    Title:

    For Functional Area Catalog (Procurement, Inventory), customer requires category hierarchy. However "Enable hierarchy for catalog" flag is greyed out and not allowed to be checked.

    Customer requires category hierarchy to be built for Functional Area Catalog (Procurement, Inventory). However "Enable hierarchy for catalog" flag is unchecked by default. Customer needs a hierarchy for these catalogs. How to select this flag? Any way we can select the flag and build category hierarchy?
    I observe that "Functional Area Parameters and Rules" are greyed out and selected with default values.
    Customer needs hierarchy badly. Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Best regards

      Hi ,

      I think hierarchy is not allowed in Functional Area Catalogs . Would you please verify if any recent updates are there?

       

      Thanks

      The owning teams for the functional areas specify the rules that are used to control the configuration and behavior of the catalog assigned to their functional area. In most cases the functional areas such a purchasing and inventory do not allow hierarchy, that is why the enable hierarchy flag is disabled since the seeded functional area rule overrides the value in the user interface. In the case of purchasing, the self service catalogs are constructed using the categories in the purchasing functional area catalog to define the hierarchy, these catalogs are modeled in a separate data model within Purchasing.

      The owners of the functional area would have to make changes in their integration to use catalogs with hierarchies.
