What is the $atts parameter in shortcode_atts()?


The WordPress developers reference page for shortcode_atts() states:

$atts (array) (Required) User defined attributes in shortcode tag.

But I do not understand this definition.

For example, in this piece of the WP Frontend Profile plugin:

$atts = shortcode_atts(
     'role' => '',

As far as I understand, shortcode_atts() is used to create a map between the shortcode attributes and a PHP array.

But I don’t see what the purpose of the $atts parameter is.
