Note: You need to have Enterprise Manager 188.8.131.52 or higher.
In this demo I will show how using Enterprise Manager 12c I will create 3 new pluggable databases call TSTDB1, TSTDB2 and TSTDB3 all with one provisioning operation.

5. Set the database login credentials and click login.
6. Select "Create a new PDB" set the database host credentials and click next.
7. Set the PDB name, check the box to create multiple PDBs and set the number of PDBs to create. Give the name of the PDB local admin account you want to create and specify the password.
