  10. Select the Sign On tab to configure sign on rules for this app.
  11. Scroll to the Sign On Policy section.
  12. The default setting for User assigned this policy for this app is Require Multifactor every sign on. Create another sign on rule if you don't want to prompt some or all of your users for MFA. Assign users to the new rule and clear the Prompt for factor checkbox. Click Save when finished. Your system configuration is complete.

    Okta sign on policy doesn't apply to Microsoft RDP (MFA). Okta only evaluates the app sign on policy defined in this step.
