Save last password for HTTP Auth?

http-auth

#1

Hello,

search didn’t show solutions so I’ll open a thread.

Configuration:

  • Keepass 2.40
  • Kee 2.3.19.1
  • Firefox 62.0 64bit

It seems, when entering a website protected by HTTP-auth (relevant user/pw-creds realized via .htpasswd and .htaccess), Kee doesn’t recognize the auth process and doesn’t offer to save the previously entered credentials. When authorized correctly and logged in properly after typing the creds, clicking the Kee Menu in the status bar yields only the usual three New/Help/Setting entries and not the expected “save last input” on top of those.

When the respective credentials are available in Keepass beforehand (by adding an entry manually), Kee does recognize the http auth stage, opens the http auth dialog and offers to fill in User and PW.

In Settings, all 4 “save entry” checkboxes are checked.

Am I missing some other setting? Is this a known behaviour?

Thanks in advance
Philipp

I’m afraid this feature doesn’t exist in Kee (since Firefox removed the features it depended on about a year ago).

There’s possibly a way to make it work but it might need additional improvements in Firefox and Chrome before it can be done. We’re already tracking the feature request at https://github.com/kee-org/browser-addon/issues/15 but I don’t know if/when I’ll have time to attempt an implementation - feel free to look into it yourself if you know how to program.

In the mean time, you’ll have to manually add HTTP Auth credentials to your KeePass database as you mentioned.

Oh, okay, I didn’t reckon with that. :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for the fast response and valuable information.
