Self-hosting Send

    Once you update your instance, most implementations will be already setup to begin using Send. An exception to this is if you’re using a non-default mapped volume for attachment storage.

    The files attached to File Sends are stored in a send subdirectory of the existing attachments volume (i.e. ./bwdata/core/attachments/send). This is dictated by the globalSettings__send__baseDirectory= environment variable, which has the following default configuration in global.override.env:

    globalSettings__send__baseDirectory=/etc/bitwarden/core/attachments/send
    

    If you want to store the files attached to File Sends in your non-default attachments volume, you’ll need to point globalSettings__send__baseDirectory= to the new volume. For more information, see Configure Environment Variables.
