Support » Plugin: Zendesk Support for WordPress » Cannot login to Zendesk from the WordPress dashboard

  • Resolved blakeage


    When I attempt to login via the Zendesk Support Login widget on the admin dashboard, it says “We could not authenticate you with Zendesk, please try again!”; however, I have set the subdomain correctly, and I’m able to login to Zendesk with the same credentials. I’m on the latest WordPress (4.9.6).

    What version of php are you running?


    I am having the same exact problem except I am on WordPress version 4.9.5 and I am running php 7.2.0.

    Hi, can you check the following in your Zendesk settings:

    1. Check that password access is enabled in your API settings

    Settings (Gear button) -> API -> Settings -> Password Access.

    2. Check that Two-Factor isn’t enabled for your Zendesk Account, as the wordpress extension currently does not support 2FA.

    If either of this doesn’t work, would you be able to try performing the following troubleshooting steps:

    There has been a recent change with how Zendesk’s API handles TLS connections and this may have caused some issues with accessing the API.

    A fix has made it out that resolves issues with the TLS connection to the Zendesk API.

    Please verify that version 1.7.2 fixes this issue for you.

    Unfortunately, I can’t verify because I am no longer working on this issue and no longer have access. Thank you for your time.
