Remove reference to creating a "back-mapping" to remove links

    Details

      Description

      Since 4.5.x, we've included the following statement in the docs:
      (https://ea.forgerock.com/docs/idm/integrators-guide/index.html#ftn.d0e25039)
      > When a target object is deleted, the link from the target to the corresponding source object is not deleted automatically. This allows IDM to detect and report items that might have been removed without permission or might need review. If you need to remove the corresponding link when a target object is deleted, define a back-mapping so that the deleted object can be identified as a source object, and the link can be removed.

      This "back-mapping" is not necessary. The way to remove links to target objects that no longer exist is to change the default action for that situation.

      The default action is EXCEPTION. Change it to UNLINK to remove the link or to DELETE to remove the target object and the link.

      This needs to be fixed in the docs from 4.5.x onwards.
