Getting started with op.exe

Hi,
I have problems to getting started with the command line tool - I understand to use it in Powershell - no problem - but how do I save and use my session token? I can successfully sign in but the next command tells me that I first have to sign in?!? How to store and use the session token so I can go on with any other commands?
Thanks

    Hi @DevOma! Welcome to the forum!

    Our getting started guide for the CLI shows you how to store this information. Here is the direct link to the relevant section for you.

    Yes I know this link - and now I found the answer myself - I have to use the following statement

    Invoke-Expression $(op signin team_myteam)

    or just

    op signin team_myteam

    But now new problems - I want to signin without prompt and found how to do - but it is not working for me

    echo MyPwd | op signin team_myteam myemail mysecret

    Always when I add second and third parameter to "op signin" I get a message that my secret has changed and that I have to enter it again?!? Any hints?

    @DevOma Assuming that the account team_myteam is configured on your device, does echo MyPwd | op sigin team_myteam work?

    Obligatory note: If you are typing that line in an interactive terminal, then your Master Password will be recorded in the shell's history file, and thus exposing it to other processes.

  • $env:OP_SESSION_team_myteam="05LM9FcHHYCIXlauI24EhUSWeJO9alIktw6Un2Y17oQ"; # This command is meant to be used with PowerShell's Invoke-Expression cmdlet. Run 'Invoke-Expression $(.\op signin team_myteam)' (no quotes) to sign in to your 1Password account. Use the --raw flag to only output the session token.

    That's the output - and I'm not signed in afterwards

    I think I need the full command line - I'm trying to sync some of the data to another application - so every user must specify the account name/password/secret key to go on

    Is there any command I can try to automate the login process via Powershell / CommandLine? I would prefer a web api - but I think it should also working with this command line tool :-)

  • Now I tried from a second computer (where I can login via web / browser) - but when starting to login via Powershell I always get the error that my secret key is wrong / has changed - why? I can copy it from the web session - but it is not working for Powershell?!?

    Not easy to get it running like I want...

    Yes, that's to be expected since you have to pass the output of the command to Invoke-Expression. I just wanted to make sure you can signin at all when you pipe the Master Password.

    Just to clarify, when you tried to run

    echo MyPwd | op signin team_myteam myemail mysecret
    

    it was for the same account that is already configured on your device (i.e. the same account that you would log into when you do just op signin team_myteam)?

    I've seen this error before if either email address or the Secret Key had a typo. So please double check that that's all OK.

  • Ok, found an typo in the name of the subdomain - I have to use - instead of _ :-)

    Invoke-Expression $(op signin team-myteam myemail mysecret)

    Then enter the MasterPwd and it is working - but I can't use it without Invoke-Expression - no problem at all - but when I try to pipe the Password to Invoke-Expression it is not working anymore - if I use it without Invoke-Expression the following error is thrown

    $env:OP_SESSION_team_myteam="bO76yv1NyoUeIy0kEkNUYyEXDB5dk3QwOdxPkomGWpo"; # This command is meant to be used with PowerShell's Invoke-Expression cmdlet. Run 'Invoke-Expression $(.\op signin team_myteam)' (no quotes) to sign in to your 1Password account. Use the --raw flag to only output the session token.

    So I think I need some quotes in my command - but can't find the right way - command should like

    echo pwd | Invoke-Expression $(op signin team-myteam mymail mysecret)

    You have to use

    Invoke-Expression $(echo pwd | op signin team-myteam mymail mysecret)
    

    You passing the output of the op signin command to Invoke-Expression, but the input goes into op signin itself.

  • Great - that's working perfect - thanks a lot!
