Bulk collection migration

Feature name

  • Bulk collection migration

Feature function

This will allow you to tick all the check boxes of entries you want to move, and then move them to another collection using the cog menu.

We need this feature. Without this feature, making structure changes as a big organisation is very tedious.

Please, implement this!


We really really need this feature, it can be a big stop if an user try to migrate to bitwarden


Bulk item / collection management is under dev currently :slight_smile:


I just literally search if this feature exists. This would be really great to have.

Migrating over from Last Pass here. Really need this so I can add all of the logins to the Default Collection (it migrated in into a collection called “Unassigned”). But also, to disperse the logins for my kids into their respective collections.

Found on the github that apparently I could have chosen a group when I did the import - but I did not see that anywhere. And now, it’s already done, so I am not going back…

Thank you for your post!

Feature name

  • Name
    Mass Re-assign of organization secrets to different collection/s.

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently?

Similar to a personal vault where you can mass assign secrets to an organization which, asks you to select a collection it should be in. Users should have the ability to adjust the secrets collection for secrets that already exist within the organization. Currently, you can do this one at a time (there is no select */mv to collection) but, there is no ability to mass re-assign. For example, if I wanted to re-assign all secrets attached to specific email address I should be able to 1. query for the email, 2. Select All within the organization vault and 3. move to new/additional collection/s.

  • What benefits will this feature bring?

Take a re-assign task that takes hours to a few seconds.

  • Remember to add a tag for each client application that will be affected
    #vault #organizations #app:all

We are moving from defunct MyKi absolutely need this feature. Import then export and edit then re-import is not a very sensible work around even if it saves my fingers.

Feature name

  • Bulk add/edit/remove items between collections

Feature function

  • It’ll avoid having to painstakingly assign a collection to each item (which already a 3 or 4 step process).
  • Users should be able to select items in bulk and assign them to collections
  • Users should be able to select items in bulk and remove them from collections
  • There should be an option here:
    Like so (currently only available on individual items):

This seems like such a basic companion to the Collections feature.

We’re running BitWarden as a technical trial, having migrated over all our data from LastPass. We’d have really appreciated the ability to quickly bulk transfer items between Collections, so that we can assign different users to Groups and figure out permissions. It is utterly tedious having to do this one by one, then having the page refresh each time. Especially after having ticked the boxes for all the relevant ones, only to find out the functionality doesn’t exist only after.

A bit frustrating to be honest!

Thanks @janbaykara, the team is working on this as we speak!


@dwbit Thanks a lot for this information - I am checking every few months waiting for exactly this feature as it is simply impossible to manually set hundreds of passwords. This bulk collection assignment is an absolute must in a professional environment, people are asking for it for years now.
How long will your team work on this?

An ETA on this would be great, yes.

Now it’s 27 days later since the last post in this thread - any updates on when bulk migration feature will be available so we can start using Bitwarden productively?
Thanks a lot!

Hey all, as the team continues to build out this functionality, we will share more information as it becomes available.
