CBIdentityMBS class

Function: A CBIdentity object is used for accessing the attributes of an identity stored in an identity authority.
You can use an identity object for finding identities, and storing them in an access control list (ACL). If you need to edit these attributes, take advantage of the CSIdentity class in Core Services.

You can obtain a CBIdentity object from one of the following class factory methods: identityWithName, identityWithUUIDString, identityWithPersistentReference, or identityWithCSIdentity.

There are two subclasses of CBIdentity: CBGroupIdentity and CBUserIdentity. If you are working specifically with a group identity, use CBGroupIdentityMBS. Similarly, if you are working with a user identity, use CBUserIdentityMBS.
