I know. I was saying the update {} style was adopted for most maps in v3.0.x.

Ah. No, that's not what the Cache module does. It uses an in memory tree to cache sets of attributes against a configurable key.

It's just a bunch of inserts, but i'm not sure how you're hoping to gather info from the *response* of the RSA server. I'd doubt
it would include any useful information.

If you're looking to populate the user db with passcodes then that's fine, just add some logic in post-proxy to detect when it's
a passcode request (as opposed to pin code), and insert rows into radcheck...
