Azure: How to configure MFA when Classic Portal is not available

My company provides CSP Azure subscription for our Customers. To make life more exciting Microsoft remove Classic Portal support from CSP. So we can use new and shiny ARM-based portal only.
When time come to configure Azure AD fun begins. Azure AD node is available in the new portal as ‘preview’ and miss some features from the old portal. Recently I had fun with license assigning, today I needed to assign MFA to accounts. Fun, fun, fun….
Anyway, as in the first case office.portal.com helped. This portal is available for CSP and have some missing features of the classic portal. For example to add MFA to a user:
1. start office.portal.com
2. goto Users->Active Users
3. Click ‘More’
4. Click “Setup Azure Multi-factor auth’ That will open MFA portal for you
5. Configure MFA for a user or users in bulk
