GlobalProtect with Azure MFA setup

L0 Member

Has anyone had any luck setting up MFA on the Palo Alto with Global Protect with Microsoft Azure MFA (Hybrid) I tried opening a ticket with the support team and they said they had no clue how to setup but could support it if broken and told me a "Sales" Engineer would reach out to me sometime that day. That was 4 business days ago. 


I have been reading articles but have not had luck with them. Anyone have an Idiots guide to setting up Microsoft Azure MFA with Global protect?


PA Version: 8.1.15

Global Protect Client: 5.1.1

We are testing exactly this without Azure AD. We import the exported .XML file from Azure AD setup into Palo as a new SAML object and then attach that to the auth profile. We have been successful with basic user authentication.
