Q

LOCAL vs. GLOBAL partitioned table

What are the factors in which we decide whether to create a LOCAL or GLOBAL partitioned index on a partitioned table?
Basically, if the index is created on the same columns that the table is partitioned on, the index should be created as a LOCAL index. If the index is created on other columns, then it must be a GLOBAL partitioned index.
