LastPass

Two steps are required to use LastPass with SmartFTP:

1. Select the LastPass credential provider in the Favorite:

  1. Go to the favorite properties:
    Option A:
    Connect to an existing favorite.
    Go to the menu: Favorites - Favorite Properties
    Option B:
    Open a new connection: menu: File - Connection
    Click on the Properties button in the Quick Connect dialog
  2. Select LastPass in the the Login - Provider selection box
  3. Enter the username of the site you want to connect to and not your LastPass username
  4. Click OK to save the changes

2. Add the site in LastPass

Login into the LastPass Vault and add a new site. 

Given a favorite, SmartFTP searches the LastPass password vault for a matching site. It uses several strategies:

Strategy: Url

It uses the Url property in the LastPass site entry to identify a corresponding site. The Url property must be set according to the following table:

SmartFTP   LastPass
Protocol Host Username Url in LastPass
FTP myhost.com user ftp://myhost.com/
FTPS myhost.com user ftps://myhost.com/
FTPS ftp.myhost.com user ftps:/ftp.myhost.com/
SFTP myhost.com user sftp://myhost.com/
WebDAV myhost.com user http://myhost.com/
WebDAVS myhost.com user https://myhost.com/
SSH myhost.com user ssh://myhost.com/

Amazon S3, Google Drive, OneDrive protocols are not supported.

Strategy: Favorite Id

It looks for a text form field in a LastPass site with the name SmartSoft.SmartFTP.FavoriteItem.Id and the favorite id (e.g. {D9F65CFA-D79D-4410-95D1-F7A395707330}) as the value.

Notes

Shared Folders

For folders which are shared with you, the Show Password access privilege must be given otherwise the site will not be available to you.
