Hi @Peter_Youssef , in general Request Attributes are helpful for data filtering.  A simple life example is a request attribute with the value of user login. If this request attribute is available inside every transaction you are able to filter transactions using user login and track user activity on the backend side (for example on the service view, or multidimensional view). You can also use request attribute to tag user sessions (browser perspective / user tag).

Thank you @Rapidez
