      Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

      Users who sign in with SSO can’t use Capella’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution. Instead, they use the configured identity provider’s MFA.
      To enable MFA for your Capella account, you need: 1Password, Authy, LastPass Authenticator, or Microsoft Authenticator.
      Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

          It then shows a six-digit verification code.

        3. Enter the six-digit verification code into Capella.

          Capella activates multi-factor authentication for your account. You now need to use your MFA app to generate a TOTP when signing in to the Capella UI.
