What is an export?

An export is used for extracting the data saved in the MSSQL database. Both selective (manual) and automated system tasks can extract information form Password Safe in this manner.

The export function is accessed via the Main menu/Export. There are two fundamental types of export – the WebViewer export and the export wizard. However, the latter is divided into four subcategories.

The WebViewer export creates a HTML file protected by a password. In contrast, the export wizard creates an open and unprotected .csv file.


Permissions are used to define whether a record can be exported or not. Various protective mechanisms can be applied. Restrictions can be placed on either the record itself and also via user rights

  • The permissions for the record: The permissions for the record define whether a record can be exported

In this example, the marked role IT employee does not have the required permissions to export the record. In contrast, the IT manager does have the required permissions. In addition, the administrator possesses all rights, including the right to export.

  • The user right “Export”: A user right is available in the “General” category that gives a user the right to export. If this right has not been granted, no form of export can generally be performed.
