It is possible to rename partitions and subpartitions of both tables and indexes. One reason for renaming a partition might be to assign a meaningful name, as opposed to a default system name that was assigned to the partition in another maintenance operation.
All partitioning methods support the FOR(value) method to identify a partition. You can use this method to rename a system-generated partition name into a more meaningful name. This is particularly useful in interval or interval-* partitioned tables.
You can independently rename partitions and subpartitions for reference-partitioned master and child tables. The rename operation on the master table is not cascaded to descendant tables.
