I saw above some people had the same issue and they tried a "curl https://api.bitwarden.com/alive". I don't really undertsand what it suppose to do. But I don't get any error from this command. As a result I get today's date.

Ok nevermind. I'm idiot sandwich.
I forgot to reboot after doing edit on the firewalld.
Problem solved. Sorry for inconvenience.

Sorry really stupid question. Bitwarden mobile client is based on Xamarin, and I understand Xamarin has (unofficial) support for GTK - does that mean the existing app could be compiled or transpiled to run on a debian based device or does that just mean Xamarin would allow you to write a (entirely new) front end with GTK?

There's probably a broader way to phrase this question, but I'm wondering if there is any support in Bitwarden to enable security keys like Ledger wallets to act as the vault decryption method

Hello guys, I wonder why the "bw generate --special" command only includes limited symbol characters but excluding "`~(){}[]|;:'"<>,.?/+-"?

Oh I forgot to refer to symbel "_ and -"

Hello guys, I have edited some Non-English UTF-8 characters from web client and try to retrieve the item from CLI
But only to fetch some messy characters on Non-English UTF-8 parts.

Check your terminal settings.
Can you copy-paste this echo command and does the output match the input or does it get garbled? @MasonTodd_gitlab
$ echo "あああああ"
あああああ

$ echo "あああああ"
あああああ

I did as instructed and the result is matched with input command.

However, when I add that exact Japanese string to my item notes field via web client, and then I fetch the latest item info from native Powershell on win10 1909 using $a = bw get item MY_ITEM_NAME; , only to get garbled string beneath.
……,"notes":"銇傘亗銇傘亗銇?,"favorite":false,……

I used to use Japanese localized Windows (7), and everything would work. Then when I would bring work onto my Windows 7 PC I bought in the US, everything would get garbled. After digging into it, I found out Windows is stupid. Flipped a table, and just installed Japanese Windows 7 on my home PC too... lol.

Good luck with registry hell... :-(

btw I use Linux now, so no issues.

@junderw Thank you for your help anyway😃

Finally, I turn on the Force using UTF-8 globally switch in the Region Option Tab of win10 system.

Many things go comfortable at once, only at a minor cost that a few trivial apps which haven't got updated for a long long while would display □ as placeholders for those erroneously displaying but still correctly pastable characters.

Hey guys, how to debug the ambiguous error like this?
bw : Error parsing the encoded request data.
MasonTodd
@MasonTodd_gitlab
By trial-and-error method?
MasonTodd
@MasonTodd_gitlab
Oh I managed to crack it again.

Hi all, I was just checkout out the Github issues for PostgreSQL support and I can see that this is a feature being actively worked on (to some degree). I've done sqlserver to postgres migrations quite a bit recently in my day job and I was wondering if / how I can assist. I don't want to duplicate effort and it looks like there was some consideration of migrating to EF
Can anyone give any guidance as to where I can start without going off in an undesired direction.

@kspearrin
We are looking to use EF instead so that we can support multiple database engines
We will have two data access repository implementations : one for sql server with dapper (what we have today) and one for EF
I’ve already stubbed out some EF implementations to get started but there is a lot to do still to mirror the sql server ones
AM
@am-oxipay
ok sweet, well is there a branch or something I should start looking it to contribute ?
Kyle Spearrin
@kspearrin
It’s in master
AM
@am-oxipay
ok, brilliant. I imagine it's quite time consuming but I'm happy to chip away at it
Kyle Spearrin
@kspearrin
Pretty much allt he work to be done can be found here: https://github.com/bitwarden/server/tree/master/src/Core/Repositories
There is a SqlServer folder and a EF folder
Are you proficient at EF?
AM
@am-oxipay
I would place myself in the advanced category, not claiming to be an expert but I am very familiar with Postgre and C#. I've just done a bunch of migrations from SQLServer to Postgre on projects that used EF
all of which appear to be working well in production
Kyle Spearrin
@kspearrin
ok awesome. better than me. the desire would be to support any DB engine that EF supports. Namely postgres and mysql/mariadb
which i dont think should be too much of any issue if we stick with C# querying with EF
AM
@am-oxipay
ok, well I am happy to validate both as I go along
I agree
it's generally quite portable
Kyle Spearrin
@kspearrin
EF implementations will be run in self-hosted environments with low usage (lite), while the sql server implementations will continue to be used for large scale performance-dependent scenarios like Bitwarden Cloud
AM
@am-oxipay
ok. as an aside we've noticed quite considerable performance increases with the postgres migrations. They are just EF with a different backend, so it's not quite the same and YMMV
but in terms of scale i replaced a very expensive sqlserver instance with what i thought was a very undersized postgres install only to get almost 2x the numbers in about 1/3 of our perf tests
obviously very load specifc
but I don't think we've had any migrations that haven't seen some performance increase on equivalent or lower specc'd hardware
AM
@am-oxipay
part of my enquiry for porting was that I wanted to spin up a demo instance for work to show them but there is a generic push to 'the cloud' and the bean counters aren't overly keen on more sqlserver instances

Hello all, Do anyone know how to disable the auto update check of the Windows Desktop Bitwarden Application ? I've seen nothing in settings and in the "data.json" file.
I saw appear a "bitwarden-updater" folder in %localappdata%, with pre-downloaded update...
