Working with tenants : Adding a tenant domain

Adding a tenant domain

You can add one or more domains for a tenant by selecting from a list of predefined authentication systems that are configured for the database.
You can also add a domain to the database. For more information, see Managing domains in a multi-tenant database.
To add a domain:
1. On the management console menu, select Database Administration > Go to Database Administration.
The Database Administration page appears.
2. Filter or search for, and select the required database connection.
The database connection home page appears.
3. Under Storage Management, click View tenants.
4. Select the tenant for which you want to add a domain. The tenant details page appears.
5. Under Manage Tenant, click Edit tenant. The Edit tenant page appears.
6. Click Domains.
7. Click New in the tenant menu bar.
8. Provide the following information:
*Domain name — Type the domain name (required). Do not use spaces or special characters such as an asterisk (*), ampersand (&), or period ( . ) in this field. You can include the underscore (_).
*The domain name represents the logical name of a single authentication system (domain) that can be used to validate the authentication of a user account.
*Authentication system — From the drop-down list, specify the type of authentication system. (The available types exist in the database in the _sec-authentication-system table.)
*Access code — Type an access code for the domain.
*The access code you type is then encrypted and used to validate the identity and integrity of any CLIENT-PRINCIPAL issued by the authentication system represented by this domain.
*Confirm access code — Retype the access code.
*Description — Provide a description (optional).
*Comments — Provide comments (optional).
*Enabled — Select the check box to indicate that the domain is enabled (meaning that a user can log in).
*Auditing context — Provide the audit record context value.
*Runtime options — Provide a comma-delimited list of runtime options for this domain.
*System options — Provide the system option value.
9. Click Commit.
