Bitwarden Bitwarden

Bitwarden is a free/freemium open-source password management service that stores sensitive information such as website credentials in an encrypted vault.

Creating a Bitwarden connection

To create the connection you need:

  • A Client ID and Client Secret from personal API Key
  • A master password

Obtaining the credentials

Complete the following steps to get your Personal API Key:

  1. In the Web Vault, select the profile icon > Account Settings from the dropdown menu.


  2. From the Account Setting menu, select the Security page > Keys tab.


  3. Select View API Key and enter your Master Password. Once correctly entered, you will be provided the following:

  • client_id: "user.clientId" (This value is unique to your account and does not change.)
  • client_secret: "clientSecret" (This value is unique and can be rotated.)
  • scope: "api" (This value will always be "api".)
  • grant_type: "client_credentials" (This value will always be "client_credentials".)

Copy and save your client_id and client_secret.
