Does CAS support federated_attributes mapping when using JustInTime provisioning?

Good Morning,

I'm experimenting with Just In Time provisioning of user accounts that authenticate using our CAS system.   The JIT part is working, but I'm stuck mapping attributes coming from CAS to Canvas.   

This document talks about federated_attributes, but the section on CAS doesn't seem to include them.   Does this mean I cannot map attributes from CAS to Canvas, or is this a documentation oversight?

Authentication Providers - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation 

Also, related question, does anyone have an example of an API call that includes PUTting or POSTing federated_attributes?    There's no example in teh guide of what the format for federated_attributes should look like?   It's unclear if it's object notation, comma separated list, or what?

Thanks, Glen

 @glparker , due to the technical nature of this question I'm going to share it with the Canvas Developers‌ group in the Community. They are the ones that manage these types of functions in Canvas and should hopefully be able to help!

I would like to know the answer too. We're considering using Canvas at University of Wrocław. We'd like to use CAS for authenticating students. I've set up a local installation of Canvas, and while CAS login works fine, real name and e-mails don't get imported from CAS. I can't see any configuration option to do that.
