1password import only partially completed

Recommended Posts


I am moving from 1Password 4.6.2

From the File menu, I choose Export, choose 1PIF format, then put it in a new directory on its own and name it "data.1pif"

It confirms it has exported all 465 of my passwords.

In Enpass, I choose File, Import, 1Password, then point it at the directory that I put data.1pif in.

It confirms it has imported 249 passwords.

So it has failed to import around half of my passwords and hasn't given any errors or reasons why this would be so. Looking at the Enpass vault, I can indeed identify many passwords that are simply missing.

This looks like it has already been reported at 

 but the response there only deals with the "no title" issue (which isn't the problem for me), it does not address the issue of a large number of passwords not being imported at all.

Hey @davidc,

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

We have tested this issue in our lab and were you unable to reproduce it. However, one possible reason for the problem you are facing might be because of the fact that Enpass doesn't import trashed data from 1password 1pif. 1Password exports vault data as well as trashed data when you try to export all the data in Pif format. But in Enpass we don't import trashed items. I would request you to check if there are items existing in the trash folder? If so please move it to the main vault and then export the data. Also, please let me know on the category of items that are lost so that we can investigate further.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Hi Anshu,


I have 13 items in Trash so there are still 452 active logins exported. Everything is a Login item, no credit cards or anything.

I have attached some screenshots below but of course I have had to obfuscate some details on a public forum:


249 items imported (the additional 3 are new items I created directly in Enpass, making 252 total):


You can see for example that AAAAAA was not imported.

It looks normal in 1password:


From my perspective, it looks pretty similar to BBBBBB which was imported successfully:


Both have their username and password fields identified, so I don't know what the difference is, or why one is imported and the other isn't.

Here is the JSON from the 1PIF file for both of these entries too (I have obfuscated all sensitive fields with "xxx"):

***xxx[a uuid]***
{"keyID":"xxx[a hex string]","locationKey":"AAAAAA","typeName":"webforms.WebForm","location":"AAAAAA/login","uuid":"xxx[a hex string]","createdAt":1414531293,"title":"AAAAAA","securityLevel":"SL5","openContents":{"autosubmit":"default"},"updatedAt":1414531294,"contentsHash":"xxx[a short hex string]","secureContents":{"fields":[{"name":"login.User","value":"xxx[my username]","id":"loginform-user","type":"T","designation":"username"},{"name":"login.Pass","value":"xxx[my password]","id":"loginform-password","type":"P","designation":"password"}],"htmlAction":"AAAAAA/Login","htmlName":"loginform","htmlMethod":"post","URLs":[{"url":"AAAAAA/login"}]}}

***xxx[same uuid as above]***
{"keyID":"xxx[same hex string as above]","locationKey":"BBBBBB","typeName":"webforms.WebForm","location":"BBBBBB/weblogin.htm","uuid":"xxx[a different hex string]","createdAt":1522174876,"title":"","securityLevel":"SL5","openContents":{"autosubmit":"default","usernameHash":"xxx[a long hex string]"},"updatedAt":1522174876,"txTimestamp":1522174876,"contentsHash":"xxx[a different short hex string]","secureContents":{"htmlForm":{"htmlMethod":"LB1"},"fields":[{"designation":"username","value":"xxx[my username]","id":";opid=__0","name":"sUserName","type":"T"},{"designation":"password","value":"xxx[my password]","id":";opid=__1","name":"sSysPass","type":"P"},{"name":"btnOk","id":";opid=__2","value":"Login","type":"B"}],"URLs":[{"url":"BBBBBB/weblogin.htm"}]}}


Hope this helps track down the issue. I'm surprised it isn't a more common problem as it's happening to fully half my logins!

Have you had any luck tracking down the problem please? I am having to keep 1password around because I can't afford to lose half my passwords; that defeats the point of a password manager.
