About session variable names

The name of a session variable consists of multiple hierarchical nodes separated by periods (.).
Do not use the word
.subsession
in a session variable. It may be interpreted as a subsession variable.
How APM constructs session variable names
It includes the string session, a type, the agent name or the string last, intermediate agent-specific info, node name (attr or result), attribute name
Session variables for Active Directory authentication and query
Access Policy Manager names session variables in the following manner:
  • session.ad.<username>.queryresult
    = query result (0 = failed, 1=passed)
  • session.ad.<username>.authresult
    = authentication result (0 = failed, 1=passed)
  • session.ad.<username>.attr.<attr_name>
    = the name of an attribute retrieved during the Active Directory query. Each retrieved attribute is converted to a separate session variable.
Attributes assigned to a user on the AAA server are specific to that server, and not to Access Policy Manager.
