Hello im trying to open a specific item in the desktop app using its UUID. Does 1password 7 have a URI (onepassword://uuid/) or command line arg (onepassword.exe --UUID ) that will do this?

1Password Version: 7
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Windows 10

    Hey @Garulf:

    If you'd like to open an item inside 1Password 7 using a link, you can do that by following these steps:
    1. Locate the item you'd like to open inside 1Password 7.
    2. Right click the item in the list, choose Copy Private Link.
    3. You'll get a URL that begins with
    4. Replace with onepassword://, resulting in a URL that looks like onepassword://open/i?....

    Using that should open the expected item in 1Password 7. Let me know how you get on with that!

    Hi @Jack.P_1P !

    Thank you for replying!

    I do not see an option to copy a private link:

    I assume this is because I use local vaults and not a subscription?
