"schacHomeOrganization": "A person's home organization using the domain name of the organization.<br/>Example: ''.",
"eduPersonPrincipalName": "A scoped identifier for a person. It is represented in the form 'user@scope' where 'user' is a name-based identifier for the person and where the 'scope' portion MUST be the administrative domain of the identity system where the identifier was created and assigned. Note this idenitfier might be reassigend over time. Values of eduPersonPrincipalName are often, but not required to be, human-friendly, and may change as a result of various business processes. Possibilities of changes and reassignments make this identifier unsuitable for many purposes. As a result, eduPersonPrincipalName is NOT RECOMMENDED for use by applications that provide separation between low-level identification and more presentation-oriented data such as name and email address. Common identity protocols provide for a standardized and more stable identifier for such applications, and these protocol-specific identifiers should be used whenever possible; where using a protocol-specific identifier is not possible, the eduPersonUniqueId attribute may be an appropriate "neutral" form. Syntactically, ePPN looks like an email address but is not intended to be a person’s published email address, or to be used as an email address. Consumers must not assume this is a valid email address for the individual.<br/>Examples: '', ''.",

The values consist of a left and right component separated by an '@' sign, The left component is one of the values from the eduPersonAffiliation controlled vocabulary.This right-hand side syntax of eduPersonScopedAffiliation intentionally matches that used for the right-hand side values for eduPersonPrincipalName. The 'scope' portion MUST be the administrative domain to which the affiliation applies.<br/>Example: '', ''"
