This would be a global dropdown to change the DB you're connected to.
I'd suggest moving this further up the issue list. I have a use case that is probably pretty common. Installing automatically in my docker instance with my site download for development purposes. I have already easily bypassed the login and can add the schema in by default but it would be nice if Directus could be simply pointed at a database the user had perms for so that I can bake this for all of my users.
tl;dr Directus has own database points to one or multiple sub-databases on install would be awesome.

How can you identify the DB on which the user logs on to the API?
Maybe like that ? curl -d "firstname.lastname@example.org&password=pass123&db=mydb" https://account-instance.directus.io/api/1.1/auth/request-token
Hey Ben, this would be great. Obviously to utilize one install to act as a CMS for many different sites living on a server. Would be nice to have even a crude implementation for now, ie. just something as simple as adding a 'domain' or 'site' select dropdown on the login page, letting us logout, and relogin to choose a different site, which just tells the backend which DB to use. Can't imagine that'd be hard. Maybe I could help with that implementation if you think it would suffice for now, as I'd love to use it personally.
