NAME

       keepassxc-cli - command line interface for the KeePassXC password manager.

SYNOPSIS

       keepassxc-cli command [options]

DESCRIPTION

       keepassxc-cli  is  the  command  line  interface  for  the  KeePassXC password manager. It
       provides the ability to query and modify the entries of a KeePass database, directly  from
       the command line.

COMMANDS

       add [options] <database> <entry>
              Adds  a  new  entry  to  a  database. A password can be generated (-g option), or a
              prompt can be displayed to input the password (-p option).

       clip [options] <database> <entry> [timeout]
              Copies the password of a database entry to the clipboard. If multiple entries  with
              the  same  name  exist  in different groups, only the password for the first one is
              going to be copied. For copying the password of an entry in a specific  group,  the
              group  path  to  the  entry  should be specified as well, instead of just the name.
              Optionally, a timeout in seconds  can  be  specified  to  automatically  clear  the
              clipboard.

       diceware [options]
              Generate a random diceware passphrase.

       edit [options] <database> <entry>
              Edits a database entry. A password can be generated (-g option), or a prompt can be
              displayed to input the password (-p option).

       estimate [options] [password]
              Estimates the entropy of a password. The password to estimate can be provided as  a
              positional argument, or using the standard input.

       extract [options] <database>
              Extracts and prints the contents of a database to standard output in XML format.

       generate [options]
              Generate a random password.

       locate [options] <database> <term>
              Locates all the entries that match a specific search term in a database.

       ls [options] <database> [group]
              Lists  the  contents  of  a  group in a database. If no group is specified, it will
              default to the root group.

       merge [options] <database1> <database2>
              Merges two databases together. The first database file is going to be  replaced  by
              the  result  of  the merge, for that reason it is advisable to keep a backup of the
              two database files before attempting a merge. In the case that both databases  make
              use of the same credentials, the --same-credentials or -s option can be used.

       rm [options] <database> <entry>
              Removes an entry from a database. If the database has a recycle bin, the entry will
              be moved there. If the entry is already in the recycle  bin,  it  will  be  removed
              permanently.

       show [options] <database> <entry>
              Shows  the  title, username, password, URL and notes of a database entry. Regarding
              the occurrence of  multiple  entries  with  the  same  name  in  different  groups,
              everything stated in the clip command section also applies here.
