Question:

Can I use two different subdomains for tenants of the same portal? if so, how?

Environment:

Portal 4.2

Answer:

It is possible to do so. Please try the following suggestions. 
Yes, this should be possible IF the second tenant for example, https://dev.test.com is created as an external tenant.

1. First of all,  create a new file for example, developer1.json with the following content:
Below is an example of the JSON file to use to create this tenant { 
"adminEmail": "YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS@HOSTNAME.COM", 
"auditLogLevel": "DEBUG", 
"noReplyEmail": "noreply@some.email.server", 
"performanceLogLevel": "DEBUG", 
"portalLogLevel": "DEBUG", 
"portalName": "CA Technologies Developer Network", 
"tenantType": "ON-PREM", 
"termOfUse": "EULA", 
"multiclusterEnabled": true, 
"tenantId": "dev", 
"subdomain":"test.com", 
"cmsAuthorHost": "", 
"hybridState": 1 

2. [root@apim util]# ./create-tenant.sh -d developer1.json 
3. Add “dev.test.com” in /etc/hosts (both portal and local machine) 
4. once created and provided that the proper DNS, the newly created tenant can be reached at https://dev.test.com
