Partner Center Dashboard showing 0% in MFA status with SAML IdP

I'm using a third party IdP which provides MFA for secure logins.

Everything I've read so far says that it's needed to issue a claim authenticationmethodsreferences claim (with value multipleauthn) (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-center/partner-security-compliance)


At the SAML assertion that the IdP is issuing,  there is the following attribute being sent in the assertion:

<saml2:Attribute AttributeName="http://schemas.microsoft.com/claims/authnmethodsreferences">

Even though, the percentage remains 0%.  

Do you know what is the correct attribute should be sent ?

Unfortunately support will not help getting the right configuration for a 3rd party IdP - generally we say that you need to work with the 3rd party solution provider.
