The Web Password Filler is a login helper that can be used on any web site with a login. To use the Web Password Filler you need to drag a link on to the bookmark bar of your browser. The link is available by going to any secret which uses the web password template or any other template that has a searchable URL.
Once you have the link on your browser bookmark toolbar, it is ready to use. Navigate to the login page of the site you wish to log in to, and then click the Web Former Filler link. A dialog will open on the login page with the Password Filler. The Password Filler will show you available secrets that you may use to login. It will also permit you to create new secrets for the website.
Owners and Editors of a secret can edit the mapping of secret fields to the corresponding fields on the login screen. The mapping process ensures that secret data is going to the correct location. The login button can also be mapped. If the login button is mapped, then the Password Filler can log you in. Creating the mapping is straight forward; click the edit button of the secret on the Form Filler, then click the secret fields in the Password Filler and the corresponding fields on the login form.
It is recommended that the Web Password Filler is used with Secret Server running on HTTPS. Some browsers will not permit you to use the Web Password Filler on an SSL secured web site if the Password Filler is interacting with Secret Server without SSL.
Note about IE:
For the Web Password Filler to work in Internet Explorer, the Secret Server website must be in the Trusted Sites Zone.
In IE 10 and higher, the Web Password Filler may ask users to log in even after they have already authenticated to Secret Server. Until a fix is available, the workaround for this is to add Secret Server to a list of managed sites in IE. To do so:
- Click the gear icon at the top-right corner of the browser window, and then click Internet Options.
- Select the Privacy tab, and then click Sites.
- Enter the full URL for your instance of Secret Server in the Address of website: field.
- Click Allow, and then OK. Click OK to close the Internet Options window.
- Restart IE and test using the Web Password Filler once more. Note that if you are required to log into Secret Server by the Web Password Filler, you will need to reopen it on the page after you have logged in.
