  • Hi Bistro40,

    You can technically use MFA Server tags to achieve something like this but it is not advisable. Also, MFA Server will be deprecated in the not too distant future, so it is not a good long-term solution. 

    For cloud MFA this is not possible unless you use ADFS in combination with O365, where you can specify the authentication method to use on the 'Office 365 Identity Platform' relying party trust but there are a lot of restrictions for that method. When using ADFS, users won't be able to have fallback methods when one method is selected, and if they use the wrong method they'll receive multiple MFA prompts until they select the right method.
