Choosing partition-related template settings

You create a tenant template by choosing partition-related (and general) settings.
To choose partition-related template settings:
1. Click Partitions. The tenant template's partitions appear.
From this page, you can:
*Choose to view the partitions in either of two different layouts: by area panels, which is the default and is shown above, or by columns in a grid view. To switch from one layout option to the other, click the View Grid or View Area icon in the upper-right corner of the Template Object Area Assignments panel.
*Filter the partitions by allocation state. Click Filter Partitions in the tenant menu bar, and select one or more of the filtering options. Then click Apply.
*Make changes to the template object area assignments. This is helpful because when you use the template to create a tenant in the future, any partition changes that you make to individual tenant objects from this page during the template creation are preserved for the individual objects in the new tenant.
For example, consider that you define TenantArea20 (as shown in the General details) as the default data area for the template, but you want one particular table named mtCustomer to be in TenantArea25. You can change the partition assignment for the mtCustomer table from the template default data area of TenantArea20 to TenantArea 25.
Select mtCustomer in the list of template object area assignments. The mtCustomer table properties appear in the Properties pane:
In the Properties pane, click the Search icon for the Area field; select TenantArea 25 in the Area Selection dialog and click OK.
When you use the template to create a tenant in the future, the tenant partition area you explicitly set for any object (such as the mtCustomer table in this example) in the template is preserved.
2. Click Save to maintain the settings. The tenant template is created.
