Identity Patterns with the WSO2 Identity Server
Multi-factor authentication for WSO2 Identity Server management console

Problem:
  • Enable MFA for the WSO2 Identity Server Management Console. 
  • In other words, the Identity Server’s Management Console itself must be protected with MFA.
Solution:
  • Introduce WSO2 Identity Server as a service provider to itself. 
  • Under the service provider configuration, configure multi-step authentication having authenticators, which support MFA in each step. 
  • Enable SAML SSO carbon authenticator through the corresponding configuration file.
