Generate MFA Token for OTP without password

Hi, I want to generate an MFA token without passing user credentials. (email, password)

Use case is I want to integrate OTP on users changing their password inside my application as the last step of changing their password.

However I need to get an mfa_token to use along with OTP code provided in user’s authenticator.


Hello @jbrb welcome to our community!

mfa_tokens are produced as part of an error in an authentication flow called mfa_required.

There is no way to generate an mfa_token without an error in the authentication flow.

We recommend you to search for an alternative solution that fits your requirements.

Thank you!
