The Support Agent experience will be similar to the End User experience except that it will be occurring inside the WP-ADMIN center. The support agent will be able to access any Private Credentials that the customer has provided by clicking on the “View Private Credentials” link in the metabox on the right hand side of the ticket.
Because it is a metabox, it can be located anywhere on the right hand side so, in your installation of WordPress you might have to scroll down a a bit to find it. However, the link will look similar to that shown in the green circle in the image below.
When clicked, the following form will pop up:
The agent can then use the data via standard copy-and-paste key-board key combinations.
Note: Good security practice would be to have all agents delete the credentials after using them. They can do this using the DELETE button.
In order for the end-user to access the Private Credentials form they must first create a ticket AND save/submit that ticket. Once that has been completed, a new button will appear on the ticket named Enter Private Credentials. You can see where that is generally located on the ticket in the image below – circled in green.
When the user clicks that button they will be shown the Private Credentials form as shown in the image below:
This form initially looks complicated but it is very easy to use. Most users usually have just one set of credentials to use. So the form is set up to allow them to start entering data right away into the fields shown.
Clicking the SAVE button will save the credentials to the ticket.
Should the user need to provide multiple sets of credentials, they can do so by using the ADD CREDENTIALS button.
The user can then simply fill in the fields and click the SAVE button again to add an additional set of credentials.
When the user is ready to exit the form and return to the ticket they can simply click the CLOSE button.
When the ticket is refreshed (the user can click CTRL-R to refresh), the Private Credentials button will show a number in parentheses that correspond to the number of private credentials stored on the ticket.
Clicking the View Private Credentials button again will pop up the form to display the data that was previously entered.
