Import CSV to correct customized template

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just installed Enpass and played a little. Looked nice so far.

So, I created my 10 categories, each with a template, where I added all the fields and separators. The templates look nice and work fine.

Then I wanted to import my 2324 items from Excel. I did not manage this. The template is not properly taken, so it means I have to work on each item, which is impossible.

With the pre-formatted CSV files (https://www.enpass.io/support/kb/general/how-can-i-import-my-data-saved-in-the-excel-file-to-enpass/) I can add the standard categories/templates. But I want to import to my templates, so I have the structure right.

With the "Miscellaneous" CSV I get all the field names right, but the field types are missing and the separater titles are also missing. So, for example most of my entries have the old password added is a custom field. But this field is after the import not hidden as it is imported as text. Even when moving the item to the right category the tempelte is not applied, it just appeared in the right category.

So I have the following question:

1. How can I move an item to another category and apply the template, that all field are in the proper format (e.g. password, multiline, hidden,...)?

2. Is there an pre-formatted CSV where I can add my own category/template (e.g. "category, username, email-address, password, website, comment, tag, note")?  

3. Is there a way to set up pre-defined templates for my customized categories?

4. I noticed, when exporting data from Enpass as CSV my proper category is also exported. So it should be possible to import the same CSV file format. How is this possible?

Thanks,

Roland

 Did you have the same name for the field types in the CSV and the template you created?

 You'll have to edit the CSV column type as "Password" to rectify this. Don't use the custom field in the column header of the CSV.

The template of an item would not change on moving the item(s) to a particular category. While you create an item, you have to choose a specific template that fits the bill or you will have to edit it later.

No. You can, however, use the Miscellaneous CSV, edit the columns similar to the template's field type and then import the CSV.

Similar to the above, edit the CSV column header in line with the field type you want. You can also refer to the user manual page for additional info.
