Tech in 5 minutes: Sending MFA requests to users.

Tech in 5 minutes is a new video series to help managed services providers, or technology specialists get small digestible bites about new technologies, complex scripts, and solutions you could be implementing in your MSP today. I’m fairly anti-tool culture where MSPs get a different tool for each minor inconvenience and focus just on that tool, so I’ll be focussed on modern technologies in the Microsoft stack, but also will cover other external tools if they make a big enough difference.

In just about 5 minutes I’ll try to explain what you can use the technology for, and even include the most basic setup to get it running. I hope you’ll enjoy the video content. This episode is about using my AzValidate or Azidentify scripts and how they function. This allows you to send an MFA request to users

Do you have any other technology or script you want me to cover? Let me know! 🙂

    This is awesome! We’ll totally be implementing this!

    This is really cool and should solve a problem with us moving off of Duo, however I’ve run into an issue that may be due to the interface changes in Azure.
    The “authentication classic” is missing, so I did enable app service authentication, restrict access to azure ID and that seems to be working fine.
    However, when I try to use the web app function, it tells me “Authentication failed. does the user have Push/Phone call MFA configured? Errorcode:”
    I’m wondering if maybe there’s a permission setting somewhere needed? Or do we need to more than just the generated password in the app creation (app ID, app secret)? Does an app of some sort need to be created first?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
