How to use Multi-factor-authentication on the mainframe and version 12.1 of OMWV (Web Viewer). Getting LOGON/JOB INITIATION - MULTIFACTOR AUTHENTICATION FAILURE.
The user signs into the page using their MFA credentials and is led to the advanced search screen with the repositories listed. If the user selects the repository, the password is passed to the repository as it was entered at initial logon (which has now expired), and it returns as a failed logon - Strike One. If the user clicks on another repository, Strike Two, and so on. By the end of their session, the user is suspended.
How do we set up OMWV so it will not automatically log into the repository when clicked, and instead pull up a user/pw box? In the credentials panel, there is the ability to store different passwords for different repositories, but these are static. Populating that field, then switching back to the main screen to select the repository before the password expires is not practical. How does 12.1 Web Viewer support MFA?
Release : 12.1

The process described above was written to allow the use of MFA for the Repository Logons.
