In using Custom Fields users can define their own type of data to each password entry: for example, creating a field called "Email" which can be each added to each password entry.

Create Custom Fields

Steps to create a new custom field are as follows:

  1. From the main password server page, click the 'Actions' button of the password that you would like to add a custom field to, and select 'Edit'. A pop-up dialog will appear.

  2. In the pop-up dialog, expand the section labelled "Custom Fields"

  3. Select "Add new record".

    • A new blank row will be added where you can give enter a name and value for the custom field by clicking in the appropriate cell.

      • Name is required

      • Value can be left empty if desired. 

    • Click Save button to save changes

  4. You can now add columms for your custom field into the folder view.
    Note: the columns which appear are specific to the credentials contained in the folder and must be user configured to display.

    • Now they will be visible in the column lists: 



 

Delete Custom Fields

  1. From the main password server page, click the 'Actions' button of the password that you would like to add a custom field to, and select 'Edit'. A pop-up dialog will appear.

  2. In the pop-up dialog, expand the section labelled "Custom Fields"
  3. Select the 'Delete' button next to the Custom Field that you would like to delete, and 'Yes' in the additional warning dialog that pops up.  The deletions are saved with the button at the bottom of the dialog:

 

Using Custom Fields in KeePass

You can add and delete Custom Fields from within the KeePass client as well.

For more information, see "Custom Strings" under the Advanced heading at:

Limitations

  • Currently Custom Fields in KeePass for Pleasant do not yet provide the additional security of KeePass' "In-Memory Protection"

 

Custom Field Templates

In the coming future, Custom Fields will have a more robust/advanced method of templating standardized fields/entries.

For now, it is possible with some workarounds:

  1. Create a "Template" Folder
  2. Create a Credential Entry or Entries with the desired Custom Field(s)

Then, when using one of these templates:

  1. Copy the Credential "Template"
  2. Make your modifications, and
  3. Move it to the desired location.
