How Enterprise Vault determines whether to archive an item to a smart partition
Your environment can contain both standard vault store partitions and smart partitions. When any of the following conditions apply, Enterprise Vault archives an item to the open, standard vault store partition rather than any smart partition:
You have not enabled classification for the target archive.
You have chosen to run classification in test mode for the target archive.
The classification engine has not assigned any tags to the item.
The classification engine has assigned tags to the item, but none matches the tags that you have associated with an open smart partition.
When none of these conditions applies, Enterprise Vault archives the item to the appropriate smart partition. If there is a straightforward match between the tags that the classification engine has assigned to the item and those that you have associated with a single, open smart partition, Enterprise Vault archives the item to this partition. For example, if an item has been classified with the tag "PII", and you have associated the tag with a smart partition, then Enterprise Vault archives the item to this partition.
The situation is more complicated if you have multiple, open smart partitions, each of which is a potential recipient of the item. For example, suppose that an item has been classified with the tags "PII" and "Credit-Card" and that you have associated each tag with a different smart partition. When you configure the partitions, you can set a ranking for each tag that you associate with them. If the "PII" tag has a higher rank than the "Credit-Card" tag, Enterprise Vault archives the item to the partition that you have associated with the "PII" tag.
