    A JHipster blueprint for creating multitenant applications


    This is a JHipster blueprint for creating multitenant applications. The blueprint will:

    • Generate a JHipster application
    • Generate a Tenant entity
    • Make the User, and any other entities, tenant aware

    Table of contents


    As this is a JHipster blueprint, we expect you have JHipster and its related tools already installed:


    With NPM

    To install this blueprint:

    npm install -g generator-jhipster-multitenancy

    To update this blueprint:

    npm update -g generator-jhipster-multitenancy

    With Yarn

    To install this blueprint:

    yarn global add generator-jhipster-multitenancy

    To update this blueprint:

    yarn global upgrade generator-jhipster-multitenancy


    Generate Multitenant Application

    To generate your JHipster Multitenant application using the blueprint, run the below command

    jhipster --blueprints multitenancy

    Making an entity tenant aware

    Once the blueprint has generated your application, a tenant entity has been created. All entitites created now can be made tenant aware. Create a new entity using the standard JHipster command.

    jhipster entity Book

    Upon generation, you will then be asked if you want to make your entity tenant aware.

    Do you want to make Book tenant aware? (Y/n)

    Running A Development Version

    During development of blueprint, please note the below steps. They are very important.

    1. Link your blueprint globally

    Note: If you do not want to link the blueprint(step 3) to each project being created, use NPM instead of Yarn as yeoman doesn't seem to fetch globally linked Yarn modules. On the other hand, this means you have to use NPM in all the below steps as well.

    cd multitenancy
    npm link
    1. Link a development version of JHipster to your blueprint (optional: required only if you want to use a non-released JHipster version, like the master branch or your own custom fork)

    You could also use Yarn for this if you prefer

    cd generator-jhipster
    npm link
    cd multitenancy
    npm link generator-jhipster
    1. Create a new folder for the app to be generated and link JHipster and your blueprint there
    mkdir my-app && cd my-app
    npm link generator-jhipster-multitenancy
    npm link generator-jhipster (Optional: Needed only if you are using a non-released JHipster version)
    jhipster -d --blueprints multitenancy
