Email is not received with forgotPassword authn API when MFA is enabled in Recovery flow


When forgotPassword authn API is triggered with username and factortype as email, Email is not received even though the API gives 200 OK response.
API response body obtained is :-
“factorResult”: “WAITING”,
“factorType”: “EMAIL”,
“recoveryType”: “PASSWORD”
System Log from Okta Dashboard says:- “Failure : Invalid User State”.

This issue is observed only after enabling MFA as required in the Recovery flow. Otherwise, it was working fine with the same piece of code.
