Today we released Build 5638 of Passwordstate, which includes a new feature where you can clone a Password Folder, and any Folders or Password Lists nested beneath it. This feature is very handy for keeping a consistent structure for storing all your passwords.
To clone a folder, you first need to click on it in the Navigation Tree, then click on the ‘Folder Options’ button at the top of the screen, and then you will see the ‘Clone Folder’ link. From here you have the following options available to you:
- Specify the new name of the folder to be cloned
- Choose whether you want to clone all Folders and Password Lists nested below the chosen folder, or just clone Folders only
- Choose what permissions you would like to apply to the new Folders and Password Lists – either clone the current permissions, apply permissions just for yourself, or don’t apply any permissions at all
When you have finished cloning the folder, it will place the structure in the root of the Navigation Tree. Standard processing occurs when cloning folders i.e. appropriate audit events are logged, and email notifications are sent informing users they have access to one or more new Password Lists. We’ve also provided a ‘Save & Clone Again’ button, so you can quickly repeat the process. Below is a screenshot from version 6 of Passwordstate, showing the options available to you.
Note: Cloning Password Lists will not clone any of the passwords contained within them – only settings, customisations and permissions will be cloned.
We hope you like this new feature, and please leave us some comments if you like.
