Allocating and managing resource quotas for tenants
Allocate and manage resource quotas available to individual Tenants, which are shared by Reservation items. You can associate multiple Reservation items to use the resources allocated to a tenant. You can view and manage tenants added to the domain set as the root domain for the Tenants tab.
Refer to the following sections for details:
