username variantions

I often have an issue with single sign on systems. They are often integrated in an ad hoc way. That means that depending on the context you have to use a username or an email or ... to login. The password stays the same. 1password does not deal with this very well in any of the extension versions I've tried. You can only have 1 username. If you make multiple entries it works but you get watchtower alerts and it is a nightmare when password reset day comes by. (Incidentally please tell the ISO 27001 guys about that).

Any solutions?

    Hi @rf31415! Welcome to the forum!

    At the moment you are correct that the only solution would be to have multiple login items with the different usernames, even though this causes some additional Watchtower alerts and more item updates. We are however discussing how to improve SSO support, so I have passed your feedback to the developers :+1:

  • I work for 3 companies at the moment, I have it with all of them. I reckon it is pretty common.
