As a user I'd like to be able to create a password for a group (Without clicking share)


Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
The current steps to adding an entry to a group are;

  1. Login as me
  2. Create entry
  3. Click share
  4. Add group as owner
  5. Delete self as owner
  6. Save (type in password)

This is a bit long when you want to create an entry specifically for a group.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Everybody using groups.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
Ease of use is part of the product values.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
I’d love to be able to do:

  1. Login as me
  2. Create entry and set owner to group rather than self
  3. Click save
As an admin I can audit passwords that are not shared with anyone
As a company owner, I can retrieve any secret stored in the company passbolt instance

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)

In a business environment, I would also like this to be extended by enforcing a policy: “all passwords must be shared with a group”. That is: completely disable the ability to create a password which is owned by an individual and not shared.

The problem this solves is: people have been putting in company secrets just for themselves, and when they leave, they are lost.
