Instances of attribute allowed
|Attribute must appear only once in the object.|
|Attribute may appear multiple times in the object. For example, you may wish to include more than one admin-c attribute.|
Attribute search status
|Primary keys distinguish an object from all other objects in the database. To update a primary key, you must delete the entire object and them create a new object with the updated information.|
|Attribute can be queried in the database to return the object. Please note, however, that a lookup key does not uniquely identify an object.|
|Attribute can be used when performing an inverse query using the -i flag. For example, the query
-i mntner <MNTNER-NAME>
will return all objects with the specified maintainer in the mnt-by attribute.
