Disable export of passwords for user


Hi *,
I’m searching for a possibility to disable the export of passwords in passbolt pro for some users (or if not possible per user then for all users). How can I achieve this?

Thanks a lot four your help!



Hi @anli,
It is not possible as of now, but it is an easy improvement that we are planning to implement in the very short term.
Please bear with us in the meantime. We’ll ping you once it’s done.



is there any update on this feature?
I’m planning to buy Passbolt but I want to disable exporting all passwords.


This would be great to have, in our usecase we want to minimize the “ease” for induviduals to extract passwords.

It function can be disabled. Do it in file config/default.php (147 line). Just change it to false.


Actually the best way to do it would be to copy / paste the instructions found in passbolt.php (to avoid git synchronization issues during updates).
Configuration options to disable export are available in the documentation: https://help.passbolt.com/faq/configure/enable-disable-import-export-plugins

Please note: it is currently not possible to disable the feature role wise. It can be disabled either for all, or for no-one. In a future release we’ll provide the option to enable / disable it roles wise.
