I made a bit of a silly mistake and forgot the password of the cloud bitwarden account, because I never use it anymore, having switched to selfhosted.
The issue is, that the selfhosted license needed renewing, and because I couldn’t log into the cloud account I couldn’t download the new license file.
Anyway support have been great at deleting the cloud account, creating a new one and transferring my license over - great - the issue is that I cannot download a new license key because it’s saying my license key isn’t valid - presumably because it’s no longer associated with the account. Okay, annoying.
So I can easily create a new installation id/key - but I’m worried that changing an existing installations installation id or key is going to cause issues? I don’t know what the purpose of the id and key is, does it have any role in the encryption algorithm, if so changing it would not enable me to get into my data anymore.
Can someone explain the purpose of the installation id and key, and if it’s safe to change on an existing installation?
The annoying thing is, I can do a plain text backup of my data fine, as I have full access to my self hosted instance, but all the organisation data is locked because the license has expired, so I can’t backup that…
