Command-line utility only for membership users?

Is use of the 1Password command-line utility limited to subscribers of 1Password and not available for the owners of the stand-alone license? I ask because I can't move past the op signin command (which requires a secret key and an email address).

1password's support page says that secret keys are limited to subscription accounts (

What do stand-alone license owners need to provide in the "op signin" command?

    @BobbyNYC The CLI is indeed for 1Password membership accounts only, we do not have a CLI tool that works with standalone vaults. There are however some open source tools available on GitHub that were created by community members that can work with OPVaults.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions!

  • Much appreciate the response! Thanks!
