Thanks Heinrich, AddToRequestIfNotExist was the one that fixed it. I didn't see it in the documentation myself because I was looking in the AuthBy xxxx sections, not the Client section.

Just to make it clear, Hugh, there wasn't a problem with the 0 value being added in place of the missing attribute. The problem was with the error message filling up my logs, _telling me_ that the 0 value was being added in place of the missing attribute.

Sorry for the slow reply, I've been out of the office and just now had a chance to test.

Hi, most of our NAS devices include Acct-Output-Gigawords in
their accounting requests, so we store it in our SQL database using
an AuthSelect parameter with the
%{IntegerValue:Acct-Output-Gigawords} syntax. But, we have a few
devices that do not include it. So every time the AuthSelect is run
in that case, we get this error in the log:

ERR: There is no value named  for attribute
Acct-Input-Gigawords. Using 0.

I would request that either this be reduced in severity from
error, or provide the opportunity to specify a default setting (e.g.
%{IntegerValue:Acct-Input-Gigawords|0} where 0 is the default in
case it's not present.) We did the former in our installation
because it was easy, but the latter would probably be more useful.

Or, if there's already a way to deal with this I'd love to hear
it. Thanks.

I would try:

  AddToRequestIfNotExist Acct-Input-Gigawords=0
