A representation of a software OATH token registered to a user. A software OATH token is a software-based number generator that uses the OATH Time-Based One Time Password (TOTP) standard for multifactor authentication. This API won't return Microsoft Authenticator authentication method entities, though it returns an entity if Microsoft Authenticator was set up via the third-party software authenticator flow.

This is a derived type that inherits from the authenticationMethod resource type.
