Can `op edit` add or change values in an array?

I'd like to script the addition of websites to the URLs list of some login items. (I'm coming from LastPass, where I had a lot of equivalent domains defined.) So I have an item like this (abridged):

$ op get item kd7bhqzz7vojq3emrkejmqrr7m | jq
  "uuid": "kd7bhqzz7vojq3emrkejmqrr7m",
  "overview": {
    "URLs": [
        "l": "website",
        "u": ""
        "l": "website 2",
        "u": ""
    "url": ""

And I've tried things like:

$ op edit item kd7bhqzz7vojq3emrkejmqrr7m URLs.1.u='blahblah'
$ op edit item kd7bhqzz7vojq3emrkejmqrr7m overview.URLs[1].u='blahblah'
$ op edit item kd7bhqzz7vojq3emrkejmqrr7m overview.URLs[2]='{"l": website 3", "u": "blahblah"}'
$ op edit item kd7bhqzz7vojq3emrkejmqrr7m overview.URLs.2='{"l": website 3", "u": "blahblah"}'

but they always just give [ERROR] ... The item doesn't have a "URLs.1.u" field. (or similar).
I don't see any documentation of assignment statement syntax that would accomplish this. Am I missing something, or is this not supported (yet)?

    Hey @P1h3r1e3d13 ,

    Looks like what you are trying to do is not supported yet. The only thing that is possible is editing the first URL of an item using op edit item [UUID]

    Editing existing items is a bit limited at the moment and we hope to improve and enhance it in the future :)

  • Thanks for confirming, @ag_yaron, and I'll look forward to the enhancements.
    Is there (or could there please be) documentation of which fields are supported? It's really unclear here and in the --help output.

    The reference guide you linked to is the best source of information on the CLI at the moment.

    I'll forward your request for better documentation. Thank you for bringing that up! :+1:
