Assign Software Tokens to Multiple Users

Before a user can use a software token to authenticate, you must first assign the token to the user. You can assign up to three hardware or software tokens to a single user. Tokens that are managed in the Cloud Authentication Service do not count towards the three token limit.

You can run a command-line utility that restricts the number of tokens that can be assigned to a user. For instructions, see Restrict the Number of Active Tokens per User.
