As an admin I want to be able to exclude bot users from 2FA requirement

Issue #14462 closed
Theodora Boudale staff created an issue

Problem Definition

Admins who enforce 2FA for their team, may sometimes want to exclude certain accounts from that requirement. An example scenario: a certain username is used by their CI server, and there is a bug in the CI system with accounts that have 2FA enabled: * https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-45129

Suggested Solution

Allow team admins to exclude accounts from the 2FA requirement on the team.

    Indeed, we need to take a closer look at these kinds of accounts to make sure they are supported properly.

    That said, it's not clear why can't an app password be used in this case.

    Given the low interest in this feature since it was raised, and since the team is currently focused on higher priority items, I am closing this issue to reflect that we won't be able to address this in the near future.

    App passwords can be used to work around this requirement.
