There is a batch utility to define files to CICS, so the answer is possibly no commands are required in CICS to define the file. Or, the file may be defined online in which there are data fields to enter in the transaction. It all depends upon your site and how things are done there.

In the link that Enrico posted, there is a manual called Resource Definition Guide. This manual tells you everything you need to know about online and batch definitions.

Hint: CICS definitions are stored in a special system file called the CSD. This file can be updated by the appropriate batch CICS utility.
