Assign RADIUS User Attributes to Users

You can assign standard or custom RADIUS attributes to a user. For example, you might assign the Callback-Number attribute to a user with the value as the user's individual office telephone number. RSA Authentication Manager automatically assigns the attribute with its value to user aliases associated with the user object.

If you assign a user to a RADIUS attribute both in a RADIUS profile and as a RADIUS user attribute, the RADIUS server applies the value that you specify in the RADIUS user attribute definition.

Before you begin

Enable RADIUS user attributes. For more information, see Enable or Disable RADIUS User Attributes.


  1. In the Security Console, click Identity > Users > Manage Existing.

  2. Click the user to which you want to assign an attribute.

  3. From the context menu, click Authentication Settings.

  4. In RADIUS User Attributes, do one of the following:

    • If you want to add an attribute, select the attribute that you want to assign to the user, enter the value for the attribute in the Value field, and click Add.

    • If you want to remove an attribute, select the attribute from the list, and click Remove.

    • If you want to update an attribute, select the attribute from the list, enter the value in the field, and click Update.

    A RADIUS user attribute can be mapped to an identity source attribute. For more information, see Map a RADIUS User Attribute Definition to an Identity Source Attribute.

  5. Click Save.
