A Keeper Record Type is a structured template that can contain any type of information such as logins, payment cards, bank accounts, and many more. There are several out-of-the-box record types available, and Admins can create custom types that fit the needs of your organization. Custom types can be created for all users, or users within specific roles.
Below are the list of available record types.
The set of data needed to successfully login to a website.
Credit card information, used in autofilling of forms. Payment cards can also be "linked" to other records, to reduce duplication of data.
Identity information about a particular person. We recommend you create one with your information, used in autofilling of forms.
Address information used to identify a physical location. Address records can also be "linked" to other records, to reduce duplication of data.

Record Types can be shared to other users, either direct sharing or within a Shared Folder, just like any other record. This now includes Payment Cards and Contact record types.
To create Payment Cards that can be shared to other users, click on Create New > Payment Card.
Each user can set sorting of the record types which appear when creating new records. Visit Settings > Record Type Sorting > Edit Order.
Keeper Business and Enterprise customers can define totally custom Record Types for their specific needs.
In order to create new custom Record Types, the user must be in an Administrative role with the "Manage Record Types in Vault" permission activated as seen below in the Admin Console role permission interface.
To activate this permission, visit Roles > Select Role > Hover over gear icon > Administrative Permissions.
Once the permission is activated, the Admin can login to the Web Vault or Desktop App to create a record type.
From the Keeper Vault application, select Create New > Record and then select "Create new record template":
You can create the new template based on an existing template, or you can start with a blank record and add the required fields:
Within the new Record Type screen, you are able to define what fields will exist within this template. You are able to add, remove and re-order any field types you wish to. Add new fields by clicking the Insert Field button.
As an example, here's a custom record type for an Amazon AWS Access Key:
Mandatory field, the title of the record, does not have to be unique
The standard login field, this is used to autofill records.
The standard password field, this is used to autofill records. Only one password field can be present for a particular record. If an account has multiple, use hidden fields or pin codes.
The website address of a record, if included will be used for site matching and autofill.
Email address field, validates the string entered matches an email format.
Keeper can protect and generate 2FA codes for any website or service that supports the use of TOTP (Time-Based One-Time-Passwords).
File or Photo
File attachments can be any type of file, photo, video or other document. An unlimited number of files can be attached to any Keeper vault record. File storage is an add-on subscription. If file storage is disabled, please contact your Keeper administrator or email [email protected].
Mandatory field. Any free-form notes can be protected in this field such as access instructions or confidential documentation.

After all needed fields have been added to the page, they can then be sorted via drag-and-drop. Click the Publish button to make it available to all users who have the record type enabled in their role policy enforcements.
To add and remove record types for your users, login to the Keeper Admin Console > Roles > Enforcement Policies and visit the Record Types screen. From here, you can turn on or off different record types on a role basis.
By default, a role can use all Record Types
If a user is part of multiple roles, disabling a record type in any role will prevent creation of those record types for the user.
If all record types are disabled, the user will be unable to create records.
If you would like to make a global change for all users, disable the Record Type in the default role.
The "General" record type is Keeper's legacy record version.
A newly created record can be converted between types, however "legacy" records created prior to the launch of Record Types cannot be converted to a Record Type.
Converting existing records to Login record type is planned for a later release.
