Specifies the person's primary relationship to the institution in broad categories such as student, faculty, staff, alum, etc. (See controlled vocabulary).
In SWITCHaai, the value employee MUST NOT be used. Use staff instead.
Appropriate if the person carries at least one of the defined eduPersonAffiliations. The choices of values are the same as for that attribute.
Think of this as the affiliation one might put on the name tag if this person were to attend a general institutional social gathering. Note that the single-valued eduPersonPrimaryAffiliation attribute assigns each person in the directory into one and only one category of affiliation. There are application scenarios where this would be useful.
See eduPersonAffiliation for further details.
