Migrating from Azure MFA Server to MFA Cloud
Need a migration method for migrating from Azure MFA Server to Azure MFA Cloud, without all our users having to re-register.
We are planning to provide a migration path to customers from MFA server to cloud MFA.
If you are using voice and SMS, you can already use the Authentication methods APIs to migrate the data: https://docs.microsoft.com/graph/api/resources/authenticationmethods-overview
If you are using the Authenticator app, users can enable Phone Sign-in to authenticate without passwords in the cloud: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/authentication/howto-authentication-passwordless-phone#azure-mfa-server
Almost 2 years and no status update. Sounds like this has gone to sleep.

This is needed for us as well. We have over 1700 users to migrate to a mfa platform from on-premise and we will go with the solution that makes it the easiest.

The export should by default not be able to include the MFA part of the configuration, as of wich you will need to configure http://ak.ms/mfasetup, configure your App and delete the old authenticator entry.

It should be possible to provision / migrate the MFA profile from On-Prem to Cloud.
This is considered as an security issue, hence it should be possible to do it if you have an Intune enrolled device and the Authenticator app on same device to ensure that it is the same owner.
You could manually add the MFA info into each user account in Azure AD...
Yes please! I'm looking for this as well

Can anyone refer me to the article for this procedure?
Any news on this?

This will be critical for us once MFA Cloud has feature parity (getting closer!)

We also need this sort of tool to be able to do a low impact migration to Azure MFA !
