To plug in an existing or later PDB residing in a CDB as part of a Data Guard configuration into another CDB that is part of a different Data Guard configuration  where the current Primary CDB and the target CDB both have standby databases and allow you to use the original Standby database’s data files to update the destination CDB’s Standby.

This note describes a multitenant migration option for maintaining standby databases when the source database is a PDB. If your source database is a non-CDB, please see <Document 2273304.1>.
