Configuring a Partition Point

Configuring a Partition Point

You can perform the following tasks when you edit or add a partition point:
  • Specify the partition type at the partition point.
  • Add and delete partitions.
  • Enter a description for each partition.
The following image shows the configuration options that you can use to edit partition points:
In the Edit Partition Point dialog box, you can edit or add a partition point. You can specify a partition type at the partition point, add and delete partitions, and enter the description of each partition.
  1. Selected partition point
  2. Add a partition
  3. Delete a partition
  4. Select a partition
  5. Enter the partition description
  6. Specify the partition type.
The following table describes the configuration options for partition points:
Partition Options
Description
Select Partition Type
Changes the partition type.
Partition Names
Selects individual partitions from this dialog box to configure.
Add a Partition
Adds a partition. You can add up to 64 partitions at any partition point. The number of partitions must be consistent across the pipeline. Therefore, if you define three partitions at one partition point, the Workflow Manager defines three partitions at all partition points in the pipeline.
Delete a Partition
Deletes the selected partition. Each partition point must contain at least one partition.
Description
Enter an optional description for the current partition.
You can enter a description for each partition you create. To enter a description, select the partition in the Edit Partition Point dialog box, and then enter the description in the Description field.
