User Attributes

Each user within JumpCloud can be decorated with a series of attributes to create a profile for use in the directory, which can then be consumed by resource endpoints via various protocols.  

Attributes come in two flavors: standard user attributes, and custom user attributes.  This article describes standard user attributes, as well as how they map to LDAP.
