better url matching

Postby incognito » Sun Sep 06, 2009 3:21 pm

Im using my imported roboform logins and more often than not, the url im at doesnt match the url in the lastpass site vault. Im guessing roboform had a more lenient url matching system so could you guys possibly loosen the url matching requirements?

Can you give an example of the URLs and what happened in roboform versus LastPass (URL you're at, and URL saved)

URL in the site vault: http://Domain.com
url in browser: http://domain.com

a simple capital letter will throw off url matching.

I'll keep posting things that come up.


when i try to login, it can't find any saved sites.

I can't reproduce this problem, capitalization shouldn't make a difference -- is this IE or Firefox? Can you directly paste the URLs in question if not sensitive?

Well another type of "better URL matching":
It would be nice if LP could distinguish between abc.domain.com and def.domain.com.
We have many intranet sites with different passwords.

Please implement this, it's a pain in the backside with sites where mutiple things exist on different subdomains within the same domain.

e.g wiki.domain.com
forum.domain.com

LP always seems to get confused as to which login to try and use.

There should be an option to match a portion of the url e.g http://domain.com/ may be a different password to http://domain.com/admin/

There's another thread on the Feedback forum that seems to be the same as this one. Someone called genkiz quoted an interesting idea there at viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9269&start=10#p53269. Apparently there is already a place in LastPass setup to define equivalent domains (e.g. to say that http://www.mynewtestsite.com = http://www.myexistingsite.com) so genkiz suggested:

genkiz Wrote:oh yes we just need an option to define non equivalent urls

mydom.com != phpmyadmin.mydom.com
mydom.com/phpmyadmin != mydom.com

workstation3-yncxfusnpo.app02-11.logmein.com != notebook2-ygzxfssod.app02-11.logmein.com
workstation3*.logmein.com != notebook2*.logmein.com


That seems nice to me because I can see why Joe is so protective of the current default behaviour because I agree with him that for me it seems to do the right thing way more often than other password managers and I don't end up needing to define the same password about 5 times depending where on a site it is requested (I had to do this with the built in FireFox password manager) so I like the idea of specific overrides and if the equivalence mechanism could be enhanced by simply adding the ability to define negatives then that seems to offer a really intuitive and low effort route for introducing this functionality.
