I could not find any way yet. Any help would be appreciated.
You have to specify the keyfile when you open the kdbx file.
If I understand you correctly your would like to be able to have the app remember the keyfile, but not the password? This is probably the same as https://github.com/authpass/authpass/issues/123
Or do you mean changing the keyfile (and master password) for a kdbx file?
I am new to kbdx
I am asking how to set the key file for the first time for a kbdx database.
When I create a new database , I set a master password, which is used to unlock the database every time.
But how do I set the key file for that database for the first time ?
@hpoul I don’t mean changing. I am asking how to set a key file for the first time ?
ok got it. (changing and setting the first time is kind of the same thing for me ) Right now this is not supported directly, unfortunately. https://github.com/authpass/authpass/issues/46
btw. how would you like to set it - do you have a file you would like to use as a keyfile, or would you like to generate a random new one?
(i also fear a bit about usability, some people are really confused by the concept of a “keyfile” - some users have even referenced the
kdbx file as their keyfile not sure how to make this obvious to reduce friction. Or maybe hiding it behind an “advanced” button or similar)
I would currently love to use an existing file as key file.
From the docs of keepass I learnt that any file ( of common mime types ) can be used as a key file. Just that the data in the file should be random.
And the concept of generating a keyfile is also cool. That would ensure a high security.
