Detailed steps to reproduce the issue encountered:

Go to EFB Options Screen and enter a Simbrief Username containing Upper and Lower Case letters using an external keyboard. Entry gets displayed as all upper case. Go to the Home or OFP screen and try to Import from Simbrief. Message that Sumbrief Username not entered. Go to Option Screen.

I have been able to load the Simbrief Flight Plan into the MCDU though by entering the Username on the ACTU screen and ten Request on the Init screen.

Enable the onscreen keyboard on the Options page and use that.

I have tried both the EFB on-screen keyboard, and the Xbox on-screen keyboard (with a Microsoft wireless external keyboard attached).

I am able to enter my Simbrief Username - it shows in the username field on the EFB > Options page, and is spelled correctly… The problem (for me) is that it believes the field is “not set” when it is clearly set.

So you dismissed the usual on screen pop-up keyboard and used the EFB enabled one partially hidden behind it and that didn’t work for you? Sorry about that. I’m on Xbox and my Simbrief Username (Navigraph Alias), which is a mix of Upper and Lower Case letters was accepted first time. Must admit I was surprised as nothing else worked.

Have you been able to enter your Simbrief Username in the EFB and at least get Flight Plan and Winds imported? Hope so as I never had problems with that one, just the EFB.

It seems there are 2 “usernames” in a Navigraph / Simbrief account.

  • Navigraph Alias (Username)
  • Simbrief Username (“Original Username”) used prior to Navigraph acquisition

In my case I only have a Navigraph Username, and the Simbrief “Original Username” is “N/A”. If I try to edit the “Original Username” it takes me to the new Navigraph Account page where only the new Alias (Username) is available.

I think the Inibuilds A320neo v2 is mixing these up:

  • The MCDU looks for and finds the new Navigraph Alias Username
  • The EFB seems to look for the old Simbrief Original Username - and if it is empty in the Simbrief account, the EFB returns the error “Simbrief Username not set.”

I tried my Simbrief Pilot ID number on the EFB which worked - indicating the MCDU and EFB are asking Simbrief for different fields.

Simbrief-username

Same issue here.

Have you tried the solutions in this thread using the EFB Options On Screen Keyboard.

For me it took the Simbrief Username but others have used Pilot ID

Both of these are work arounds so not marked as solutions. Good luck

The solution is type your username using the inbuilt keyboard instead Xbox keyboard.

did not work for me, only Pilot ID number worked.

Yeah, I’ve tried everything. Whether it’s using the on-screen keyboard, the Xbox default keyboard, or logging in with my Pilot ID or username; it all results in the same error. ‘Username not set,’ even though it’s clearly set when checking in the options.

Frustrating. Sorry to hear that.

One final thought. If you’re using Navigraph I think the username needs to be the Navigraph Alias not any previous Simbrief Username that you might have.

Are you able to enter the Username in the MCDU/MENU ATSU screen?

Go to Account Settings in SimBrief and use the " Original Username" is right from the “Pilot ID”

This finally loaded a flight plan in my browser once I entered the Simbrief Account “Alias” in the EFB Options Simbrief Username!

Yeah, sadly I don’t have a legacy ‘alias’ username, so cant use that one. Tried to enter my ID too, but generating the same error simbrief username not set.

And @CD0139 yes I’m able to put my username in the MCDU/MENU ATSU screen. But that’s not linked to my EFB, sadly.

Thanks for the help but seems were stuck here till an update fixes the issue.
