Importing from Open Intentions OI Safe

Is there a way to import my 1,000 entries currently in OI Safe into Bitwarden. The only information I was able to find involved conditioning CSV files, which is just did not understand!

Thanks in advance for any information you may be able to give me.

Hi @howard and welcome to the community.

As you did not post a link to the product or provide an example output it’s hard to gauge where you are having issue. Conditioning a csv-file is definitely possible and not too hard, assuming you know how to open the file, with for example, Excel and rename/re-order columms.

Is the product you are speaking of, possibly this one: OI Safe ?

If it is, then it should be fairly easy to condition a file, as the product is also open-source and I found the exported headers here.

Category is probably some kind of folder but could also be a item type (login, identity, etc).
The other columns just need to be renamed:

  • description β†’ name
  • website β†’ login_uri
  • username β†’ login_username
  • password β†’ login_password

and re-ordered as described on our help-page I linked above.

Please let me know, if that worked for you.

If it did, we could include my instructions on the help page.

Kind regards,

Thank you soooo much for the help.

I was able to export csv file from OI Safe, change header names as you indicated, added a couple of columns that were not present in the original file, reordered columns as the Bitwarden Sample Export file showed, converted this file to a text cvs file, and was able to import it into bitwarden.

Only issue was that 8 of the 1,000+ entries contained notes over 10,000 characters, so the original file would not upload. I cut these rows out of the file, and the import took less than 3 seconds.

Once again, thanks for the help!
