Most options below are configured by directly editing the
Note that KeePass features a rich plugin framework. If there's no item in the INI file to configure what you're thinking about, you might want to write a plugin.
KeePass supports a mini mode. By specifying
In this mode, the following functionality is hidden:
If the specified database does not exist, KeePass automatically creates and
opens one. To specify the base path of a newly created database, use
Security-critical operations (like changing the master key, printing,
exporting, unhiding passwords, etc.) can be disabled by specifying
Some operations can be re-enabled by explicitly specifying additional
configuration items. Note that because of security reasons these additional
items are only loaded from the enforced and global INI files, not from
the user's local INI file. They override the unsafe operations and mini
mode settings. The following boolean items are supported:
To disallow printing passwords, specify
Groups in Newly Created Databases
Example. If you'd like the initial tree to look like the one on the right, your INI file would contain the following lines:
KeeRootInNewDb=@My Company Name@35 KeeGroupInNewDb0=@Windows@38 KeeGroupInNewDb1=@Network@3 KeeGroupInNewDb2=@Internet@1 KeeGroupInNewDb3=@eMail@19 KeeGroupInNewDb4=@Applications@32
Items must be numbered consecutively in ascending order starting from 0. The first character of the item's value specifies a separator character. In the example above, '@' is used as separator, but you could pick any other character (in case the group name contains an '@'). The group name follows the separator character and is terminated by the separator character. The number that follows is the ID of a built-in KeePass client icon (see the icon picker dialog of KeePass for a list of icons). Creating tree structures (i.e. subgroups of the groups above) is not supported.
Window Title Suffix
A main window title suffix can be specified using the
Dialog Banner Appearance
The appearance of dialog banners of KeePass can be configured using the following items in the INI file:
Minimum Master Password Requirements
You can specify several properties that master passwords must have in order to be accepted (length, estimated quality, ...). See Specifying Minimum Master Password Properties.
The number of days below which entries are treated as soon to expire can be specified using the KeeSoonToExpireDays configuration item.
The locations of the configuration files can be overridden using the KeeConfigFileOverrideGlobal and KeeConfigFileOverrideUser settings (in the enforced configuration file). Complete, absolute file paths should be specified, and the two overrides should not point to the same file.
Regular expression replacements can be applied to the notes before showing them in the main entry list. The KeeNotesRegex# items in the configuration file specify the regular expressions and KeeNotesFormat# the replacements. For example, the following settings replace tab characters by middle dots:
