This package naturally integrates well with Laravel packages, since it does not rely on you explicitly specifying database connections.

There are some exceptions, though. Telescope integration, for example, requires you to change the database connection in config/telescope.php to a non-default one, because the default connection is switched to the tenant connection. Some packages should use a central connection for data storage.

You may be thinking, why does the DB storage driver work with the default, central DB connection, but Telescope doesn't? It's because the DB storage driver intelligently uses the original default DB connection, if it has been changed.
