Mattermost iOS app not intended to support GitLab SSO's 2FA feature

On the Mattermost iOS client of you leave the app and come back it starts the sign in flow all over again no matter how you return the app. This makes signing in with a Gitlab account with 2 factor authentication enabled impossible as by the time you have clicked the “login with Gitlab” button, entered your credentials, and gotten to the 2FA code entry screen whatever 2FA code you copied has expired.

Hi @ajoy39, appreciate the feedback,

MFA with GitLab SSO isn’t supported because it’s out of scope for our workflows and test infrastructure. It may “just work” in cases where it’s identical to the GitLab SSO setup tested, but we want to be transparent that it’s not part of the Mattermost feature set.
