"Tags", or maybe rather "No Tags"


Recommended Posts

Dear Enpass community, dear Enpass developers

I'm pretty new to Enpass, but so far I really like it!

When I recently inserted my first passwords into Enpass, I decided to add «Tags» to all my entries. With that, I want to make sure to find entries later on, whose title I may possibly not remember, since I need them very rarely, but hopefully I will still know to which of my activities (=Tags) they belong.

Now my password database fills up noticeably, especially thanks to the automatic password saving in my browsers, but as far as I can see, the browser dialogue lacks the ability to add Tags to new entries.

Yet I still want to keep my database tidy. It’s actually okay for me to manually add Tags to automatic entries later on. But for this I miss the possibility to filter out all entries in Enpass, which have No Tags yet, in order to assign the appropriate Tags to them.

Is such a filter already planned or would that be a feature, that could be realized in the foreseeable future?

Kind regards

Thank you!

I also just started migraring to Enpass, and was just in the process of writing the same post.

To use Enpass tags, we really need an Untagged filter to ensure there is a posibility to organize the passwords, and makes cleanup easier when "groups" of passwords needs to be removed.

Also i would really like a generate password option when you add new sites in the Enpass assistant.

Hi @andym

We forwarded this request to our developers and would like to inform you that they have investigated its feasibility. This feature request may be included in future Enpass releases even though we have not yet received any specific version updates. Your support and patience are greatly appreciated.

Here's a workaround that will yield untagged items.   Works on platforms that have a command line interface where the jq tool is available (e.g. MacOS, Windows, Linux).   The following is what I did in a MacOS zsh terminal to find my untagged items.   I happen to have jq version 1.6 installed.

  1. Install the jq command line tool if you don't already have it installed (https://jqlang.github.io/jq)
  2. File/Export in Enpass
  3. Select .json format, let's say you put it in a file called items.json
  4. In a command shell, cd to the directory where items.json appears
  5. Run the following command (note that if you're using a different shell, the syntax for the stuff outside the jq command might vary a bit:
  6. cat items.json | jq '.items[] | { title, folders } | if .folders != null then del(.) else . end | .title ' | grep -v '^null$'

This will yield a list of item titles -- but not just any old item titles, it'll be only those that have no tags. :-)

And don't forget to delete items.json after you're done!  There's lots of sensitive information in there that is exposed while the file exists.
