Opening DiveTab and Connecting

When opening the DiveTab client for the first time, you need to enter a server, username, and password.

  1. Depending on how you installed the DiveTab application, to open it you:

    • Double-click the DiveTab icon on the desktop.
    • Click the Start menu, and click the DiveTab icon.
    • Click the Start menu, search for DiveTab in the Windows search box, and click the DiveTab application in the results.

    The DiveTab application opens and displays the Closedlogin page.

    This is the log in screen for DiveTab PC.

  2. In the Server box, enter the URL of the DiveTab project. If the server does not show in the pull-down list, type the full URL, including the port number where necessary.
  3. Do one of the following based on the login process:
    • User and Password: Enter your username in the first box, your password in the second box, and your DiveTab project's URL in the Server box.
    • OpenID Connect: Select Login. You are redirected via a browser to the site where you enter your username and password.
    • User: Select Login. If redirected via a browser, enter your username and password on the site. If an error returns, return to the DiveTab application to enter your user name and password.

    NOTE: OpenID Connect and User login methods are available in DiveTab 7.1(24). A site using the User login process has some users that use OpenID Connect and some that use User and Password.

  4. Click Login.

    NOTE: First access triggers synchronization automatically. On subsequent visits, click the Sync button on the lower left to apply recent application updates and refresh cached data.
