SAML step-up auth


I have a SAML application and basic AUTH using policies in OKTA works well. I was able to authenticate via SAML by configuring rules in OKTA App and was successfully pass flow with MFA and just password.

I need to have a way for step up auth via SAML by using requiredAuthContext. I see that this can be achieved using OIDC and acr_values, but is there an ability to realise this by passing requiredAuthContext in request to IdP?

Also I saw a comment that on the moment year 2017 there were no option to understand in SAML response about method that was used for Auth (was it password or MFA). Was that realised after that moment or maybe there are some plans to extend functionality with SAML integrations?

Thanks in advance.
