PartitionScheme Class

The PartitionScheme object provides programmatic access to partition schemes.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)

[EvaluationModeAttribute(AutomatedPolicyEvaluationMode::CheckOnSchedule)]
[PhysicalFacetAttribute]
public ref class PartitionScheme sealed : public ScriptNameObjectBase, 
	ISfcSupportsDesignMode, IDroppable, IAlterable, ICreatable, IScriptable

The PartitionScheme type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodPartitionScheme()Initializes a new instance of the PartitionScheme class.
Public methodPartitionScheme(Database, String)Initializes a new instance of the PartitionScheme class, and sets the name of the partition scheme and the database to which it belongs.

  NameDescription
Public propertyEventsGets the events associated with the partition function.
Public propertyExtendedPropertiesRepresents a collection of ExtendedProperty objects. Each ExtendedProperty object represents an extended property defined on the PartitionScheme object.
Public propertyFileGroupsRepresents a collection of FileGroup objects. Each FileGroup object represents a filegroup defined on the database.
Public propertyIDGets the zero-based ordinal of the PartitionScheme object, which specifies its position within the collection.
Public propertyNameGets or sets a String which contains the name of the PartitionScheme. (Overrides NamedSmoObject::Name.)
Public propertyNextUsedFileGroupGets or sets the name of the filegroup that has NEXT USED status.
Public propertyParentGets or sets the Database object that is the parent of the PartitionScheme object.
Public propertyPartitionFunctionGets or sets the name of the partition function used in this partition scheme.
Public propertyPropertiesGets a collection of Property objects that represent the object properties. (Inherited from SqlSmoObject.)
Public propertyStateGets the state of the referenced object. (Inherited from SmoObjectBase.)
Public propertyUrnGets the Uniform Resource Name (URN) address value that uniquely identifies the object. (Inherited from SqlSmoObject.)
Public propertyUserDataGets or sets user-defined data associated with the referenced object. (Inherited from SmoObjectBase.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIAlienObject::ResolveGets the instance that contains the information about the object from the Unified Resource Name (URN) of the object. (Inherited from SqlSmoObject.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIAlienObject::SetObjectStateSets the object state to the specified SfcObjectState value. (Inherited from SqlSmoObject.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIAlienObject::SetPropertyValueSets the property value. (Inherited from SqlSmoObject.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodISfcPropertyProvider::GetPropertySetGets the interface reference to the set of properties of this object. (Inherited from SqlSmoObject.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate propertyISfcSupportsDesignMode::IsDesignModeGets a Boolean value that indicates whether the object supports design mode. Identified for informational purposes only. Not supported. Future compatibility is not guaranteed.

Partition schemes define the physical structure that is used to partition tables and indexes across multiple file groups.

To get PartitionScheme object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.

To set PartitionScheme object properties, users must use the ALTER statement to alter permission on the database or ALTER ANY DATASPACE for permissions on the server or be a member of the db_owner or db_ddladmin fixed database roles or sysadmin fixed server role.

To create or drop a partition scheme, users must use ALTER for permission on the database or ALTER ANY DATASPACE for permission on the server or be a member of the db_owner or db_ddladmin fixed database roles or a member of sysadmin fixed server role.
