A Redgate ID is a free user account that gives you a secure and personalized experience with Redgate products and services. Your purchases, quotes, updates, and trials of Redgate products and services are all managed through your Redgate ID. You can also use your Redgate ID to register your products and contact Redgate support.
Your Redgate ID should be the email address you first used when you purchased a Redgate product or service, when you created a quote, or you first logged a Redgate support request. Redgate does not create an ID on your behalf, you will need to do this on the Redgate website.
Creating a Redgate ID
If you don’t already have a Redgate ID, you can create one:
Go to the Redgate ID log in page and enter your email address
If the email address you have entered is not already associated with a Redgate ID, you'll be presented with the option 'Create Redgate ID'
- Enter a password of your choice
You'll receive an email from Redgate asking you to verify your Redgate ID. Click the confirmation link in the email to confirm your email address
You can now log in to your account.
Using your Redgate ID
When you're logged in you can:
view details of your Redgate products
change your contact details and invoice address
manage your email preferences
change or reset your password
Activating Redgate products with a Redgate ID
A Redgate ID is required to activate Redgate products and services.
For more information, see Activating.
Changing the email address associated with your Redgate ID
If you need to change your Redgate ID email address you will need to create a new Redgate ID for the email address you wish to use. Then you can log in to the customer portal using your new Redgate ID and begin transferring your licenses from the old account to the new.
If you are a license owner, see How to request ownership of a license.
If you are a license admin, you will need to ask the license owner to invite you to be an admin using your new email address.
If you are a license user, log into the customer portal using your old Redgate ID and remove yourself from the license. Then activate the product again, this time using your new Redgate ID. Once activated, the license will appear on your My Products page in the customer portal.
