How to Use and Create Attributes

  • Last updated on

There are two types of attributes: session attributes and user attributes. Both types can be used to personalize web forwards or to configure single sign-on authentication.

Session attributes

The following Session attributes are available:

  • ${session:username} – This session attribute contains the username used to log into the SSL VPN.
  • ${session:password} – This session attribute contains the password used to log into the SSL VPN.

User attributes

You can create user attributes that are filled in by the end user in the web portal or CudaLaunch. User attributes are used when different usernames or personalized variables are needed. To enter a user attribute in the web forward configuration, use the following format:

  • ${user:user_attribute_name}

  1. Go to the VPN > SSL VPN page and click the Resources tab.
  2. Under the Applications section, click Show Advanced Options. The User Attributes section appears.
