Add Identity Attribute Categories

Identity attribute categories group related identity attributes together. For example, Address can be an attribute category used to group together the fields for Street, City, State, and Country. Other examples of attribute categories include Current Job Information, Training History, and Employment History.

When you add identity attribute definitions, you assign each attribute to a category. The Edit User page displays attributes grouped within these categories. If you do not assign an attribute to a category, the default category is Attributes.


  1. In the Security Console, click Identity > Identity Attribute Definitions > Identity Attribute Categories.

  2. In the Category List field, enter the name of a new identity attribute category.

  3. Click Add.

  4. Continue adding categories until you are finished.

    Note: Use the Sort buttons (the up and down arrows) to order the list. The attribute categories display on the Add User and Edit User pages in this order.

  5. Click Save.
