We are trying to update the position of the datum feature using toolkit API but there is no API for that as it is possible in UI.

Here, the datum feature tag is not visible properly as shown in snaps. 

It's possible to update the position of that datum feature tag in UI just by dragging it but I want to change its position by using APIs only.

But I did not find any API which will update the position of that datum feature symbol.

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?

More robust mirror functionality will save time and money
