Attribute Definition Basics

All attribute definitions are configured in the IdP's resolver.xml file.

Basic Attributes

Each attribute definition supports the following basic XML attributes in their definition:

  • id - (required) used by the definition to determine its source, or input, attribute and by other definitions and data connectors to refer to this definition
  • sourceName - (optional) used to explicitly specify the name of the source, or input, attribute used by the definition

Source Attributes

Most attribute definitions transform other attributes. A definition will determine the name of its source attribute in the following way:

  1. If sourceName is present use an attribute whose name exactly matches the given source name
  2. Use an attribute whose name exactly matches the definitions id
  3. Use an attribute whose name exactly matches the last token of the definitions id split on / or :
