Get Available Authentication Factors

Use this API to return a list of authentication factors that are available for user enrollment via API.

Once a factor has been enrolled by a user it will no longer be returned in this request.

For a full list of Factors that a user has enrolled via UI or API use the Get Enrolled Factors call.

Currently the API only supports enrollment of OneLogin SMS and OneLogin Voice factors. Other factors can be enrolled manually by the user.
