Is there any way to organize or group schemas inside an instance?
I'm using TOad and Oracle 11g.
I have a lot of shemas inside an instance... How to organize them?
What I see is a long list of schemas which could be difficult to manage if number of schemas grows up... For example, I'd like to group Schema_1, Schema_2 and Schema_3 in something like Group_1, so it could be seen more organized.
Sometimes a java or .net application uses 3 or 4 schemas... these schemas are in the same instance which has other schemas for other applications.
You have a lot of schemas inside a database, not an instance. And no, there is no direct grouping of schemas. What you can do is use a role, where a user is a member of a role, and then do whatever based on what the role has permissions to do.
This is a two parts answer.

2- In the described scenario where apparently there are several schema based "logical databases" running in the same Oracle instance why don't organize them by applying a proper naming convention where the prefix of the user account a.k.a. schema identifies the application, etc., etc.?
