Attributes provide the context that enables fine-grained policies.
Attribute values come from a multitude of sources. You can use the original values or modify the values. You can then use the final values in other attributes, Named conditions, or rules.
The system resolves an attribute only when its value is required as part of the decision request evaluation. For example, if a rule checks whether a customer’s device "Risk Score" is high, then the system only attempts to resolve the attribute corresponding to "Risk Score" if that rule is required.
