How to access credential field via terraform?

I've finally gotten terraform provider working with 1Password's op-connect-api and op-connect-sync images, however when using a data source of onepassword_item, none of the fields returned by /v1/vaults/{vault-uuid}/items/{item-uuid} are actually available on the resulting item.

In my case I've got an API token of type: credential and when I successfully refresh the state, the following JSON output is given

  "category" = "custom"
  "database" = tostring(null)
  "hostname" = ""
  "id" = "vaults/(private)/items/(private)"
  "password" = tostring(null)
  "port" = tostring(null)
  "section" = tolist([])
  "tags" = tolist([])
  "title" = "Cloudflare Token"
  "type" = "bearer"
  "url" = tostring(null)
  "username" = ""
  "uuid" = "(private)"
  "vault" = "(private)"

You'll notice that the section key is just an empty list, there is no password, and I can't get to any of the actual credentials. However if I query /v1/vaults/{vault-uuid}/items/{item-uuid} I get the following output

  "id": "(private)",
  "title": "Cloudflare Token",
  "version": 2,
  "vault": {
    "id": "(private)"
  "category": "API_CREDENTIAL",
  "fields": [
      "id": "notesPlain",
      "type": "STRING",
      "purpose": "NOTES",
      "label": "notesPlain"
      "id": "username",
      "type": "STRING",
      "label": "username"
      "id": "credential",
      "type": "CONCEALED",
      "label": "credential",
      "value": "(private)"
      "id": "type",
      "type": "MENU",
      "label": "type",
      "value": "bearer"
      "id": "filename",
      "type": "STRING",
      "label": "filename"
      "id": "validFrom",
      "type": "DATE",
      "label": "valid from"
      "id": "expires",
      "type": "DATE",
      "label": "expires"
      "id": "hostname",
      "type": "STRING",
      "label": "hostname"

My question is: is the terraform-provider-onepassword not able to be used for reading credentials at this time, or is there something wrong with how the object was created/sections generated? I'd have assumed that credential would be mapped to password, or at the very least the section key under onepassword_item would be filled out with the fields above.

Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated :sweat:

    Currently the Terraform Provider only has support for login, password, and database item categories. API Credentials and other Item category support is something our team is working on.
