Not able to view all collection items using CLI as an admin

Request:
Bitwarden CLI to support allowing Admins manage collections similar to the experience on the Admin Console. This will mightily help the administration of org-collections via automation.

Context:
As an admin, I am able to view all collection items via the Admin Console but I am unable to do the same using the CLI. With the CLI, I’m only able to view the collection items that my user has been granted access.

How to reproduce:

Experience via Bitwarden Admin console
Say there are 2 users - test-user and test-admin

  • As test-user, create a collection “test-collection”, and a couple of items under it. Then edit the access config ensuring that test-admin is not granted any permission.
  • As test-admin, go to the Bitwarden Admin console to view the “test-collection” and its items.
  • Outcome: test-admin can view items of “test-collection” via the Admin console

Experience via Bitwarden CLI:
On the terminal,

  • Log in as test-admin
  • Confirm that test-admin can list org-collections, and the output includes “test-collection”
  • Fetch “test-collection” collection id and attempt to list items under this collection e.g. by running the command below:
❯ ./tmp/bw list items --collectionid "$(./tmp/bw list org-collections --organizationid "$ORG_ID" | jq -r '.[] | select(.name == "test-collection") | .id')"  | jq

[]
  • Outcome: An empty list is returned

I suspect the CLI only gives the password-manager console view of collections. But it seems the lack of support for admin tasks via cli is a huge hole yet to be addressed.
