A Passpack API so we can build our own applications and widgets.
Help us plan this. Please let us know what types of applications you have in mind. Or perhaps what systems you’d like to integrate with via the API.
I just had this idea, to make a addon for WHMCS (a popular web hoster billing package) to share passwords internally with staff. This was something I was going to do anyway, but rather than storing in a local db, use passpack API or another web based pass manager's api or secure storage.

My use for API:
after Windows install, we set one-time password ("user must change password on next logon") for local admin (who doesn't have permission for network access), activate Windows license and make system image (for fast recovery with license in case of hardware/software failure).
This password is used to re-join domain/re-setup workstation after restoring from image. But currently these passwords aren't stored very securely. Storing them in passpack would be much better.
We would make native app for iOS and Android to read all password from passpack

I would like to use passpack from the command line. With an API, this would be possible.
Here's one such app: automated remote backups.
We're looking for a new password Management system, but we need to have an API to tie into our existing automated password rotation tools. Passpack has everything we're looking for except the API. Is there anything upcoming, or is the API idea dead?
We have a dashboard that allows our developers generate dev sites.
It would be really nice to have an API for populating all those passwords directly to Passpack.

Any news on this?
We generate customers automatically in our systems and would like to push user + password to passpack."

Better if there is a simple api, or a command line tool written on any language (c, python, ruby, perl, js), capable enough to interface with passpack
Storing private keys would be very useful for me, I use quite a lot of them.
I do this at the moment by copy/paste into notes which do have enough room.
I'd like to be able simply to retrieve passpack records programmatically

I would love to be able to automate adding new password entries using our internal scripts/applications. It would be even better if this can integrate with AD/LDAP as well (to manage group memberships and shares with one central system).

hi, i'd like to integrate google docs to passpack to mass export passwords to passpack
Eugeniu Iacub commented
it woulg be greate to integrate it with synology nas products. i would gladly pay to have my own hoste password manager
We use servers with One Time Passwords. We generate 100 passwords at a time and import them into our current password repository.
How silly is it for us to upload the entire list via a CSV file to passpack's servers which will then encrypt them? The passwords we have are highly sensitive.
An API where we can see the client source to confirm that the passwords are not uploaded to the server in plain text.

The browser on Android is extremely bloated and heavy. I'd like to make a native Android app.
We would need an api to automatically insert ftp or ssh accounts from our hoster (that has an api) in passpack. So we can share easier with our employes.
I run a business which helps customers build IT applications - and need to maintain passwords to dev servers etc of multiple projects and for multiple user types. Use case is:
* Customer launches a project and we provision project management, source code repository, dev AWS server, test AWS server, application frameworks, etc.
* There are a number of passwords needed but for different roles. For example the SSH credentials to servers is for customer and system admin only. Others such as repository access and zend/ phpmySQL admin for developers, etc.
* I want to create a Passpack account for each user that the customer assigns to a project and make accessible the project specific passwords that are appropriate for the role (project owner, system admin, lead developer, etc).
* A passpack API would make this a more reliable process than relying on manual configuration.
Passpack, you should build a highly optimised iOS app, along the lines of 1Password. Their app is great, because you can easily access all your passwords without an internet connection, however they're missing your sharing features, and some of their UI doesn't make sense unless you're in the US. If you don't build it, I will! You're losing market share to an inferior product because you don't have an iOS app, please, built it yourselves before we get a ton of crappy apps that will besmirch your name!
