The section explains how to set the anchor attribute for a CS object type.
The anchor attribute is the attribute which uniquely defines an object type. Operations which update and/or change object information need to have an anchor set so that the object being modified can be located in FIM and then updated.To do this, first create the definition attribute (i.e. username) then map it to a function/parameter. Then set this function/parameter to be a defining parameter.Prerequisites to set an anchor attribute
