POST /api/login/pendingtasks

Used if a custom user workflow is in use in the platform that requires custom tasks; for example, entering a two-factor verification code. In this scenario, this operation allows a user to log in, guiding the user through any pending tasks that are needed, including custom tasks, such as 2FA verification, and any standard tasks, such as accepting a legal agreement or changing the password.

With the platform's default workflow, the POST /api/login operation initiates the login process. If a custom workflow is in effect with custom pending tasks, the POST /api/login/pendingtasks operation manages the custom task.

This operation links the user request into a workflow action in a custom user workflow controlling the custom login tasks. Multiple custom login tasks can be introduced, as long as the workflow is updated to reflect each task. This provides an API layer that links into the workflow action to resolve login pending tasks.

This operation links into the @ResolveLoginPendingTask workflow initial action.

Authorization Roles/Permissions: To complete this operation successfully, a user must be registered on the platform or be in process of registering.
