If you're using a listener TCP port other than 1521, you will also need to set the dispatchers and local_listener initialization parameters, just like you would in a non-CDB system. Please see the documentation for further information.
Tablespaces are local to a PDB, so the Tablespaces entry is not available at the root container. To view and manage tablespaces or datafiles on a PDB, go to the EM Express configured on that PDB.
Yes, Common Users can be created and managed from the root container.At the PDB container, you can only create and manage local users.
At the PDB container, only the Activity and Monitored SQL tabs are visible because these are the only tabs that display PDB-specific data.
At the root container, all tabs are available in the Performance Hub.
Yes, at the root container, you can see the Average Active Sessions breakdown by container using the Home Page and the Performance Hub (Summary tab or Activity tab).
This data is taken from ASH, not metrics, so you might see a discrepancy when comparing average active sessions per container against a different breakdown.
Although PDB$SEED is just a seed database, when queries are issued against CDB_* views, the server internally switches to all containers, including PDB$SEED, to retrieve data. If there are frequent queries against CDB_* views, this could result in activity captured against PDB$SEED.
No, EM Express does not provide full CDB management capabilities in DB 188.8.131.52.0.
You can get this information from the Status region in the home page. If you are at the root container, the type will show "CDB (# of PDBs)", and if you are at the PDB, the region will include the Container Name to which you're connected.
In addition, the blue panel at the top of the page will have an icon on the top left that indicates if the database is a CDB. The database name will be displayed after the icon:
If you're connected to a PDB, the container name will be displayed after the database name:
