[slurm-users] Problem with assigning user to partition

For both "add user" and "modify user", I see Partitions=
So, how did you conclude that Partitions is only available with "add user"?

[root at rocks7 ~]# sacctmgr remove user where name=test2
 Deleting users...
  test2
Would you like to commit changes? (You have 30 seconds to decide)
(N/y): y
[root at rocks7 ~]# sacctmgr add user test2 Account=diamond Partitions=MONTHLY1
 Adding User(s)
  test2
 Associations =
  U = test2     A = diamond    C = jupiter    P = monthly1
 Non Default Settings

(N/y): y
[root at rocks7 ~]# sacctmgr list association
format=account,user,partition,association
   Account       User  Partition     Assocs
---------- ---------- ---------- ----------
      root
      root       root
   diamond
   diamond      test2   monthly1
     local
     local      hamid
     local    mahmood
     local       test

Is that correct?

Regards,
Mahmood
