Modify a RADIUS Attribute Definition in a Dictionary

Modify a RADIUS attribute in a RADIUS dictionary when you change the name or number of a custom RADIUS attribute in the Security Console. On each RSA RADIUS server, you must modify the attribute in each dictionary file which is associated with the client device. You must also modify the dictionary file on the client device to include the changes to the attribute.

Before you begin

You must be a Super Admin.


  1. Log on to the Operations Console.

  2. Click Deployment Configuration > RADIUS Servers.

  3. Select the RADIUS server, and select Manage Server Files from the context menu.

  4. Click the Dictionary Files tab to see the RADIUS dictionary files.

  5. Find the dictionary file that you want to edit.

  6. Select Edit from the context menu.

  7. Make the appropriate change to the file.

    RADIUS logs all attributes and attribute values. To prevent an attribute and its value from being logged, enter the secret tag at the end of the attribute string. For example:

    ATTRIBUTE Tunnel-Password 23 string secret

    Note: Verify that the attribute does not conflict with an existing attribute in the dictionary. If the dictionary contains an attribute that uses the same name or number that you want to add, comment out the conflicting attribute.

  8. Click Save & Restart RADIUS Server for the changes to take effect.
