  3. To enable or disable the global YubiKey multi-factor method, slide the toggle On or Off.

  4. Set any the following configurations.

    Yubico OTP

    Select this option to give access to a user who has a YubiKey to generate an encrypted one-time passcode (OTP).

    OATH HOTP

    Select this option to give access to a user who has a YubiKey to generate an encrypted six-, eight-, or nine-character one-time (OTP) event-based passcode using OATH-HOTP. This means that a new one-time passcode is generated for each event.

    Passcode length

    Set the passcode length at six, eight, or nine digits for your YubiKey and Authentication App methods.

  5. Click Save.

Next steps

Configure a policy on the Multi-Factor Methods tab to allow users to authenticate using non-FIDO2 YubiKeys in the login workflow.
