Export doesn't export all Vault Contents

Community Member

We currently have an account with 7 vaults; when doing an export with 1P 8, not all the vault contents are being exported. The account contains 134 items, but only 88 are being exported. This is using the CSV export option

    @mikeormerod ,

    The 1P8 CSV exports only basic details if an item contains any usernames, passwords, OTP secrets.

    The CSV export is not a complete export. Use 1PUX if you want a full export.

    I can't use the 1PUX export as it's incompatible with the target we're looking to import into. The main issue appears to be that the export completely ignores one of the vaults within the account, which does contain items that have the basic info of usernames, passwords, etc.

    @MrC ok...so are there any plans to do a full export? You said, use the 1PUX for a full export. But that file appears to be encrypted. So I can't see any of my passwords there.

    The 1PUX is the full export. It is a simple ZIP archive that contains the exported data in JSON (readable text) format, a files folder where exported documents and attachments are stored, and a very small text file describing the version of the 1PUX.

    Change the suffix to .zip and you can exact the contents. It is unencrypted, so be careful.

    Hello all,
    Xmas period is beneficial for some extensive tests :-)
    Among those ones, following some personal testing - that require confirmation - yes 1pux is the full export of all Vaults... for which you have "write" access rights. I would have expected that export's content will include all "readable" Vaults.

    https://support.1password.com/export/ should reflect this explicitly and an upgrade to export all readable Vaults would be welcome
