How can we improve Azure Active Directory?

Pre-Provision MFA "StrongAuthenticationUserDetails" via PowerShell?

We have over 12,000 users we need to provision for MFA.

I know we can enable MFA via PowerShell, but there doesn't seem to be a way to update the "StrongAuthenticationUserDetails" attribute (Alt. Phone, Email, etc.) programmatically.

This is turning out to be a huge pain for us. Does anyone have a timeline for when we'll be able to do this?

    Oh yes, please. We're looking to do this for all of our users going forward, and not being able to do so in automation will be... well, not doable.

    I'd like to see some traction on this. We want to pre-populate the "StrongAuthenticationUserDetails" via powershell to alleviate the users to validate the phone number. We already have their phone number in local systems. We can edit these fields via Azure gui/portal, why can't the permissions be set so we can do the same via powershell?

    Any ETA on this feature? I can create the object in Powershell but I'm unable write/apply it to the Azure user.

    We need powershell/ ADSYNC engine to populate info directly into this attributes StrongAuthenticationUserD

    Please let us know if there are any updates to share or an estimated timeline. This has a huge impact on our decision to select a new Identity Management solution.
