1Password command-line tool 1.0: More commands, more power
by Connor Hicks on
Today we’re thrilled to announce the release of 1Password command-line tool 1.0. We’re excited to highlight some of the features the team has worked hard to build.
This tool makes your 1Password account accessible entirely from the command line. It gives you robust ways to interact with and manage your 1Password account.
The command-line tool makes it easy to create a new item in 1Password with
op create item:
op create item server title=Staging firstname.lastname@example.org url=sftp://staging.example.com
op edit item command allows you to update an item directly from the command line. Now you can update dozens or even hundreds of items at once with some simple scripting.
op edit item “Personal Visa” pin=8910
You can also get specific field values from items using the
get item command and the new
--fields option. This is super convenient when you want to use information that’s stored securely in 1Password in your command-line workflows.
op get item GitLab --fields password,token
This 1.0 release also gives you the ability to generate a strong password with the
--generate-password option. It works with
create item and
edit item commands. You can even customize the password recipe to adjust the length and character types to use.
op create item login --vault Streaming title=Petflix --generate-password
It’s just as efficient to perform administrative tasks in the terminal as it is to manage items. With a single command, you can add, confirm, or remove users from your account, as well as assign users access to specific groups and vaults. Running
op create user adds a new user to your account and the
add user command can grant them additional access. You can also specify a user’s role within a group using the
op add user email@example.com Directors op add group Directors Financials
op list users options,
--vault, allow you to see who has access to what and make changes that align with your organization’s access policies.
op list users --group Directors
That’s just a sample of all of the administrative commands you have at your disposal. Take a look at our documentation for a full list.
We’ve also added a bunch of new features to keep things running smoothly:
get item --share-linkto generate a link that points right to items.
op confirm --allto confirm all pending accepted invitations.
And there are even more features that we haven’t mentioned here for you to discover in the newest release!
The latest release of the 1Password command-line tool is available to download now.
