there is no built in mechanism available for that. The attribute values need to go into the mechanism provided by RTC.

However, if you want to also store this kind of data in an external system, you could create a participant for that. See this post on how to get started. It links back to workshops too.

The participant would basically have to connect to the external system and use whatever means to store data e.g. the attribute value as a string in the other system. It would be best to do that asynchronously, because the performance f your extension can impact the UI performance.
