Import Secrets

There is a menu option: Importing secrets at the upper right part of the screen (under user menu):


On the next popup window we need to choose if we want to import to a default Imported folder, or we want to choose an Existing folder instead.

If we select the Default Imported folder mode, then the imported items will be added to that 'Imported' folder.

By choosing the second option, we need to specify to which group we want to perform the action.


In the next popup we need to hit the 'FIND' button, and upload our excel sheet (preparted for importing purpose). When we are ready, simple click on the 'Import' button.


Supported file-formats:

  • LastPass, KeePast export 

WARNING: The auto-pwd-change option will be enabled on all of the imported accounts!

WE RECOMMEND not to turn on the Automatic pwd change option in Padmin, when we are only at the pilot phase of PassMan configuration. (Padmin / System Settings / Auto pwd change)

The Target-type represents the type of the target. This defines the way for PassMan how to synchronise the target's data.

The possible target types: Linux, Windows, Store-Only, CiscoIOS, Solaris

The Target defines the target name itself. This could be DNS name, or a regular IP address.

The Account field contains the name of the user account.

The Password field should contain the user account's password

The Group_path value includes the group name or 'path' (Parent/Sub group structure) where the target is located. Folder names to be separated with ' / ' signal.

If the marked group (or 'group path') is not existed: it will be created during the import. In case of group (path) is not defined: destination will be the default group we have set at Importing feature.

We can leave comments in the Description field.

URL field makes us able to store URL link there.

KeePass / LastPass compatibility:

PassMan has been developed the way to accept KeePass and LastPass export tables as well.

The original column names (of the source table) can be accepted by PassMan (by changing their name in the background).

If we don't use all of the colums: we definitely needs to have the 2 obligatory fields for PassMan.

In case of KeepPass table: Notes and Title columns are mandatory (for PassMan to 'translate' them)

In LastPass tables the Extra and Name columns should be definitely kept.

KeePass → PassMan values:



> Translation by PassMan

Notes >Target_type
Title >Target
Password >Password
Group >Group_path
Notes >Description

LastPass → PassMan values:



> Translation by PassMan
Extra >Target_type
Name >Target
Username >Account
Password >Password
Grouping >Group_path
Extra >Description

KeePass original table example: (Download: HERE)


LastPass original table example: (Download: HERE)


So the information about target type is essential, needs to be filled out the way PassMan can recognise each type.

Hence LastPass and KeePass export files does not have 'Target type' or 'Type' columns, we need to use the Notes column (at KeePass) and Extra column (at LastPass): for storing target type information.

In this case the comments ('Notes', 'Extra' field details) from the source table will be lost!

If we want to to keep the original comments (extra fields): The column names of the table should be modified!

Source tables with extended columns

We need to create an additional Target_type column, and type information should be filled out for each account.

Finally the rest column names should be modified as marked below:

Case of KeePass:

Group → Group_path,

Title → Target,

Username → Account,


Case of LastPass:

Grouping → Group_path,

Name → Target,

Username → Account,

ATTENTION: Automatic password change is enabled for imported user accounts!

It is RECOMMENDED that you disable Automatic Password Change during the implementation phase of the system (Padmin/System Settings/Automatic Reset).

For manual import file creation, the PassMan sample files are available ITT.


Each account needs to have a UNIQUE NAME belonging to a target. 

The 'headline' of the table should be placed at the very first row of the excel.

Column / field names should follow the patterns detailed in this wiki page.
