  Because it's not an attribute that can go into a RADIUS packet.

  And what Fortigate documentation said to send it Group-Name?  The system receiving the attribute has to know what to do with the attribute.

  You can't just invent an attribute, send it to a system, and expect the system to do something with it.

  Read the Fortigate documentation to see what attributes it supports.  Then, configure FreeRADIUS to send those attributes.

  And don't send Group-Name.  Fortigate doesn't support it.
