One Drive shared folder

Post by meobeou »

I am attempting to use KyPass with OneDrive shared folders.

I have User A and User B both with personal OneDrive accounts.

User A has configured a shared folder and placed a keepass file in it.

User A enables OneDrive support on their iPhone and selects the folder. This works as expected. KeePass files can be read.

User A then shares this folder with User B. User B adds the folder to their OneDrive and can access it fine via the OneDrive application.

User B then enables OneDrive support on KyPass and can select the folder (and see the kdbx files when setting up).

However once User B adds the OneDrive source, none of the kdbx files come up on the main Kypass screen, and it continues to prompt to add a file or source.

How can User B access the shared OneDrive folder and read/update the kdbx files?

Thank you

Is there any update on this issue? I am having the exact same problem. For whatever reason the app does not find kbdx files in a shared OneDrive folder that can otherwise be read and modified in other apps.

Thank you

Came here to say that I too am in the same situation; I have shared the .KDBX file with my wife through my personal OneDrive; she has Edit access to both the file and the folder. On her iPhone, she can use KyPass can navigate to the folder, can even 'select' the file when browsing for a folder but then when the app goes back to the page where we should see the file to log into - "No file found".


The workaround is to use the OneDrive app and copy the file to KyPass but then that does not allow for updates to the password file as the file needs to be manually refreshed / re-downloaded again...

The original post is a word for word copy of my post here..

Still waiting for an update from devs.. I posted this in November last year. I regret purchasing this app.
