Verify Enrollment of Authentication Factors

Use this API to verify enrollment for OneLogin SMS, OneLogin Email, OneLogin Protect and Authenticator authentication factors.

At this point, the enrollment of the factor should have already been requested, and this API will allow you to verify the OTP code sent to or generated for the user on the provided factor. The status of the registration should be pending. If the initial registration was completed with veriifed = True then this step will not be necessary.

The API supports enrollment for SMS, Email, Google Authenticator, and OneLogin Protect. Other factors can be enrolled manually by the user. Duo is supported for OTP factors, but registration isn’t supported.
