Data Sharing

Team administrators can share one or more groups of hosts and all of its nested groups between other team members. The shared group will be accessible to team members in the read-only mode.

Termius utilizes advanced end-to-end encryption to ensure the security of group sharing.

Before Sharing

Add your workmates to the team on the Manage Team page. Every one of them will receive an e-mail invitation. Once they accept the invitations, you’ll receive an e-mail containing a link you need to follow to confirm you’re ready to share data.

Before you can start sharing data, it’s necessary that all your teammates have logged in to the app at least once.

Please, use one of the supported browsers when visiting the Manage Team page and https://account.termius.com: Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari (desktop versions).

Share a Group

To share a group in the desktop app, right-click one and choose Share.

Sharing a group in the desktop app

In the mobile apps, tap and hold the desired group, then tap (iOS) or (Android) and choose Share.

Unsharing can be done similarly, but with the Unshare option.

Connect to Shared Hosts

Since passwords, usernames or keys used in/attached to hosts in a shared group are not shared, it's best for non-administators to connect to the hosts with the help of identities.

What Data is Shared

When sharing a group you share almost all of its attributes and nested hosts.

The following attributes are shared too:

  • Tags.

  • Environment variables.

  • Startup snippets.

  • Proxy and identity used in proxy settings.

  • A host chain, but only if all of the hosts in the chain are shared.

But this data is not shared:

  • Usernames, passwords, keys and identities used to connect to a host.

  • Any port forwarding rules.

Notes

More options are planned for future versions:

  • Ability to allow editing a shared group by a non-administrator.

  • Ability to request credentials by team members for a host from the team administrator.
