Connection problem between n8n and Microsoft office authenticator

Hi community, when I activate the authenticator app in the account that connects office with n8n my workflows stop working and I don’t receive the automatic emails. When I deactivate the authenticator everything works again, sometimes I re-enter credentials.

I want to know if there is a way to keep the authenticator active and that n8n keeps sending information and nourishing itself with my Microsoft office credentials.

I would appreciate if you could help me with a solution for this error.



It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

Hey @Andrestonicomsa,

Welcome to the community :tada:

When you say Authenticator app do you mean when you enable MFA / 2FA for your Microsoft account? If you are using MFA with yoru account you may need to reconnect your credential again which should help.
