Email one-time passcode (OTP) - Enable guest users without federation or registration

Nowadays, if you use Azure to run your business, there is an 80% chance of using Azure AD as the Identity and Access Management system.

The passcode is valid for 30 minutes and provides a valid session for the next 24 hours. If the passcode or session expires, there is no p
