I’m very happy with the new deep-linking functionality.
But… deeplinking requires the GUID of an item. Of course, I can find the guid in the link when using the webvault. But wouldn’t it be more conventient to actually see the GUID. Or even better: to have a “copy GUID” and “copy deep-link” button in all the BitWarden user interfaces??
Link to an Item | Bitwarden Help & Support
Together with copy, we also need the way to find the item by the GUID in Bitwarden-Web and Desktop applications!
Wow, in current version of Bitwarden Browser extension we can already find items by their uuid:
So the remainder is to detect full urls like
https://vault.bitwarden.com/#/vault?itemId=a566cf4b-f7e2-430b-91f7-aea20076a9f2 and extract the
itemId from there.
And, of course, the main topic feature - Copy link to the item to clipboard.
Re-Posting a solution we’ve used pre-Bitwarden:
We had this exact feature implemented in our old internal password management tool, and it’s a massive barrier for porting over all our internal documentation to Bitwarden. It’s used both for shared passwords in shared wikis, and by users for private passwords in personal notes in OneNote, Evernote, etc. pp.
The workflow we had for the past 8 years was:
each password has an UUID (already available in BW)
all UIs had a “Copy Deep Link” hotkey and context menu item that copied a custom URL sche…
Letting all search bars parse deep links to extract the UUID let us cover all use cases with just a single “Copy Password Link” button/hotkey.
