Wildcard Sites?

I'm trying to use a wildcard for an entry to pop up on any site, tried just an asterisk and *.com but I'm wondering if there is even a way to do this? Basially I'm creating a login entry for multiple values that will apply across a wide range of sites, kind of like a go-to. How best to set up?

    Hi @linkthepirate

    We do not support wildcards in URLs in 1Password. It is possible to list multiple website fields on an item if appropriate, though I'd urge caution in using that to work around 1Password's phishing protection or for the purpose of reusing the same credentials across multiple sites/services. Would you mind elaborating a bit about what you're trying to accomplish here? We may be able to help point you in a better direction.

    Please let me know.


  • For work, I have a number of sites where I have URL patterns of the (approximate) form:

    • login.siteA.thing.com
    • login.siteB.thing.com

    I don't want to list thing.com in the "website" field, as this actually has a separate login.

    Hey @nickcmaynard ,

    If multiple websites require the same credentials, then add all of the URLs to the same login item.
    In case one of them has the same base domain but requires different credentials, create a separate login item for it.

    When you try to autofill, 1Password will show all relevant options based on the following ordering:

    • Favorites with the same base domain will show up first in the list.
    • Exact matches of the URL will show up 2nd.
    • Similar matches that have the same base domain but different subdomains will show up 3rd.

    If you have a specific login that you're using a lot more often than others for a specific domain, mark it as a favorite and it will make autofilling easier, as it will show up first when you try to autofill.

    Sadly the multiple website thing doesn't help - these site URLs are autogenerated, dynamic, and there are potentially thousands of them.

    I'd ideally have two 1password logins:

    • A, for login.*.thing.com
    • B, for thing.com

    I'd happily take a separate websiteRegex or websiteWildcard option - this sort of thing is pretty unusual, and I imagine those who run into it would be happy to dig into some technical documentation if needed.

    Thanks for the additional details @nickcmaynard ,
    I can definitely see how you can utilize such a feature in your specific (edge) case, but we don't have such a feature at the moment.

    My best suggestion would be to create 2 separate logins, both with thing.com in the website field, but with different credentials.
    Name them properly so you'll know to differentiate between them quickly and easily, and mark one of them as a favorite so they'll always show up in the same order, making it a lot easier for you to autofill.

    We'll forward your feedback here, perhaps we'll see this feature in a future version at some point. :+1:

  • This would be really great for enterprise organizations. I work at a university hospital system and we manage 700+ websites, along with countless other services, all with the *.univ.edu domain. I really don't think this is edge case at all for people that use 1password for work.

    +1 for this feature. In my company we deploy preview versions of our sites which vary for each new feature we are releasing. The url's only vary by one specific number (the pull request number) and it would be great to support wildcards in this scenario.

    In our case it looks something like: https://deploy-preview-*--my-custom-domain.netlify.app
