in CLI

For some time now we've been able to login successfully with:

op signin {domain} {email} {key} --raw --shorthand {email};

However, after upgrade to op version 2 we are getting the error:

unknown flag: --shorthand

From docs it seems that for shorthand we can use any string?

    Hi @LuisG! 👋

    The sign-in flow for 1Password CLI 2 works differently than version 1. In version 2, op signin signs you in to 1Password CLI using the 1Password desktop app integration. This allows you to use biometric unlock with the CLI.

    If you still want to use a manual authentication flow like in version 1, this article explains how to do that. You can set a shorthand for an account with op account add --shorthand <shorthand> then sign in with the following command:

    eval $(op signin --account <shorthand>)
    

    Let me know if that helps!

    Also, could I ask what documentation you were referring to? I'd love to update the docs to make this more clear.

    Hi @ag_tommy

    That was it, thanks.
    I was trying to login on v2 with outdated code.

    I don't remember how I got to the documentation, I guess by googling (but it was the official 1password docs). I must've not seen that the docs were for v1 (Although I do remember thinking it was important to check if it was for v1, or v2; and I couldn't easily find it)

    Thanks. I'm glad to hear things are working better for you.
