In the new version of Passwork, we have completely redesigned the System settings. They are now divided into three sections:
Global — organization settings that determine the operations of most of the Passwork functions
Default — the values of the settings that will be used if no other custom settings are specified
Custom — settings that can be set for individual users and roles
Now you can set up different interface languages, configure authorization methods, and enable mandatory two-factor authentication for individual users and roles.
To do this, click "Create a new settings group" in Сustom settings, add users or roles and select your desired settings. The newly created group will be added to the top of the list and will get the highest priority.
The following settings are now available:
Ability to create organization vaults and private vaults
Ability to create links to passwords
Time of automatic logout when inactive
Authorization method (by local password, LDAP password or SSO)
A new mechanism for handling tasks allows you to run them in the background. For example, you can run an LDAP synchronization task and still work in Passwork. Your synchronization task will run in the background.
You can see scheduled and completed tasks on the “Tasks” page. Here you can also find the configuration instructions for your operating system.
Display a favicon in the password list
The Passwork interface has become even more user friendly and convenient. If a password has a URL, a website icon will be displayed next to its name.
Automatic favicon loading can be set up by administrators on the “Company settings” page. In this case background tasks should be set up.
Automatic session termination in the mobile app and Passwork extension when API key is changed
Removed white background in the dark theme when loading pages
Fixed bug displaying the results of an outdated search query
Improved validation of TOTP keys
Fixed empty messages in Syslog
Added login validation with UTF-8 encoding
Added automatic LDAP host swap :\\ → ://
Fixed errors in LDAP code related to the migration to PHP 8
The new version of Passwork now runs on PHP 8. Previous versions of PHP are no longer supported.
New access rights window
The window with access settings for vaults and folders has been completely redesigned. All users and roles having access to a vault or folder are now collected here as well as links and sent passwords.
The rights can now be edited on each tab by selecting multiple objects at once. All modified and deleted objects are marked by an indicator until you save changes. Search filters allow you to display all objects with a certain access right.
Ability to quickly view who accessed vaults and folders
When hovering over an icon next to the name of a vault or folder you can see some brief information about the number of users, roles, links and sent passwords.
Clicking on a list opens up the window for access rights management inside a given vault or folder.
Granting access to individual passwords without adding users to a vault
In previous versions of Passwork, it was possible to send a password copy to users. In the new version, users will see the original password in the Inbox, which will be updated when the original vault changes.
That means you can now give access directly to a password without adding users to a vault or folder.
You can send a password and enable users to edit it, then when a user changes this password, it will be updated for you as well.
Ability to add TOTP keys and then generate 2FA codes
When adding and editing a password, you can add a TOTP field and enter a secret code to generate 2FA codes. The generated code is updated every 30 seconds.
The "Password" field is now optional, so you can keep 2FA codes separate from main passwords.
Adding TOTP keys and generating 2FA codes is available in the web version, browser extension, and mobile app.
Failed login attempts are now displayed in the action history
The action history displays all failed user authorization attempts. This allows you to better track unauthorized access attempts and the actions of blocked users.
You can see all failed login attempts on the Activity Log page by enabling a filter in the Action column.
Ability to enable priority authorization using SSO
The new version of Passwork now allows you to enable SSO priority authorization for all users. You can enable it in the "SSO settings" section.
With this option enabled, only the "Sign in via SSO" button is displayed on the authorization page, the login and password fields appear only when switching to the standard authorization.
Optimized work with a large number of users
Passwork has been tested and optimized for 20,000+ users.
Improved LDAP integration
Test mode for LDAP roles and groups linking
Saving LDAP logs to a CSV file
Updating user attributes during synchronization with LDAP directory
