PowerSC MFA solution to create an allow/block list for users.

It would be useful to have a feature added to PowerSC MFA inorder to create a list of users to which the MFA should not be applicable. This is a requirement in our environment as we have multiple automation/service users which perform some kind of jobs based on ssh for e.g auto password management,script executions etc and the MFA prompt with ssh prevents this from running smoothly . If we could create a list of some users to which MFA is not applicable or on the login prompt if its somehow verfied based on user id if the next prompt should be a password or Policy Name this will solve the issue. On the MFA client ,once the login id is provided on ssh prompt,the MFA server should be contacted and if the user is found in the database should be prompted for CTC or Policy Name and if not then the normal login process without MFA should be proceeded.

    note that within IBM, the terms white/black list are no longer being used and are being replaced with allow/block list.
