User Attributes Overview

Follow

Introduction

In IDHub every entity requires a dynamic amount of attributes. The reason behind this is that we can use our Authorization Engine (and policy) based on attributes to influence given decisions.

These attributes are related to a user these can be:

  • TrustBuilder repository attributes: The value is in the TrustBuilder repository
  • Virtual Attributes: The value is fetched from an external repository (for example a CRM Database) and can be used during administration and  authentication.
  • Federated Attributes: Attributes are received during authentication  from the Authentication Mechanism (Identity Provider) and are cached in  the session for the duration of the session

Because it is a dynamic model we need to define the attributes that are available to use

Overview Page

The User Attributes page displays all the attributes that are available in Trustbuilder/IDHub.

They are grouped in categories (which can be collapsed).

To create a new attribute, press "Add New User Attribute" in the top right corner.
