I’m using Bitwarden personally outisde of work but now I’m looking to move my work to Bitwarden too. We are about 20 employees and I have a couple of concerns regarding backup.
For you who use Bitwardens cloud solution, how do you mange backups?
Do you just export an unencrypted .json/.csv-file and encrypt it yourselves or is there a backup solution for this?
It would be nice it Bitwarden offered a way for the Enterprise plan to export an encrypted backup of the entire collection but it doesn’t seem like this is available?
There are 1001 great backup tools already out there, so why does this need to be part of Bitwarden?
Backing up the docker data is sufficient, no?
I think the crux of @PatricF’s point is that you’d be able to export an encrypted backup rather than plain text JSON/CSV.
What do you mean?
If I use Bitwardes own cloud solution I don’t have access to the actual file system to do an actual backup. The only way to export the data is to an unencrypted text-file.
However if I use a self-hosted Bitwarden it makes nightly backups of the MSSQL database which I then can backup myself and I have everything hosted in a machine which I can make a proper backup of.
Having an unencrypted backup is not the problem. You can always encrypt it yourself, then backup that. Just be careful you can decrypt it later
Yes of course I can encrypt it myself and I wouldn’t have a problem with automating this. But if I login as the administrator and make an export, I can only export my “personal” vault and the organizations vault.
I can’t backup each employees vault. The only way to do this would be to login as each user and do an export which is not an option. Or is there a way for an admin to export a users vault?
If I would self-host it I would have a backup of the entire installation even if I wouldn’t be able to easily restore on per user basis I still have the data backed up and can extract it manually if needed.
I might have been a little unclear of what I meant by a backup in my first post.
Good point. Now I got you!
