway. This process is different depending on whether you have an existing Studio account.

  • If your Gateway account uses the same email as your Studio account:
    This is now your BBID. Sign in using the email and password for your Studio account. You can reset your password if you need to.

  • If your Gateway account uses a different email from your Studio account:
    You’ll need to create a BBID using the same email address as your existing Gateway account.

  • If you have a Gateway account but have never had a Studio account:
    You’ll need to create a BBID using the same email address as your existing Gateway account.

    If you don’t use the same email address as your existing Gateway account, your license information will not transfer to your BBID.
