Converting TANs from KeePass ≤ 1.10 to ≥ 1.11.
When upgrading from KeePass ≤ 1.10 to 1.11 or higher, TAN indices
are not shown anymore.
In order to allow users writing notes about used TANs (for example for
which transaction it was used), the field in which the TAN index is
stored has been changed from the notes field to the user name field.
Consequently KeePass ≥ 1.11 will not find indices of old TANs.
Will this be fixed in a later KeePass version?
A "fix" would need to automatically move indices from the notes
field to the user name field. This however could break new TANs, as you couldn't
write numbers into the notes field anymore. As users might very likely
enter a number only in the notes field of a TAN, the
"fix" would overwrite TAN indices with this number, which
obviously is a very bad thing. Therefore, no "fix" for
this will be included.
Reimport your TANs into the new KeePass version using its TAN wizard.
The TAN wizard of the
new KeePass version generates the indices in the correct entry field.
Alternative Resolution (for KeePass ≥ 1.12):
There is a plugin called 'TanUpgrade', which moves all indices of
old TANs into the new location, such that the new KeePass version correctly
finds the indices.
- Download the plugin:
Upgrade for KeePass 1.12,
Upgrade for KeePass 1.13,
Upgrade for KeePass 1.14,
Upgrade for KeePass ≥ 1.15.
- Extract the ZIP file and move the
TanUpgrade.dll file into the
KeePass application directory. [Only KeePass ≤ 1.14:
Start KeePass, go 'Tools' -> 'Plugins'
and enable the 'TanUpgrade.dll' plugin (to do this, right-click on the
plugin and select 'Enable').]
- Restart KeePass.
- Open your database.
- Click in main menu: 'Tools' -> 'Upgrade All TANs'.
- Save the database.
[Update 2008-08-17: A new version of TanUpgrade is available for
KeePass 1.12, which fixes a problem with in-memory protected TANs.]
[Update 2008-09-07: TanUpgrade is now also available for KeePass 1.13.]
[Update 2008-10-18: TanUpgrade is now also available for KeePass 1.14.]
[Update 2009-02-13: TanUpgrade is now also available for KeePass ≥ 1.15.]
