Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
When I am offline, or there is a major network outage which prevents access to the passbolt server, or in case the passbolt server itself dies, I would like to have the passwords on my local filesystem so I can decrypt them with gpg.
Q2 - Who is impacted?
Users who depend on Passbolt for storing network-critical passwords or who have on-call responsibility.
Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
Passbolt already sends out the individual GPG files via E-mail, but I may have deleted those E-mails. In any case, an E-mail client is not a great place to archive them, and manually pasting them into local files each time is tedious.
Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
I’d like to press a button on the web interface to download either:
- a zipfile containing all the passwords I have access to, with filenames equal to the password name; or
- a single long text file containing all the armoured passwords, each one prefaced by metadata
WORKAROUND: a system-level administrator can do this with a SQL query.
Q5. Community support
People can vote for this idea to show traction:
- Must have: this is critical for me to have this
- Should have: this is important for me to have this
- Could have: this could be nice to have
- Won’t have: we should not schedule this (explain why)
