Get Available Authentication Factors

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.

The API supports enrollment of SMS, Voice, Email, Google Authenticator, and OneLogin Protect.
