Auth failures MFA

Brass Contributor

Hoping someone can confirm something for me and possibly help with another.  Logons failing at MFA stage.


Looking at AzureAD logs I see a multifactor event (Authentication requirement = Multifactor authentication) with a status of "Success" but also a Failure reason of "Other."  It also has nothing in the "Multifactor authentication result" or "Multifactor authentication".


Am I right in saying that the status of "Success" is for the user credentials first entered?

If not then why would it say Success when there is also a Failure reason of "Other."?


What is Failure reason "Other."

it seems although the overall authentication process was marked as successful, there might have been some irregularity or unexpected event that occurred during the process. The reason is classified as "Other" because it doesn't fit into any predefined categories.
