Multi-Factor V2 API
These V2 APIs are in early preview and may be subject to change. Please refer to our V1 APIs for current production use.
Updates made in V2 MFA API’s
Added support for registration and verification of more MFA factors. V2 endpoints provide support for SMS, Voice, Email, Google Authenticator, and OneLogin Protect.
Key limitations of Early Preview Release
Currently there are two limitations of these BETA API’s. In a future release both of these will be enabled.
- No support for providing a custom SMS message within the SMS MFA trigger.
- No support for specifying the OTP type between numeric and alphanumeric as part of the MFA trigger.
Changes from V1
- Verification of OneLogin Protect was previously done using POST. Check out the new way to verify the user has accepted the push notification or OneLogin voice call.
- Only activated factors are returned when retrieving the list of enrolled factors or devices. Check out how to retrieve authentication factors.
- GET /devices has device_id instead of id
