request: remember application approval for SSH agent

Community Member

my intelliJ app has Git Toolbox plugin which checks git via SSH every 10 minutes. Due to this, I continuously get 1Password 8 on macOS asking if I want to allow this PHPStorm to access the SSH key.
Can you please add an option to remember the setting? Otherwise I need to revert moving to the 1password 8 SSH agent.

1Password Version: 8.9.4
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS
Browser:_ Not Provided

    That doesn't sound right! So are you getting prompted on every single Git fetch? Without 1Password locking in the mean time? If so, it would be helpful if you could collect and submit your SSH agent diagnostics, as described here. And also include your PhpStorm version number.

    You should only be prompted once here, until 1Password locks.

    Does he even need to prompt ever? apart from once - I don't mean once per system reboot, or once per 1password lock/unlock session, I mean once and done for life.. Im okay with unlocking 1password every reboot, but if I have to unlock a dozen private keys (there a reason for a dozen separate) each time I reboot Im going back to keepassxc as my ssh-agent

    keepassxc has this nailed. Just the end user or at least let us override some config file to allow this, beyond annoying

    Sorry, i'm unable to provide this.

    i'm constantly locking my computer when i leave it (coffee / bathroom / phone call). So having to confirm phpStorm / webStorm access to the SSH key again is terribly annoying.
    Also, when i'm watching a movie, 1password's prompt is popping up for phpStorm over the movie - and for some reason not just once. It happened 3+ times (may have been different keys).

    Overall, good thought having SSH keys in 1password: but real world, the prompts are overboard. As @sitepodmatt mentioned: the request should be once per app, and it's set for that app.

    I can't recommend my company turn this on until it's matured, and i've turned it off now and gone back to the files.
