When you activate an alignment, Territory Management creates the actual assignment rules for the territories. (Assignment rules are not created when the alignment is run.) These are the rules that are used by Assignment Manager to assign positions to the account, contact, and asset records.
You can activate alignments only where all territories have the same primary hierarchy as the alignment hierarchy. Territories can be associated with multiple territory hierarchies so you can run alignments to simulate results, but the application does not allow to activate alignments for non-primary hierarchies. The application requires that you use only one primary hierarchy for alignment activation for a given group of Territories. The primary hierarchy that you defined for each territory is used to validate that all territories in the alignment have the same primary hierarchy as the alignment hierarchy. The alignment can be activated only if they are the same.
Table 8 describes two slightly different activation behaviors, depending on whether the activation date is in the future or the past.
