Import from KeePass

Import KeePass v2 Entries into the Identity Vault.

KeePass Password Safe is very popular free client side password management tool which is efficient in managing personal accounts and passwords in a secure way; however, it does not scale well for multi-user or corporate use.

If you are planning the transition from KeePass to Access Manager, then our built-in utility provides an easy method to preserve entries, group hierarchy and smart detection of entry types.

For Import of the objects from CSV, KeePass, PuTTY or Remote Desktop Connection Manager files to your Records you can use Dry Run.

 

To Import a KeePass v2 Export into Access Manager:

  1. Create your KeePass version 2 export using its native Export option. When exporting, you may either export the entire Database or a selected Group, use the format KeePass XML (2.x).
