International Phone Numbers
When formatting international phone numbers, SecureAuth IdP requires the string to begin with the country code followed by a space – the country code format begins with a plus (+) symbol followed by the country code
For example, the SecureAuth sales phone number would be entered as +1 949 777 6959
The remainder of the numbers in the dial string can use any combination of the following separators: 'space', 'dash' or 'period'
Or the use of separators can be eliminated from the numeric string – e.g.+1 9497776959
National Phone Numbers
A national phone number can use any combination of the following separators: 'space', 'dash' or 'period'
Or the use of separators can be eliminated from the numeric string – e.g.9497776959
An email address should follow the format local-part@domain in which
the local-part may be up to 64 characters in length
the domain name may have a maximum of 255 characters as defined in RFC 5322 (sections 3.2.3 and 3.4.1)
