Sync CLI with App login?

To log in into some Apps I wrote Keyboard Maestro macros that open the 1Password GUI (Quick Access in v8) to fetch credentials (username, password, OTP). Unfortunately the search functionality of v8 is rather buggy; it irregularly does not return the result for a search string. Hence the log in will fail. This is becoming a major PITA each morning. Therefore I consider using the CLI instead of the GUI. However, I don't like the separate log in / logout (actually op signin and op signout) plus using an access token.

Would it be possible to allow CLI command if and only if the 1Password GUI is unlocked?

    Hi @XIII,

    Thank you for reaching out to us at 1Password. My name is Artem and I am a software developer on the team responsible for the CLI.

    Having the CLI unlocked from the 1Password app is actually being worked on for a future version of the CLI. I don't have any timelines to share at the moment, but this will be available in the near future.


  • Looking forward to that!
