Creating custom logon entries ... ?

Community Member

I can't be the first person to have asked this question, but for some reason all my searches here have come up short. If someone has a good link for me, please redirect. I am probably just not using the right vernacular.

I am trying to modify and/or create a custom logon entry in 1Password for Mac for a website I visit. In addition to the usual logon (e-mail) and password, the site requires a code "0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000" to unlock my account. Is there some way I can create a custom secton in the existing 1Password logon entry to recognize this field when presented, and then populate it on command?

Hope that makes sense.

    The usual solution for problems like this is to re-create and save the login manually. You might try that to see if it works.

    Thanks Stephen-

    I have tried that a few times, but to no avail. The problem is: this particular logon sequence is happening across two web pages. The first page asks for the e-mail and password, which works fine. But the second page asks for the special code, and doesn't work at all I've tried creating a login entry manually and then updating it with the additional information, but nothing happens in 1Password. It just seems to ignore my request for update.

    Is there no way to create en entry that says:

    IF web form of name "code" appears in the HTML
    THEN provide the text of "0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000" to fill

    Something like that?

    Hi @seattle_expat,

    There's no way to manually edit a Login item in 1Password with that information, apart from putting that code in the main "password" field. But, that would obviously cause a problem for filling your actual password with that same Login item.

    It sounds like you're trying to update a single Login item that will be able to fill all the fields on the first and second pages of the site. That will work for some multi-page login forms, but in a situation like this one (username & password on the first page, separate code on the second page) you'll probably need to create 2 separate Login items, if possible. The first Login item would be for the first page of that site and would fill your username and password (so you may already have a working Login item for that). The second Login item would be for the second page and would fill that code.

    To try to create that second Login item, follow these steps:

    • Go to the 2nd page of the site and enter your code (but do not submit the form).
    • Click the 1Password icon in your browser’s toolbar (or in the Mac's menu bar).
    • Click the 'gear' icon and select Save new Login.
    • Give this new Login item a unique name so it's easy to tell apart from the first Login item.
    • Click Save.

    If that works, then the next time you sign into that site, you'll use the 1st Login item on the first page, and the 2nd Login item on the second page. Please let us know how it all goes and if you run into any difficulty. Thanks!
