Need you input here.
RPA - UiPath
Problem statement – Manage MFA to login to client based applications. (Client application like workday and SharePoint using Client AD authentication to authenticate)
Solution tried and working – We have tried to explore UiPath package and found one – UiPathTeam.TwoStepAuthentication.Activities which is developed by UiPath Team ,which helps to receive MFA-token. There are some setting that needs to be done with MS-authenticator to generate Secret key which is input for the activity.
Is this Package develop and support by UiPath Team (officially) ?
Also we just want to know how much is safe for client data and environment ?
what is there in the background that gets triggered ? Is it consuming any third party API to get token or Microsoft API are consumed ?
Hi Team, Any details about
Is it consuming any third party API to get token or Microsoft API are consumed ? what is getting called in background ?
Tokens are generated based on time so in theory there are no API calls happening.
If the token generation fails due to time de-sync (your computer clock could be set to an inaccurate time), it seems the activity will try to do a simple http/GET to try and get a timestamp that is reliable, but that’s pretty much it.
TL;DR: if your computer clock is accurate enough (no more than a couple minutes off) there are no external API calls.
Hi Quentin Brandon,
thanks for the response.
what i wanted to know here, what is that getting called in background which helps to get the token ? when we are using this activity i.e. UiPathTeam.TwoStepAuthentication.[Activities]
Need help here.
If you add details around, what is that getting called in background which helps to get the token when we are calling this activity.
