Please add --description to op edit vault

Can you please add --description as a flag for the op edit vault command? (

It is available for groups, but not for vaults. Seems like a simple oversight.

(We have several hundred vaults where I'd like to remove the description programmatically and there's no way to do it via the CLI tool.)

    Hello @jscarle,

    Thanks for letting us know that you'd like to be able to edit a vault’s description. Feedback like this is super valuable. I've made the team aware of the request.

    Please let us know if there is anything further that we can assist you with.

    👋 Michael

  • I see according to the release notes ( ) that the team is back to working on the CLI tool. I would like to reiterate how useful this request would be! Thank you for considering it.

    Thanks for checking in on this @jscarle !
    Will bring it up again with the team :+1:

  • I'll chime in in support of this as well. In February at your urging we started programmatically creating vaults for all of our staff to securely pass them credentials and encryption keys. We have created hundreds since then, but as I described in

    1Pass creates random playful icons for these vaults & we can't control this behavior. We have been hand editing all of these vaults since then after they are created by the system primarily to avoid 1Pass from gaining a non-serious reputation in our organization. This sounds silly, but when arbitrary staff ask for important information from a system of record and it's wrapped in a container with a picture of a palm tree or grandma, it can have damaging consequences that are hard to fix. It's really getting old

    It would be fantastically helpful if we could edit the icon attached to a vault programmatically like the description in this request. It does not need to be elegant - just possible.

    Hey Paul,
    Thank you kindly for bringing this up again. I'll forward this valuable feedback to the team so we can re-prioritize if possible.

    I should mention that we introduced the --description flag to edit vault in v1.11.3 back on 2021-08-25. Thanks for the feature request!

  • Awesome.
