See and copy the GUID of an item in the user interface

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??

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 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:

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.
