  1. Hi my friends of Passwordstate In my test-environment on (almost) every update of Passwordstate I get the following error: - Stopping Passwordstate Windows Service..... - Download started..... - Extracting new files..... - Installing new files..... - Upgrade error detected - The process cannot access the file 'c:\inetpub\Passwordstate\hosts\gateway\SparkGateway.exe' because it is being used by another process. - Method = CopyNewFiles Please check/test your settings on the screen Administration -> Backups and Upgrades -> Settings button. There is also full documentation and troubleshooting steps in the Security Administrators Manual under the Help menu - refer to the section "Backups and Upgrades". This error is not really an issue. After that I get logged out and after log in again I get the step 2 of the update and everything works as expected. I’m just wondering if this is a known error? Does anybody else already got this error? I already excluded the whole Passwordstate folder from my anti-virus scanning activities... All the best, Fabian

    Browser extension issues since recent update

    Hi Lee Thank you very much for the explanation! Regards, Fabian
  5. Hi all, In the last days I had issues with different websites to fill the form. Usually it helped to update the id or name fields, because the website changed the tags. It would be great if the browser would recognize when I enter my credentials manually on a website (where the website is already existing in Passwordstate) that it already exists and would ask me if I would like to update this Passwordstate record to match the new field tags. Also if I logon manually to a website, where the website is already existing in Passwordstate, and I use the same username, but a different password, the browser extension could recognize this and ask me if I like to update the password. I general I would wish that the browser extension would be a bit more userfriendly, for me it's fine to inspect a website and update the tag fields in Passwordstate, but for the most of our users it's a litte bummer, they don't get it. If someone else from the community has any suggestions how to make it more userfriendly from his experience, don't hesitate to share your thoughts. Thanks to all other people in the community for a "+1" reply and thanks to Clickstudios for putting my request to the queue of feature requests :-) All the best, Fabian

    Browser extension issues since recent update

    Hi all, In the last days I also struggeled with some websites about the auto filling. For me it helped to remove the credential from Passwordstate, re-login to the extension and then login again to the website to let the browser extension catch the credentials and add it to Passwordstate. I had some websites where they changed the id or name tag in the html. If this was the case I also could update the browser field tag according to this video: I'm right, that the browser extension (now) does work with eighter the id or name tag? From the text in the "browser form fields" tab, this is not really clear to me as it says "names" in the text and "ID" on the fields. All the best, Fabian

    Can WinAPI be used via a Linux shell script?

    Hi Habskilla To create the REST JSON Body I always go for the following approach: First create a PowerShell object and convert it then to a JSON-String. The big advantage of that is, that you don't have to care about any special characters, escaping and stuff like that. $Body = @{ FolderName = $Name Description = $Description NestUnderFolderID = $ParentFolderID APIKey = $global:PasswordStateSystemWideAPIKey } $jsonBody = $Body | ConvertTo-Json $PasswordstateURLFull = "$($global:PasswordstateURL)/api/folders" $result = Invoke-Restmethod -Method POST -Uri $PasswordstateURLFull -ContentType "application/json; charset=utf-8" -Body $jsonBody The response I get is then stored in $result and can be accessed directly: $output = $result.FolderID If you have the answer as a string you also could use for the following approach: $responseObject = $responseJsonString | ConvertFrom-Json If you take a look the KeePassImport-Script you'll find some more examples. All the best, Fabian

    Key storage

    Hi Nathan In Passwordstate you can also upload and attach documents to a passwordlist. Probably this could be a way for you to store the key files. But I'm not sure if uploaded documents are getting encrypted in the database (probably @support could help out here whit this question). Best regards, Fabian

    New import KeePass Powershell script 2018

    Hi Khurram You could try to import to a different folder. Or you also could try to use the WinAPI version, but this one creates private passwordlists. You would need to convert them or change the script to create shared passwordlists. Best regards, Fabian

    New import KeePass Powershell script 2018

    Hi Khurram Also other users are experiencing the same error and therefore I'm guessing that it's kind of a bug. I reported back here. Best regards, Fabian

    Issues adding passwords via webapi

    Hi all, Currently I think that there's some kind of bug with this REST method, because I can't see any issues with the script and also other users are reporting the same error. In our company about one month ago one user wannted to use the import script from KeePass, which is using the WinAPI and we got the following error when the REST call tried to add passwords to a Passwordlist. After we stared exactly the same import with another user account it worked fine. The KeePass import script with the WinAPI creates private passwordlists and uses the loggedin users account (instead of shared with the script which uses the Anonymous-API with the Key). Best regards, Fabian
