Hi, I recently encountered a problem with SSH - 'Agent Refused Operation' when I trying to use SSH agent to login my server.

Through other discussion I found this log file and found the following message.

~/Library/Group Containers/2BUA8C4S2C.com.1password/Library/Application Support/1Password/Data/logs/1Password_rCURRENT.log

So I realized that I was using a macbook with a touchid, but I was using an external monitor and closing the screen. At this point this problem is bound to appear. When I opened the laptop, It was able to pop up the authorization box for touchid correctly.
