1Password Connect Node SDK


The 1Password Connect Node SDK provides your JavaScript & TypeScript applications access to the 1Password Connect API hosted on your infrastructure and leverage the power of 1Password Secrets Automation

The library can be used by NodeJS applications, tools, and other automations to access and manage items in 1Password Vaults.


You can install the SDK using npm

npm install @1password/connect

or using Yarn

yarn add @1password/connect


Creating an API client

import { OnePasswordConnect, ItemBuilder } from "@1password/connect";

// Create new connector with HTTP Pooling
const op = OnePasswordConnect({
	serverURL: "http://localhost:8080",
	token: "my-token",
	keepAlive: true,

Retrieving Vaults

// Get all vaults
let allVaults = await op.listVaults();

// Get a specific vault
let vault = await op.getVault({vault_id});

Interacting with Items

const myVaultId = {vault_uuid};

// Create an Item
const newItem = new ItemBuilder()
        label: "Example",
        value: "MySecret",
        sectionName: "Demo Section",

const createdItem = await op.createItem(myVaultId, newItem);

// Get an Item
const item = await op.getItem(myVaultId, {item_uuid});

// Get Item by name
const namedItem = await op.getItemByTitle(myVaultId, "Example Title");

// Update an Item
item.title = "New Title";
const updatedItem = await op.updateItem(myVaultId, myItem);

// Delete an Item
await op.deleteItem(myVaultId, updatedItem.id);

Custom HTTPClient

You may provide a custom HTTPClient class to customize how the library sends requests to the server.

The HTTPClient must implement the IRequestClient interface:

import { ClientRequestOptions } from "./client";
interface IRequestClient {
	defaultTimeout: number;

		method: HTTPMethod,
		url: string,
		opts: ClientRequestOptions,
	): Promise<Response>;

You can use a custom client to:

  • handle proxy network access
  • add additional logging
  • use your own node HTTP request library

Defining ClientRequestOptions

The HTTPClient.request(method, url, opts) method requires an options argument. The following table describes each option:

Option Description Required
authToken The token used to authenticate the client to a 1Password Connect API. Yes
params Object with string key-value pairs to be used as querystring parameters No
data A string or object made up of key-value pairs. Defines the request body. No
headers Object with string key-value pairs. Merged with default headers. No
timeout Sets timeout value for the HTTP request. No

Logging with debug

The 1Password Connect JS client uses the debug library to log runtime information.

All log messages are defined under the opconnect namespace. To print log statements, include the opconnect namespace when defining the DEBUG environment variable:
