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.

When sharing a group you share: tags, environment variables, startup snippets, proxy and identity used in proxy settings and host chains.

But this data is not shared:

  • Usernames, passwords, keys, identities.

  • Any port forwarding rules.

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 them, you’ll get an e-mail containing a link you need to follow to start sharing 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, which include 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.

Host Chain Sharing

If the group, which you are sharing, or a host you'll add to it later, contains host chains with hosts that are not in the group, you’ll be asked to move these hosts to that group.

💡 By moving the groups manually you can achieve a mindful organisation inside a shared group. For example, you can create a ‘Bastions’ sub-group inside the shared group and place your hosts in there.

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.

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.
