    At the the simplest and the context of Project Online, multitenancy means, that you can provide services to multiple PWA instances using the same infrastructure, but also giving admin privileges to the tenant owners.

    Think of an apartment complex.

    1) Each Tenant is free to organize their individual apartment (i.e. have admin privileges)

    2) People from one apartment cannot access other apartment

    3) There is common services like plumbing that are managed by the apartment complex owners.
