Hi @haneef95 , while we have plans on the roadmap to take our directory-connector to the next level, this would also be a great and likely welcome addition, great idea!


Yes, I’ve been waiting for a little while too for that! I’ve been meaning to get this done, hopefully, it’ll be done soon.

WIP! Looking to make a first iteration PR for feedback soon. :slight_smile:

Does bwdc sync respect the syncConfig->interval in data.json?

Meaning: if bwdc sync was to be executed less than x minutes after the last-sync, would it abort?


@haneef95 as far as I am aware, the desktop/GUI version of BWDC is the only version that syncs at that interval at a minimum. Running the sync manually should sync regardless.

The CLI version requires a scheduled bwdc sync via cron or similar

Thanks @tgreer

It’s just a bit of challenge when implementing a wrapper to cater for multiple profiles:

Containerise (docker image) v1 ready for Alpha testing!

This is now complete and available for alpha testing:

Can be tested by executing the following instructions on bash

git clone
git checkout containerise_v1
cd bitwarden-directory-connector
export ENV="dev"

This will:

  1. Build the image with the v2.9.8 of bwdc and the relevant wrappers (scan for profiles and sync profile)
  2. docker-compose up -d with a relative directory as a docker volume for the bwdc sync profiles
  3. create a sync profile on: ./data/bwdc-profiles with the name syncprofile_1 (sub directory for the JSON bwdc data-file

To test with your own sync profile, just create a new directory in bwdc-profiles, and place the data.json file with the appropriate config.

Happy testing! :smiley:


Pull request submitted, looking forward to it being merged and published

Hey guys,

Any timeline to review the above PR?


Thanks for the ping!

The most of the team is heads-down prepping for a release next week, so it may be a couple of weeks before review is complete.


I see, thanks for the update.
