MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  General Tablespaces

15.4.9 General Tablespaces

A shared InnoDB tablespace created using CREATE TABLESPACE syntax. General tablespaces can be created outside of the MySQL data directory, are capable of holding multiple tables, and support tables of all row formats.

Tables are added to a general tablespace using CREATE TABLE tbl_name ... TABLESPACE [=] tablespace_name or ALTER TABLE tbl_name TABLESPACE [=] tablespace_name syntax.

For more information, see Section 15.7.10, “InnoDB General Tablespaces”.
