Hi Oscar,

The non-deprecated page is at: The content there is a bit general.

These should get you started:

eduPerson object class:
- eduPersonPrincipalName (this value should be scoped to '' - see Shibboleth IdP documentation on how to configure scoped attributes. The values of eduPersonPrincipalName should be unique to a single person at a time, and preferrably not reassigned.)
- eduPersonAffiliation
- eduPersonScopedAffiliation

inetOrgPerson object class:
- mail
- displayName
- givenName
- sn

Some service providers will want different attributes - usually depending on the terms of a contract you might have with them. For example, some student systems will want student ID number.

Best Regards,

Our institution is in the process of registering as an InCommon participant. I was wondering if there is a page on your wiki that goes over which attributes need to be configured for release from the IdP. I’ve gone over most of the pages on this section and the page that talks about Identity Attributes Overview (, it looks like the information there is deprecated. Is there an up-to-date/recent page that we should be looking at for reference?

Thanks for your help,
