#53658 new defect (bug)

Display a user-facing message when the application passwords functionality is not available

Reported by: johnbillion Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.6
Component: Application Passwords Keywords: needs-patch good-first-bug
Focuses: administration Cc:


The Application Passwords feature is not available on sites that don't use HTTPS (via is_ssl()). This applies to all environment types except "local" (via wp_get_environment_type()), which allows the feature to be used on non-HTTPS local environments.

When the feature isn't available there's no explanation shown to the user on the user profile editing screen, it simply doesn't appear. There should be an explanation provided with a link to related documentation about setting up HTTPS for production sites or setting the environment type for local environments.
