After adding a factor to an Okta user, the next step is to have the user setup their factor and then prove that they have done that by answering a challenge with their token.

Continuing on from the steps above:

  1. Open Google Authenticator on your phone.
  2. Tap the + button in Google Authenticator.
  3. Select the Scan barcode option.
  4. Scan the QR Code on the browser tab you opened previously.
  5. Switch to Postman on your computer.
  6. From the Factors (Okta API) collection, select the POST Activate TOTP Factor request template.
  7. Replace the {userId} and {factorId} templates with the User ID and Factor ID values that you've copied previously.
  8. In the JSON body, replace the passCode value with the passcode shown on Google Authenticator.
  9. Click the blue Send button.
