Identity Attributes Read our definition of Identity Attributes

Identity attributes are characteristics of an identity -- such as a name, department, location, login ID, employee number, e-mail address, etc. The term is commonly used in the context of directories, especially LDAP directories, where users are modeled as objects with a particular schema and characteristics of those users are modeled as attributes of those objects.
