Change "type" of item

I also need this…Hoping some devs are seeing this thread.

Yes please, I just moved from 1Password and I have to change many items type manually.
Adding this feature will help people like me a lot.

New here, thanks! First post, and this, tbh, is one of the most important features missing, along with drag and drop into folders. Is there any commitment to do this?

Hi @fredu, our current roadmap is available here. You can also vote for the drag and drop functionality here.

Cheers, but this has been floating around for 4 years now it seems. Do I still need to vote?

The roadmap is subject to change but does show our current trajectory. Currently you can use the Bitwarden Web Vault to perform bulk actions such as selecting and moving multiple items.

Yup - imported from KeePass. I like Bitwarden, but I don’t like re-typing. Pleeease can we have a type change feature.

With respect to 1Password migrations, all my 1Password types have been retained in Bitwarden.

Strongly support this feature request. Would make using Bitwarden substantially easier.

Yes, could make import from KeePass much easier, and at least updating what has been imported.

The currently available import function does allow for the item Type to be specified for each imported item — either using the "type" field in a .json file, or using the third or second column (for individual or organizational vaults, respectively) in a .csv file.

It seems to me that the issues reported by most users in this thread could be solved by conditioning the data exported from other password managers before importing into Bitwarden.

I think the problem for the larger listeners here is they did not know you should go into a .csv or .json file prior to the import. I came from Blackberry Password Keeper and would like to be able to switch the “type” of saved data to Card from Login too. But after one uses Bitwarden for a few months, and you then find out this file fix should have been done several months ago, it does nothing for the user. The other solution is to start over, making the changes to the .csv/.json files, which no one will do. Too much time invested getting the App up and running plus ironing out other kinks of Bitwarden so the data is like it was in the old program/app.

You wouldn’t necessarily have to start over from completely from scratch, but you could potentially export your vault, make changes to item types by editing the .json, purge your vault, and re-import the vault. The main issue with this work-around is that if you have attachments, those would have to be individually downloaded and re-uploaded (although third party utilities to automate the process are also available).

A very useful feature for migrating passwords from another service!
Please implement this!

Well, 5 years later I’d like to say I’m looking for this feature as well.

Considering the lack of movement on this after some years it may be a little pointless but I’m gonna add some weight to this feature request too. It doesn’t seem like it should be a big deal to implement but would definitely help a lot for certain workflows.

I am also relatively new and also imported from 1 Password.

I do not know how to make the change requested, but my cards came over as cards and logins as logins.

I know there was a couple options for file format extension, perhaps the one I used was different than yours. Not sure if that’s why, just a thought.

If this just happened and you still have access to the old account and nothing is changed in the old account and nothing recent in Bitwarden, perhaps you could import in the extension you didn’t use?

A sad ‘+1’. There’s not way to re-categorize after the fact of migration.

Same here. Kind of frustrating you cannot change something as simple as that. Makes you think to revert to your previous password manager. Vote +1

Edit item type, e.g. change from any of login, card, secure note, identity to a different type from any of login, card, secure note, identity. Should be a core feature. Can’t believe it’s not available.
