No, all queues, which have the complex attached to them have the forced 
attribute. You
could create a new complex "forced", add the resource which is forced, 
and attach that
complex to the queues, which require the resource request. This will 
result in only jobs
running in those queues, which request the attribute.

I hope it helps.

Kind Regards,
