    Hi @Corval!

    does not work

    Can you elaborate? Do you get an error message perhaps? If so, what does the error message say?

  • I can sign in no problem and i have managed to list items before. So the next stage is to amend/update the record . I enter as above and then i get this . What i don't understand is the format of the command i seen the full documentation but still don't know if what i am doing is correct.

    Hello Corval,

    Thanks for providing the screenshot, I'm a developer that works on the 1Password CLI and I think I can be of assistance.

    I understand that the example includes square brackets wrapping the section like the following: [<section>.]<field>=<value>

    The square brackets around the section part represents that it is an optional field.

    So you can supply a command such as: op edit item [uuid number] "other items.Policy=Test"

    or if the Policy field name is unique for the item, then you can simply omit the section, such as: op edit item [uuid number] policy=Test

    Note that spaces can be omitted in section and field names when specifying an assignment, and also that it is not case sensitive for your convenience.

    I hope this approach works out for you, and please do not hesitate to reach out to us again if you run into additional issues!
