SAML response

I have a question about saml response-

Is there a way to add to SAML response an attribute if the user used MFA? so the service provider will receive this information?

Haven't found this information on the internet.

    Thank you for posting this in Microsoft Q&A.

    As I understand when users try to access the application, you are looking for a claim in SAML response for user to see if user has done MFA or not.

    This is by default included in the claim. Attribute name is "authnmethodsreferences".

    If user has done MFA while accessing the application then output will be something like below,

    User's image

    If user has not done MFA and if they have accessed the application using password, then claim will look something like below,

    User's image

    Default claims in SAML response are mentioned in article below,

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
