As a user I want to select multiple records and perform a bulk action these entries

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Currently there is no easy way to delete or share multiple password in one go. You can face this issue while setuping our Passbolt Instance: after importing 50+ passwords, sharing them one by one was a bit discouraging.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Everyone, especially people that manage a lot of passowrds.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
This will improve productivity

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)

- Which actions should we cover?
– Share (see bellow)
– Delete
– Export

- What should we show in the dialog if two passwords have different permissions and are selected and the shared button is pressed?
A similar user experience exists in Google Drive, when you select two or more files and then click the Sharing link.

The way they handle it is to show a list of users who access to one or more of the files, and show access of “Varies” next to each user which has different levels of access.

I think this is a clean solution:


Q5. Community support
People can vote for this idea to show traction:

  • :ok_woman: Must have: this is critical for me to have this
  • :raising_hand_woman: Should have: this is important for me to have this
  • :tipping_hand_woman: Could have: this could be nice to have
  • :no_good_woman: Won’t have: we should not schedule this (explain why)

Is this going to be implemented any time soon? If not, it’s a dealbreaker for us. We manage 500+ passwords for our org, and if we can’t do operations in bulk then we can’t use the software.

It should be implemented in the next few weeks. Before that, we need to upgrade canjs to its latest version, which @cedric is doing now. Once this upgrade is done, then this feature is at the top of the priority list for us.

Any updates on this? It’s a stopper for us also, we need to migrate a lot of passwords from Teampass. and doing it one by one would be awful.


No update at the moment. The upgrade to the latest version of canjs took more time than planned. It is still very much on the list of features we want to tackle this quarter.

I think this is not an optional feature. There are even the checkboxes already there. Our developers shake their heads (they naturally respect the security quality of the application). This is such a basic feature… :thinking:

This feature has recently moved back up in our immediate roadmap. There were some dependencies we needed to take care of before we could tackle it (like canjs upgrade).
You can expect it in the coming weeks.

This feature is available with Passbolt Pro and CE v2.4.0.

Great!! Thank you very much. Now import and share for the next batch of passwords will be much more smoother! A big time and nerv safer.

Would we be ungrateful if we ask for the feature to change also tags for multiple records? In the first row we would get rid of the forced tags while importing tags (eq. import-csv-20180829164144). Meanwhile we have some of them and our users are asking what they are. Generally it would be practical to change tags for many passwords at once.

BTW Groups in groups :slight_smile:
