Is it possible to use 2FA/OTP authentication for AD trust users?

Solution Verified - Updated -


IdM doesn't support 2FA/OTP authentication when configured in a cross-forest trust with Active Directory.

Starting with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 the Identity Management server is capable of performing two-factor authentication as described in the documentation. This works when IdM is used directly for user management. Support to use 2FA/OTP with IdM that has a cross-forest trust with Active Directory is not possible.
