This script checks if the Bitwarden RS server is up to date, updates it if necessary and sends a message to a Telegram bot.

Introduction

The trap to avoid when installing custom software is to update it. It seems obvious but it is never very easy because there is often a compilation part, interoperability management between bricks, backups and so on.

Requirements

Software

It is clearly necessary to have deployed a Bitwarden RS instance on your server. I wrote an article about this topic here: https://illuad.fr/2020/06/11/install-a-bitwarden-rs-server.html

Since a message is sent to a Telegram bot, it is necessary to have one configured. I wrote an article about this topic here: https://illuad.fr/2020/10/27/get-a-telegram-alert-on-a-ssh-login-with-pam.html

System

This script can run on any GNU/Linux machine.

This script uses git, cargo, curl and restorecon commands but if you have followed my article, some of them are required which means they will necessarily be installed.

Installation

Since this script must be executed with root rights, it is a good practice to place it in /usr/local/sbin/.

sudo curl -Lo /usr/local/sbin/bw-updater -sSf https://gitea.illuad.fr/adrien/bw-updater/raw/branch/master/bw-updater
sudo chmod 750 /usr/local/sbin/bw-updater

Create the logs' directory.

sudo mkdir -p /var/log/updater/bitwarden

Configuration

This script requires the configuration of 3 variables to work: key, chat_id and username.

Variables key and chat_id correspond to the API key and the chat id obtained during the bot creation process. The variable username must match the username with which you installed Bitwarden RS server.

Fast variables setting

For the key variable.

sudo sed -i "s/key=/key=<your_key>/" /usr/local/sbin/tls-checker

For the chat_id variable.

sudo sed -i "s/chat_id=/chat_id=<your_chat_id>/" /usr/local/sbin/tls-checker

For the username variable.

sudo sed -i "s/username=/username=<your_username>/" /usr/local/sbin/tls-checker

Automation

Running this script automatically is a good idea, here is what you should have in the cron jobs of the root user.

sudo crontab -l
0 1 * * * /usr/local/sbin/bw-updater

Every day at 1:00 am, the script will check if the Bitwarden RS server is up to date.
