I've implemented authentication dialog for print jobs in Jobs dialog inside Printers panel of gnome-control-center. It shows up only if there is a job which needs authentication. Then an infobar is shown in the top with number of jobs which needs authentication and "Authenticate" button which reveals a popup dialog for entering credentials. Clicking "Authenticate" button in it authenticates the jobs. You were not able to authenticate such jobs before (although it is mostly needed only when you use a SMB printer which needs authentication).

One more change is that the Jobs dialog requests more horizontal space and ellipsizes long titles of print jobs.

The design was made by Allan Day and patches were reviewed by Felipe Borges.

You can see screenshots of this change here:

Could you approve this change?

Thank you
