User Authentication / Verification via MS Authenticator Application

Akhil R Kumar 0 Reputation points

The expectation is to have a feature in MS Authenticator that will let our tech team to invoke an On-Demand Push Notification to partners as a Security Validation to verify if the person on the other end of the call is actually the one who he/she is claiming to be. Similar feature is offered on DUO, OKTA and other 2 factor authentication applications.

The feature to invoke the On-Demand Push Notification will be housed in the Entra Portal or Azure Portal.
