Relationship ‘links’ between items
- Within BitWarden, it would be helpful if you could ‘link’ items together by forming relationships between them, whether they are for reference, or as a dependency.
- What will this feature do differently? Adds the ability for items to be linked together (relationships formed between them) such as a dependency, or, just for reference.
- What benefits will this feature bring? As a use-case, you may store a Login item in your BitWarden Vault for service that uses a third-party authentication platform (like Google or GitHub). That third-party platform has it’s own separate Login item, but is linked to our new Login item as a dependency. This prevents duplicating data (that can quickly go out of date), and provides the ability to locally keep track of how those logins are being used / what they provide access to.
Example Use Case
I would like to create a reCAPTCHA key for my website and have those details stored securely in my BitWarden Vault:
- I login with my Google Account, and create the reCAPTCHA site key/secret appropriately for my website.
- I create a Login Item (or Secure Note) in BitWarden to store the reCAPTCHA details using new Hidden fields. Note that the username/password fields are not being used in this case, because we authenticated using our existing Google Account, which has it’s own Item inside BitWarden.
- I’d like the ability to create a referential link between these two items in BitWarden. This way, on my reCAPTCHA item, I could link my Google Account as a dependency, so that I know which account it belongs to for future reference.
- Viewing either item will show the relationship between them, so that you can easily click and use/view/edit those items appropriately.
