    @AnBeSG ,

    Would you like some Remote help? If so, send me an email (my email is at the top of the script), and we'll get this solved quickly.

    Just a quick follow-up. I created a slightly modified version of the converter to work with @AnBeSG's Mountain Lion (10.8.5) system, and he has since converted from HandySafe.

    A Hat's Off to @thightower for the assist.

    @MrC

    Thanks for the information. I'll give this a shot

    One question. If 1Password has an internal (unique) name for each field, and section are these defined/listed somewhere?

    I'd like the imports to replicate the default sections and fields, if possible

    Best regards
    Peter

    Great! Let me know how it goes.

    Each category in 1Password has a set of fields know by certain keywords. These are not unique across all categories, only within a category. You can see these names in the file Utils/Pif.pm, in the large table of categories and their fields.

    The converter tries to best map a password manager's categories into 1Password's.

    Firstly, thanks for the help on this.

    Between the guidance posted on this forum (thank you all :-) and the direct help from @MrC and his conversion script I have successfully transferred my secure information from SplashId to 1Password.

    Feel free to close this request as "Fixed"

    Thanks again

    Thanks @fowlesp,

    With your great testing and encouragement, you prompted me to add the new --allfields (or -a) option to the SplashID converter. This option causes those fields that don't map one-to-one with 1Password fields to be placed as custom fields within a custom section instead of going to the notes section for the entry.

    I'll start adding this capability to other converters.

    I have just downloaded 1Password after giving up on SplashID. There have been too many times that their server was down and I could not access my info. - not good. I am not a computer whiz at all, so I see posts above about SplashID and it's like reading German to me. Can you tell me if there is a simple way to export my info from SplashID and import it into 1Password?
    Thank you!

    @Higgins_Sweden ,

    Sure, I'm happy to help.

    You can ignore all the posts in this thread - they are mostly one-on-one help and requests from individual users. So let's get started with yours...

    Which OS are you using?

  • Higgins_SwedenHiggins_Sweden

    El Capitan version 10.11

    @Higgins_Sweden ,

    Ok, Great.

    Go ahead and follow the instructions in the first post in this thread. Download the converter package, and export your SplashID data as per the instructions in the included README.pdf. Open the AppleScript Helper, and select SplashID, and then select your exported SplashID file and follow the few remaining steps.

    Great thank you! It worked! How do I change the icons for each of the items to personalize them?

    Hi @Higgins_Sweden,

    Good to hear of your success.

    If you have Rich Icons enabled, many / most of your Login items will pull rich icons from the AgileBits icon service.

    To add your own icons, you can paste images into the icon area when you edit an item.

    Great thank you! It worked! How do I change the icons for each of the items to personalize them?

    @Higgins_Sweden: Indeed, just select an item, click Edit over on the right, and then you can either drag an image to the icon at the top, or double-click the default icon to select an image manually. I hope this helps! :)

    I've been a long time user and advocate of mSecure but over the past year or so it's become clear they've fallen behind on development. I was frightened of having to move over to another platform though, once I found this nifty little tool though I dove right in. It worked flawlessly and in just a matter of minutes. Thanks for making such a great tool that brought me over to 1Password.

  • MrCMrC

    @WGFinley,

    You're welcome.

    By the way, I'm almost finished with making changes to the converter suite to support mapping all of the unmapped fields that goes to the Notes section as key:value pairs to be instead mapped to custom fields in the record. The mSecure converter is already done. Let me know if you want to use it.

    @MrC I didn't have too many that came over into there so I think I'm good. Good luck with the update, I hope AgileBits is including some commission for you, don't think I would have purchased without a tool like yours available. :)

    Hi @Femaven ,

    Can you tell me exactly which Strawberry Perl version you grabbed?

    That error message doesn't even make sense, given that the file convert_to_1p4.pl does not contain the text "en" class anywhere.

    What are the first 10 lines of the convert_to_1p4.pl script?

  • FemavenFemaven
    Community Member

    @MrC
    Strawberry Perl (64-bit) 5.16.3.1-64bit
    As to the question about the en class I think the markup was included in the file I downloaded somehow.

  • MrCMrC

    @Femaven,

    That does appear to be XML, and I have no idea why Github would do that.

    Just grab the version here, or even the 1.08 version in the _testing folder.

    The iCloud Keychain copy/past did not work for me on OSX El Capitan, claiming System Events got an error: window 1 of process "SecurityAgent". Invalid index.
    number -1719 from window 1 of process "SecurityAgent"

    Only some items are paste in the local-icloud keychain.
    Export to a local copy with the Terminal app exist in an empty; pm_export-icloud.txt

    login Keychain works fine.
    Used Version 1.07

    Hi @marceljanssen,

    You must have run the AppleScript to auto-click the Allow button. I didn't write that script, and it can fail (it has two "race conditions").

    Basically, the script tests to see if the security program is running, and if it is, tries click click Allow in the top-most dialog window. When the security program completes just a split-second after that test, and the AppleScript is still moving along trying to click that Allow button, it fails because that window does not exist.

    The other race condition occurs when the script tries to click before the dialog has added the next iteration of the dialog.

    The author of that script should have handled these expected failure cases, but didn't. I'm actually in the process of adding the feature to the AppleScript Conversion Helper, so that it will all be done for you automatically (and of course, I'll handle that failure cases).

    Try changing the delay 0.2 to delay 0.75 and re-run it. It will take longer, but it is more likely to complete.

    You should use version 1.08 in Testing Bits, since it has some bug fixes in the keychain converter.

    @MrC
    Thanks for your explanation.

    Strange but after put version 1.08 on de desktop (Keychain.app was closed) and open Keychain.app is see that nearly all the keys has been copied in local-cloud keychain. I think it has noting to do with putting version 1.08 on de desktop. But I have now something to export.
    Export the local copy of my iCloud Keychain will still exist in an empty; pm_export-icloud.txt
    Using the Terminal app code; security dump-keychain -d local-icloud > ~/Desktop/pm_export-icloud.txt

    Is there another way to export my local copy of my local-icloud keychain?

    @marceljanssen ,

    That's correct. The converter knows nothing about your Keychain data, cannot add items, nor see them in anyway. It only deals with the manually exported Keychain data.

    Another user mentioned the problem with the command you run, and I've since updated the instructions, which had a typo. Your command's keychain name needs to end with .keychain:

    security dump-keychain -d local-icloud.keychain > ~/Desktop/pm_export-icloud.txt

    @MrC
    Many thanx!

    Yes, It works!
    I was using and old string from version 1.04 that I all ready used in the Terminal and activate with the previous function. Now I see also the one end with .keychain in the README.pdf

    Hello - MrC - thank you so much for all your work, but I've run into a problem and I'm stumped - I can't copy ANYTHING from my iCloud keychain to my newly created local keychain - I select one item from then iCloud keychain, and when I paste to the local-iCloud keychain, I'm prompted for the password to the local keychain, I enter that, and then I get an error message - "An error has occurred. Unable to add an item to the current keychain. The contents of this item cannot be retrieved." (Note this is a simple copy of one item - I tried this after the full copy/paste failed. And I'm entering the (correct) password manually - I'm not even trying to use the AppleScript). Any idea? I'm stumped. I AM able to copy from my login keychain to the new iCloud-local keychain, just not from the iCloud keychain. I'm on the latest OS X El Capitan (10.11.2). Thank you

    @BenWaldman ,

    I believe this means your keychain is out of sync with iCloud. Try searching Google with the error message. I am not at my system right now.

    I experienced this once and believe I had to disable iCloud Keychain syncing, and then reanble it. I think I had to do this on all the devices, so that the iCloud copy was removed.
