Step 5: Creating a super-tenant

Once you enable a database for multi-tenancy, create a super-tenant.
There are three varieties of tenants:
*Super-tenant — A tenant that does not have its own data but can access all shared tables and all multi-tenant data in the database.
*Regular tenant — A tenant that can access its own data, data for any other tenants in the same tenant group, or data in shared tables. (A shared table is one whose data is available to all tenants in the database.)
*Default tenant — A tenant that does not establish tenancy as part of authentication to the database. Because the user has not established tenancy, the default tenant can access only shared table data within the database or the default partition of a multi-tenant table. There is only one default tenant per multi-tenant database.
It is recommended that you set up at least one super-tenant to manage the database, and it is likely that you will want to set up at least one regular tenant as well.
