One feature I love in KyPass Companion is the magic combo ⌥⌘K.
Do you know it ?
It allows you to quickly open a website you have saved in KyPass Companion or even open a ssh or vnc session if you used to correct url in your entry.
It’s a big time-saver for me.
Obviously, you could change the shortcut but you understand the main idea.
Do you know that KyPass Companion could import a dynamic kdb/kdbx database or .csv file in your kdbx (KeePass v2) database ?
- Select the folder where you want to insert/update the exported entry.
- Go to File/Create Import Task
- Give a name for your task.
- Select the URL of the kdb/csv file or select directly the file from the file browser.
For the .csv file, the format is:
- Line 1: <fieldname>;<fieldname>;.. with fieldname is title, username, password, url or any name for custom attributes.
- Line 2 and others, your values separated by a semicolon
- Enter the password and/or the keyfile if the import file is a kdb database.
- Check the ‘add to task’ checkbox. It will save the task in the folder you have selected previously in step 1.
- Check ‘update entries’ checkbox if you want that, when then task is launched, the entries are update and not created each time.
- Check ‘ignore groups’ checkbox if you don’t want to keep the tree in the imported kdb database.
- Click on the ‘run’ button to do the first import.
The task is now created.
Each time you want to run again the task, go in View/Display task list and select the task you want to run.
More tips soon (if you like it!)
When you add the URL to your database then click it from within KyPass the username/password fields can be populated by long press in the field. This allows you to stay in KyPass and be able to paste both username and password without app switching. Brilliant!
KyPass support various URI schemes in the URL field (http/https internal and all other schemes in their corresponding iPhone app)
iSSH have URI scheme support !
By typing <username> or <password> in the http field, <username> or <password> will be replaced by their value.
It means that you could enter ssh://<username>:<password>@example.com in one of your url field and KyPass will open iSSH with a authenticated session on example.com.
