Create an account for a website with the Workspace browser extension

The Workspace browser extension assists you in creating a new account when you register on a website. It gives you the ability to create a secure password and save your new credentials.

If you already have an account for the website, learn how to Add a Website Entry with the Workspace browser extension instead.

Follow the steps below to learn how to create a website account with the Workspace browser extension and save your credentials in Devolutions Server.

  1. On the website for which you want to create your account, go to the registration/account creation page. This page will be different for each website; this topic will use the Atlassian website as an example

  2. Follow the website’s registration process until you get to the password field.
  3. Click on the Workspace browser extension icon in your browser toolbar, then select the Password Generator tab in the Side menu of the extension.

  4. You can now customize the password generation settings, but this is optional since the default settings already generate very strong passwords. That being said, it may be necessary to adjust the settings to meet the specific requirements of some websites. If you do not wish to customize the generation settings, you can skip to step 5.
    1. Set a Password length. The default value is set to 12.

    2. In the General settings, select the types of characters that your password must contain. The default is set to include uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and numbers, but it is also possible to include special characters in your password.

    3. In the same section next to the character types, select the minimum number of characters of each type that must be included in your password. The default values are set to 0.
    4. In the Advanced settings, you can even further customize your password if desired. In the first field, enter characters you want included in your password, followed in the field to the right by the minimum number of times they must appear. In the second field, enter characters you want excluded from your password.

  5. Provide a Name for the entry. You can keep the default name or change it, but we recommend that it reflects the content of the entry so that it is easier to find when needed.
  6. Select the vault you want to save your credentials into.
  7. Provide a Destination folder in which to save your website entry. If you leave this field empty, the entry will be saved at the root of the vault. If the folder you specify does not exist, it will be created at the same time as your entry.
  8. Click Save.

Your credentials are now securely stored in a new website entry in Devolutions Server. The next time you log in to the same account, the Workspace browser extension will detect it and you will be able to retrieve your credentials. Follow our step-by-step instructions for retrieving your credentials.
