I was not sure if I should post the topic under “Support” or under “Feature Requests” but I decided to put it under Support.
I am using KeePass and there I have 962 entries (if you search for an empty string you get all entries so here this number is real):
Many entries are logins to websites
But I also have many logins to applications (where I have an auto-type-sequence)
Some entries have multiple auto-type-sequences (like Steam, here I log into the application differently than to the website)
I also have many software licences stored in KeePass
For 17 entries I also stored the 2FA key (TOTP) via the Plugin KeeOTP
Some entries have attached files
Many entries have user-defined fields (custom fields)
Some entries are expired (Expiry Date is in the past), but I want to keep them
I have many user-defined icons for the entries (for folders and entries that have no URL)
I did not try out the import from KeePass yet, but I assume that not all of my features are supported.
I also know that the best way to “import” logins for websites is to log into the website using KeePass and then let Bitwarden store the login as new entry (so also the information about the field names is stored).
But what about the rest of my entries?
Does Bitwarden import the TOTP from KeePass?
The KeeOTP plugin creates a custom field called “otp” and stores the key like “key=xxxxxx” (where xxx is a string value that also can contain “%3d”, whatever that is).
Does Bitwarden import all User-Defined fields from KeePass?
I added fields like “Registration Data” where I have a multi-line text stored.
Does Bitwarden also import the password history?
In KeePass there is a history of changes.
The Plugin HaveIBeenPwnd uses this history to find out when a password has been changed.
Then this plugin looks up the database at https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and tells me what passwords I have not changed after the breach (so what passwords I have to change).
If you do not import the password history then I have to change the passwords of all entries that have an URL manually (so in Bitwarden I have a password change date).
I have 695 entries that have an URL stored, so I would have to change at least these 695 entries).
You see that importing data can mean a lot of work for me.
And I want to avoid this mass of work and hope that Bitwarden has some features that help me.
I just migrated from KeePass myself, so I can answer this.
All custom fields will be migrated
Auto-type isn’t supported
I never used it personally, so I don’t know if it will copy the sequence to a custom field or not
TOTP keys are only migrated as custom fields
You’ll need to manually copy the key from the custom field to the TOTP field
I tested with both KeeOTP and TrayTOTP
Attachments did not migrate at all
Expiration dates did not migrate at all
Expired entries DID migrate, however
No support for custom icons
Folders don’t have icons
Bitwarden doesn’t have a history feature, so that won’t migrate
The “Exposed Passwords” option in the “Tools” menu will tell you which accounts are using known leaked passwords, so there’s something
The “Data Breach Report” is pretty basic, manual search for a single email or username
I also want to note that attachments and TOTP are premium features. I didn’t buy a subscription until after I imported everything from KeePass, so it’s possible the attachments could migrate if you get premium beforehand.
