No, it only has to be requested for the jobs that want to use that
resource.  Otherwise, it'll be assigned the default value of 'FALSE'.

If you look at the example I showed, it has 'requestable' set to
'FORCED' and 'default' set to 'FALSE'.  So, if someone submits a job and
doesn't request the complex, then the value is set to 'FALSE' and the
jobs won't be assigned to any queues that have that complex associated
with them.   If someone does request the resource (with '-l stat' in my
example), then the job will only run on the queues that are associated
with that resource.
