What capacity does radtest have to display custom attributes

I do remember reading something about that in the comments. Since I was seeing (it appeared) values being added in the debug, I thought that maybe custom attributes could be handed back, but wouldn’t be added automatically.

Alright. I’ll take the VSA route! Thanks!

Is radtest limited to only displaying officially defined attributes, or might I be doing something obviously ridiculous?
