   $partition-key as cts:reference,
   $lower-bound-included as xs:boolean
) as element(db:assignment-policy)


This function returns an element that represents the range assignment policy. Use the admin:database-set-assignment-policy function to set the assignment policy.

$partition-key This parameter specifies the cts reference that will be used as the partition key. It can be an element range index, an attribute range index, a field range index or a path range index. The range index can have any data type except for geospatial types.
$lower-bound-included If this paramenter is fn:true(), ranges on all forests in the database have closed lower bounds and open upper bound; if it is fn:false(), ranges on all forests in the database have open lower bounds and closed upper bounds.

For example, if the partition range is 2011-01-02 (lower) to 2011-01-02 (upper) and lower-bound-include is set to fn:false(), documents with partition key value of 2011-01-02 will not be included in the partition, but documents with a partition key value of 2011-01-03 and 2011-01-02 will be included.
