GeoFabrics

GeoFabrics enable you to create region-based subsets within your tenants. Each GeoFabric represents a group of collections, processes, and data that cannot be accessed from other GeoFabrics. You must log into the _system GeoFabric to create, modify, or delete GeoFabrics. Each GeoFabric has a unique URL that enables access to permissed users.

Refer to the glossary or Introducing Geofabrics for more details.
