Bitwarden does not work through the use of a port; requires a subdomain.
3. PG YouTube
When utilizing Bitwarden, ensure that Traefik is established and that the Bitwarden subdomain is working. Bitwarden requires that a user creates an account, which is a simple process. The reason that Bitwarden does not work through the use of a port is (1) bad security and (2) creates a special key that cannot be utilized through unencrypted means.

Misc. settings (SMTP / disable signup etc.)
Log in to Portainer and find the container (default name is bitwarden), click on the Bitwarden container and edit/duplicate the container so you can start editing it. Find **Env **in the tabs. Then make sure to add / edit the following settings:
- DOMAIN (default: https://bitwarden.DOMAIN.com)
- SMTP_HOST (default: in-v3.mailjet.com)
- SMTP_FROM (default: no-reply@DOMAIN.com)
- SMTP_PORT (default: 587)
- SMTP_SSL (default: true)
- SMTP_USERNAME (default: GET FROM MAILJET)
- SMTP_PASSWORD (default: GET FROM MAILJET)
- SMTP_FROM_NAME (default: Bitwarden)
- SIGNUPS_ALLOWED = false (this disables further signups - does not affect invited users later in organizations)
Obviously you should change the settings above f.ex. **DOMAIN **to your own domain and check the SMTP server settings. Finally redeploy the image to finalize the settings.
Connecting browser extension, iOS/Android app
A word of note - if you have problems connecting the extensions this may be due to the PGBlitz' PG-Shield if this is deployed. What happens is the extensions are looking for a valid API response from the server and not Google's Authentication form. Therefore you have to disable the oauth label in the container. Here's how you do it:
Log in to Portainer and find the container (default name is bitwarden), click on the Bitwarden container and edit/duplicate the container so you can start editing it. Find Labels in the tabs. Find the one marked in yellow in the picture below and DELETE it. Redeploy the container and all should work.
Then proceed like this: Click the browser extension button top right in Chrome and choose Settings on the main screen (1), fill out your own server address (2) then click save, you may now login using your details (3).
