As a user I want to link multiple resources to be linked to a common secret (aka resource alias)

In Password Safe, the sofware we are substituting with Passbolt, a very important feature is that of password aliases. That means that an independent entry (the alias) will always have the same password as another entry (the base), even when this changes, while all other attributes are independent (name, URL, comment, etc.)

Is that possible in Passbolt?

Hello Noel, the feature you are describing is not supported at the moment. Can you elaborate about the use case, e.g. explain why it’s important, or the kind of workflow you use it in?

Hello Remy, In some cases the administrator password for some storage arrays is set by the Client to be the same in all the arrays, or in other cases the IPMI/iLO/iDRAC passwords are left as they were by default. In some cases, the root password or Domain Admin is the same for groups of related machines, and is changed with some regularity but in all of them at the same time.

As our group isn’t allowed to change these, we need to take note of them in our Password Safe, to be substituted by Passbolt, as they are, all the same. This is very well managed by aliases, as we take note of the string only once (very handy when it changes), but make individual entries for each array or computer, with its own IP.

I’d like to add my support for this feature request! This is a feature that can be really helpful when using the same login for multiple sub-domains or related domains, for example if you have a login for both amazon-com and smile-amazon-com, or multiple TLD with different country extensions. In my case specifically, we have multiple environments for the same websites that we’re developing (e.g. domain-com and dev-domain-com), which I think is a pretty common scenario for the kind of user that Passbolt would attract.

LastPass gets pretty close with a feature called equivalent domains, but it’s not a password-level setting and thus cannot be easily shared with other users.

Note: I’m using “-” instead of “.” in the domain/subdomain examples since I’m a new user and cannot post more than 2 links per post.


was there any progress on this topic?
I am facing the same issue. Our company onPrem admin accounts are synced to several cloud providers. So I would like to have the browser extension to suggest me the same credentials for different domains.
It would help, if there is an option to fill in multiple domains for one passbolt entry :-).

But maybe there is already an option that I did not recognize.

Thanks and have a nice one.
