Adding assets to a partition

Use the Assets tab on the Partitions view to add one or more assets to a partition. When you assign an asset to a partition, all the accounts associated with that asset are assigned to that partition, as well.

You can only assign an asset to one partition at a time. When you assign an asset to a partition, all accounts associated with that asset are automatically reassigned to that partition, as well. Then, any new accounts you add for that asset are automatically assigned to that partition.

You can reassign the asset to another partition either from the scope of the other partition or from an asset's General properties. For more information on partition assignment from an asset, see Assigning an asset to a partition.

When you associate an asset to a partition, all the accounts associated with that asset, are also added to the scope of that partition. For more information, see About partition profiles.
