Hello Akshay,
 Emilian here with Okta's Customer Support Team, thank you for reaching out to us. 
 Regarding the matter you've addressed, can you please provide us with a more detailed description of what you'd like to achieve? For instance, if you'd like to forward custom attributes to some application, you may do that by creating a custom SAML app and send whatever attributes the Service Provider supports through the SAML assertion (see link #1). If you would like to customize the values of the attributes that are being sent through an application, you may easily do that with mapping (see link #2). If you'd like to customize the user's attributes in the Okta dashboard, you may easily accomplish that by leveraging our REST API (see link #3).

 Please provide us with additional details so we may better answer your questions! Looking forward to hearing back from you on this matter.
