H All.  I'm having a real issue with MFA when it comes to moving a clients users from On-Premise to Online.  The admin account i am using is MFA enabled and this cannot be disabled.  I am getting really frustrated with having to authorize the login for the account every time ( or so it seems ) a user is moved. 

 

I am using a csv file so importing and then running the Move-csuser command in powershell.  Is there a single command to stop this from happening or to force O365 to accept the fist time authorization...

Did you try with an App Password?

Another solution is to temporary add conditional access that bypass MFA for that user from On-Premises servers during the migration period.
