Partition collocation

Partition collocation is a rule that discovers component instances that are on the same partition and are related to a product in the software catalog. If any of the discovered component instances has a confirmed, one-to-one, or auto-bundled relation to the product, the other instances are automatically bundled with the same product.


The assignment of the Server 2 component to Product 4 is simple, auto-bundled, or manually confirmed. The database component is assigned to Product 1. Both components are on the same partition.
