SimpleLogin has a feature called “Include website address in one-click alias creation on browser extension” in it’s setting which when enabled will cause all alias generated in simplelogin extension to include the website name. For example an alias created for
example.com will be [email protected]
I have that setting enabled in simplelogin, and it works as intended with the official simplelogin extension, but not with bitwarden extension/clients.
This is particularly helpful feature and I would love to have this functionality in bitwarden clients and extension.
After a bit of searching from simplelogin api here is what I got
prefix_suggestion: string. Suggestion for the alias prefix. Usually this is the website name extracted from hostname. If no hostname, then the prefix_suggestion is empty.
A client side option can be provided to enable this feature.

There is a similar issue for Fastmail aliases, and this is treated as a bug. A Bug report has been opened on GitHub:
06:52PM - 10 Nov 22 UTC
### Steps To Reproduce
1. obtain Fastmail API for BW client
2. add or edit BW
3. create or replace "Username":
Options: "Forwarded Email Address
4. click "Regenerate Username" icon
5. Confirm receipt of Fastmail Masked Email address
6. Log into Fastmail account .
7. Go to "Settings" | "Masked Email"
8. Locate the maske email address generated above
9. Observe that "Description" field is empty
### Expected Result
Fastmail should receive the item "name" from BW client. Name should appear with the generated Masked Email address.
### Actual Result
BW does not send, and Fastmail does not receive the BW item "name". The "Description" field for the generated Masked Email address remains empty.
### Screenshots or Videos
### Additional Context
Problem confirmed on current BW Linux, iOS, iPadOS and MacOS clients.
### Operating System
### Operating System Version
Linux thinkpad 5.13.13-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Aug 26 20:34:21 UTC 2021 x86_64 GNU/Linux, MacOS Big Sur 11.7.1
### Installation method
### Build Version
Version 2022.10.1 Shell 19.0.8 Renderer 102.0.5005.148 Node 16.14.2 Architecture x64
### Issue Tracking Info
- [X] I understand that work is tracked outside of Github. A PR will be linked to this issue should one be opened to address it, but Bitwarden doesn't use fields like "assigned", "milestone", or "project" to track progress.
Perhaps you can add your observations about Simplelogin there, unless you want to open a separate bug report.
It seems that bitwarden does not send the name and the prefix field
(Optional) name: alias name
If would be amazing if bitwarden could send the prefix and the name to simplelogin while creating an alias.

Well, I would suggest making this either a
Feature Request or a Bug Report if you want something to happen.
