Description Paul Vine 2017-11-16 15:17:13 UTC
When you set 2 factor authentication (password + OTP) in the GUI you check a box that clearly states you are choosing 2 factor authentication which includes password and OTP. However if done through the command line the option is called OTP which the documentation states equates to 2 factor auth. Additionally the chapter title in the doc says "Command Line: Enabling OTP Authentication" which is really incorrect. It should be enabling 2 factor auth (password and OTP).
