Empty storage password is ignored



My storage password is empty, but it is not recognized/used by duplicacy:

        "name": "default",
        "id": "ubuntu-backup",
        "repository": "",
        "storage": "b2://test",
        "encrypted": true,
        "no_backup": false,
        "no_restore": false,
        "no_save_password": false,
        "nobackup_file": "",
        "keys": {
            "password" : "",
            "b2_id": "09809809809",
            "b2_key": "spspdsaopdasopdk"

It still asks for password:

$ /usr/local/bin/duplicacy -v backup -stats
Storage set to b2://test
Enter storage password:

When I try to set an empty password value:

@ubuntu:~$ duplicacy set -key password -value ""
The options for storage b2://test have not been modified

My question is:

  • It is possible to use/save empty password so it is not asking for any password when I run backup command?
  • It is possible to change storage password?


Yes. See here:
