Use multifactor authentication with the LDAP Interface

If your org has implemented MFA for admin users, you need to include your MFA token information and your admin password when you sign in to the LDAP Interface.

For short message service (SMS) and voice verification, generate the token before doing the BIND. For example, after you sign in and press Send Code and an SMS is sent to the phone. You can then do a BIND and SEARCH with that SMS in the format of password, text code.

The format for entering your password and MFA token is:


For example, you enter the following for Okta Verify:


where password is your admin user password, and 123456 is the Okta Verify passcode.
