User_Role configuration in freeRadius Users file

I am using freeRadius for user authentication. I also want to assign roles
(like type of user) for each user configured in /usr/local/etc/raddb/users
file as like below. Then I will authorize the user in my radius client
application based on radius returned role.

dhandapani   Cleartext-Password := "dhanda"
       Service-Type = Framed-User,
       Framed-Protocol = PPP,
       Reply-Message = "Hello Dhandapani",
       User-Role = Admin

Is it possible. I have seen an attribute called 'Aruba-User-Role' but looks
like vendor specific. Is there any way to configure the role? Or do I need
to configure it somewhere else? Please suggest.
