Database groups contain sets of databases within an organization. Database groups enable grouping related databases and provide efficient use of resources needed to provision and operate databases.

Verify that at least one resource bundle is allocated to the database group's organization. See Create a Resource Bundle if no resource bundle is available.

You must be logged in as an organization administrator or have permissions to create or modify database groups.
