From the above picture, you can see one option saying New Share. Select it, and then enter webuser/web group name, to whom you want to share.(Note: case sensitive).

 For this you need to know web user id / web user group name.

At Bottom, you can see view password option. Use this to see any of the passwords that are shared to you.

Work with Web Users profiles:   Here we can define the usernames and passwords, who can login to WebkeePass interface.
Edit Web Users:

Give user ID and Password. Address information is optional. In Access Information box, we need to check user active and add that user to any of the web groups we have created or already created. By default, there are two web groups:
1)    Admins
2)    Users
    Enter the User Group appropriate and then click on Add/Update. Now he can login via web with the url given along with credentials provided.

Web User Profile:
Here we can see how many web users are existed and to which they belong to.

Web User Groups:   To create new web user group: click on Edit web User Groups.

Enter UserGroup and then check Group Active box ….etc. Use Menu XML button to select type of xml sheet to be used , give date format, select server access.
Now, click on Add/Update to add the web group.
Why do we need this Web Groups?
If you have observed how we are sharing our Password IDs. They can be shared to web user/web group. Most of the time, it is very difficult to share the password ID to each individual users. It consumes lot of time. So what we can do? Since, we have created few groups. At the time of creating users add them to appropriate groups. While sharing simply share to the group. Now all the group members can have access to the share.
Web User Group Profile:
Click on WebUserGroupProfile. You’ll be shown nothing there.

Click on ‘Find-it’ which you can see on top. Now you will be displayed all the groups that are existed like below:

That’s it.
