I am trying to manage the synchronization options in SharePoint Farm using Powershell.

I would like to change the "Use SharePoint Profile Synchronization" to "Enable External Identity Manager" by code to automate the process of configuration of user permissions and their options.


The way it is done manually is: SharePoint Administration -> Manage Service Applications -> User Profile Service Application -> Configure Synchronization Settings -> Synchronization Options

Is there any way of accessing and editing this option by use of Powershell? I've already tried to use commands like Set-SPProfileServiceApplication and Set-SPRequestManagementSettings but I cannot find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
