An enumerated type that defines all possible attribute value access types, one of:

  • READ_ONLY: the attribute value can be read and displayed, but not modified.
  • READ_WRITE: the attribute value can be read, displayed, and modified.

Attribute access is additive to security permissions. For example, if the security policy for the client user denies read access to a particular attribute, then the attribute access cannot override that security setting. In fact, the API would never return the attribute to the client.
