EntityAttributesMetadataFilter

The EntityAttributes MetadataFilter, identified by type="EntityAttributes", adds <mdattr:EntityAttributes> extension content to entities in order to drive software behavior based on them. Entity attributes are <saml:Attribute> elements that annotate entities in metadata. They can be used to populate user attributes at runtime, drive other metadata filters, or impact discovery interfaces.
