Logging in with TOTP and compound in-band authentication
You can log in with a valid TOTP OTP token code and a passphrase or password. Your administrator must have configured your account for IBM® MFA Compound In-Band.
About this task
This alternate login flow is not needed if your administrator has configured your account for identity tokens. Identity tokens are configured on your behalf, and are not something you directly use.
Perform the following steps:
- Begin to log in with your user name.
- Run the TOTP application.
- Tap the account you created to select it.
- Generate the TOTP OTP. This OTP is valid for 15, 30, or 60 seconds as determined by your security administrator and can be used only once.
Manually enter or copy/paste the OTP as the password as appropriate, followed by the
separator, followed by your passphrase or password.
Note: Your security administrator can reverse the order in which you enter the credentials, so that you enter your passphrase or password first, followed by the separator. Consult your security administrator for guidance.
