    Is there a chance or some pluggin which makes KeePass able to support multi-user permissioning?

    It would be nice to make some edition leveling option to be sure that someone will not remove oure passwords and data.

    Like:
    1. Admins/root - Able to do/edit everything.
    2. High users - Able to add, edit, remove passwords. Unable to remove history or edit password database settings.
    3. Default users add, edit passwords. Unable to remove passwords, edit history and database.
    4. Read only - Able to read passwords but cant edit or add anything.

    Like.. now some user might drop/edit/remove oure passwords or change DB main pass which is a great problem :/

    There is always a chance but it doesn't seem likely. KeePass is more of a personal password manager and as such is optimal for managing an individual's passwords. While a database can be shared between individuals who know the Master Key, the user identification and database protection/access roles are inseparable because a KeePass database is encrypted/decrypted as a whole.

    A KeePass Workspace can manage multiple open databases. This ability can be used to approximate a basic hierarchical permission scheme; e.g. an "Administrator" can edit all databases that they have the Master Key to, while users can view and edit only their personal database. Management of multiple databases is made convenient by the addition of the KeeAutoExec plugin combined with some well chosen triggers.

    Pleasant Solutions claims to produce a multi-user server for KeePass though I am not aware of any feedback posted on this forum concerning the product.
