* _Mail attribute_
** {{mail}}
* _Person name attributes_
** {{displayName}}
** {{givenName}}
** {{sn}} (surname)

{note:title=An Important Consequence of Releasing the Essential Attribute Bundle}
If your deployment of {{eduPersonPrincipalName}} is non-reassigned, and your IdP releases the essential attribute bundle to all SPs, then your IdP supports the [Research & Scholarship Category|Research and Scholarship Category] as a side effect, without further configuration.
