Hi Team, I am getting this below mentioned error while retrieving the secrets in GitHub Actions from 1Password using "Load-secrets-action".

Run 1password/load-secrets-action@v1

/usr/bin/sh -c /home/runner/work/_actions/1password/load-secrets-action/v1/

Authenticated with CONNECT


extracting: /usr/local/bin/op.sig

inflating: /usr/local/bin/op

Populating variable: SECRET

Error: 2023/01/02 13:39:51 could not read secret op://demo1/sample-password/password: could not retrieve vaults: decoding response: invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value

Error: The process '/usr/bin/sh' failed with exit code 1

Kindly assist in this case. I got the same error while using the Terraform modules as well.

    Same issue here as well. (More or less - using the github action script in a gitlab-ci environment). op --version is 2.12.0

  • Hi there! Thanks for reaching out. Based on the error log I suspect that your request is not hitting Connect and instead some other service like the load balance, nginx, etc. This is due to the invalid character < looking for beginning of value error, that suggest that you receiving an html body rather than a json response. What happens if you curl $OP_CONNECT_HOST/health?
