Get Enrolled Authentication Factors

Use this API to return a list of authentication factors registered to a particular user for multifactor authentication (MFA).

This API is typically used in a login workflow in which MFA is required, providing the user a selection of their registered MFA devices to choose from. The returned list represents the authentication factors that have been registered by the user on their Profile page or on the OneLogin login page or custom login page.

This API only returns factors that are enrolled and can be verified via API.
