Edit an Identity Attribute Category

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.

You can modify the name of an existing identity attribute category, or change the order in which categories display.


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

  2. In the Category List field, select the identity attribute category that you want to edit.

  3. In the Category Name field, enter the revised category name.

  4. (Optional) 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 Update.

  6. Click Save.

    Changes are effective immediately.
