Add ability to declare and reference variables i.e. $work_em, $personal_ph, $sydney_ad

Feature name

  • Form Variables

Feature Function

  • What will this feature do differently?
    This will allow Bitwarders to declare variables somewhere and reference that variable using a special syntax, i.e. moustache/handlebars: {{my_variable}}; or dollar/bash syntax: $my_var (or something else).

  • What benefits will this feature bring?
    This will allow users to update a single important variable which is shared by many logins or even across many forms. My name and address don’t change too often, so when creating a new form, for example, it would be great to be able to specify {{first}} and {{last} or even {{sydney_address}} and {{berlin_address}} (these are weak examples but they get the point accross, email vars is really where it’s at).

  • Remember to add a tag for each client application that will be affected

Related topics + references

  • Are there any related topics that may help explain the need and function of this feature?

Bitwarders could potentially add the variable as a new, special type of entry to their Vault:

It would require 3 attributes:

  • name: the displayed/user chosen name of the variable, i.e. “Work Email”

  • reference: how the variable is referenced, i.e. {{work_em}}

  • value: the value that the variable holds, i.e. [email protected]

  • Are there any references to this feature or function on other platforms that may be helpful?
