Research & Scholarship Attribute Bundle

IdPs are encouraged to release the R&S attribute bundle to all R&S SPs:

  • eduPersonPrincipalName
  • eduPersonTargetedID
  • mail
  • displayName
  • givenName
  • sn (surname)
  • eduPersonScopedAffiliation

Supporting the Research & Scholarship Category

An identity provider (IdP) supports the Research & Scholarship (R&S) Category if, for some subset of the IdP's user population, the IdP releases a minimal subset of the R&S attribute bundle to R&S SPs without administrative involvement, either automatically or subject to user consent.

Minimal Subset of the R&S Attribute Bundle

The following attributes constitute a minimal subset of the R&S attribute bundle:

  • eduPersonPrincipalName
  • mail
  • displayName OR (givenName AND sn)

For the purposes of access control, a non-reassigned persistent identifier MUST be released. If your deployment of eduPersonPrincipalName is non-reassigned, it will suffice. Otherwise you MUST release eduPersonTargetedID (which is non-reassigned by definition) in addition to eduPersonPrincipalName. In any case, release of both identifiers is RECOMMENDED.
