We have a central repository of passwords. Users regularly send the entries that are not yet listed and these are added in a tree. Also, tags are given to establish what the entry is for.

For example:
What company (ACME, IBM, General Electric).
What function role in the company (finance, purchasing, systemadministration, marketing).

Currently we can use 'Show Entries by Tag' which results in a flat list. This flat list can be exported.

It would be even better when:
1. You could say: 'Show Entries by Tag(s)' and then specifiy Company (such as 'IBM') and function role ('finance'). This would export all entries for finance people at IBM needed for their work.
2. The tags also to be specified when doing Export as a filter. Then you would not get a flat list, but a nice structured view with some entries left out and empty groups collapsed.

    Same problem here. I am a development manager and I had like to distribute a set of keys to my coworkers on a per group basis (each person has a different set of projects for specific customers). The above solution would also fit our company needs.

    I would like to express my desire for this functionality as well.

    Ideally, a trigger can be created with which entries matching a tag (or tags) will be exported to a specified database.

    In addition, it would also prompt to set this database's password [currently, exported databases have the same password as the master database, and have to be manually loaded, changed, and saved].

    Kindly devote some thought to this, as it would automate a lot of the management process :-)
