Default Velocity inlet from a part of the face

I am trying to define velocity inlet just at a part of the face. So imagine that I have 2 m radius circular domain, and I want to define velocity inlet just up to 1 m radius. Is it possible in Fluent?

I know I can do it in designmodeller but I wonder if I could do it directly in Fluent boundary conditions.

Thank you

You may use UDF with coordinate-dependent velocity value or profile

Best regards
