KeePass standard expiration date

Posted on 2013-12-04
Last Modified: 2013-12-26
KeePass is an open source tool for password management.  There is a set of standard expiration dates, such as 1 month, or 3 months.  

My need is to add a custom value.  However, I don't find anything in the client xml that mentions this LOV.

Easy points to the person who can demonstrate how I can modify this.

Seems like you edit that dates (different from your img) again after you first time create it
(see Figure 12: The KeePass Add Entry screen and Figure 19: The KeePass Add Entry screen).

Specifically, I looking into their info online and saw there is a field call "KeeSoonToExpireDays" (

It may be the default but all the available configuration falls under the files stated in the

May need to explore

Close, but....  It may be a value in the .ini which is hidden on my site.  I intend to d/l and install this at home to confirm if it's that easy.  The complete dearth of facts has me wondering if I'm going to have to go into the source code.

Will update soon.

Hi breadtan, I have gone over and over your sources, unsuccessfully.  The figure you referenced and the context mention that an expiration reminder may be set, but fails to show anything about altering the LOV requested in my question.  If you have anything further, please try to reply before the end-of-month.

Thank you for the additional effort.  Not what I wanted to learn, but it's closure.  As things turned out, I have been able to fully convert to PKI authentication.  That qualifies me for an exemption from password expiration.
