Provide a programmatic way to request Azure MFA verification of users.
Provide a programmatic way to request verification of users (e.g. push, sms, etc) via Azure MFA.
I would use this in two ways:
a. Custom step-up authentication in our custom applications, where we want to do a push auth, but we don’t want the user to enter a password.
b. Allowing help desk analysts to authenticate users remotely before providing assistance.
A competitor has a similar restful API:

I've been looking for something similar. Our organization already uses Microsoft's MFA solutions and I want to enable the IVR phone system to send a notification to verify identity of the caller without having to rely on Personal Identifiable Information being entered.
Since Authenticator now supports biometric locking and verification, we can MFA with "Something they own" (Phone Number/Phone) and "Something they are" (Biometric).
Microsoft, please look into this!
