- I can't complete the registration.
Your registration may not be completed. Please contact us.
For old y-Link users, your account transfer needs to be completed. Please refer to an e-mail sent to you to complete your account transfer.
- Temporary registration completion notification e-mail did not arrive.
You may not receive the e-mail if the e-mail address was entered incorrectly, if spam filters were enabled, or for other reasons. Make sure you entered the correct e-mail address. Also, make sure your e-mail program will accept e-mail from: Yokogawa Partner Portal Customer Support <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* Temporary registration completion notification e-mail will become invalid 24 hours after being sent. If you are unable to complete registration within those 24 hours, please re-register.
- Do passwords expire?
No, but from a security perspective we recommend that you change your password periodically.
* There is a 90-day expiration period for some members with service contracts.
- Is it OK if the password strength meter indicates "weak"?
Yes. The password strength meter is only there so that you can confirm the strength of the password yourself. You can use a password with "weak" strength, but from a security perspective we recommend using one with "moderate" or higher strength.
- When logging in, it says "Incorrect User ID and/or Password".
When logging in, if the user ID and password do not exactly match the ones you entered during registration, you will be unable to log in. Confirm that you entered the correct user ID and password. The user ID is the e-mail address that you registered. Note that the password is case-sensitive (use the correct capitalization). If you forget your password, please use the following password reset procedure.
- Can I use my y-Link ID and password?
No. Our member site y-Link was merged with Partner Portal in May 2019. For old y-Link users, your account transfer needs to be completed. Please refer to an e-mail sent to you to complete your account transfer.
- My account was locked.
To prevent unauthorized access, the account is locked for 1 hour if a password is entered incorrectly more than 5 times. Try logging in again after 1 hour, or use the following password reset procedure.
Forgotten ID or password
- I forgot my user ID.
Unfortunately, due to security concerns about personal information we cannot respond to inquiries about a forgotten user ID (e-mail address). With apologies for the inconvenience, please register your membership again.
- I forgot my password.
If you forget your password, please use the following password reset procedure.
- I entered my e-mail address in "Forgot your password?", but no e-mail has arrived.
You won’t receive an e-mail if the entered ID (e-mail address) was not registered, was entered incorrectly, is blocked by a spam filter, or for other reasons. Make sure you entered the correct e-mail address, and make sure your e-mail program will accept e-mail from: Yokogawa Partner Portal Customer Support <email@example.com>
