    How to create category automatically and assign item based on item attributes.
    analyze the item attribute then create category and assign item to it.

    Hi All,

    We have a requirement where a customer needs to create leaf level category and assign item to it though item EFF attribute information.


    On item 

    Item  --- A


    User selects below attributes for Catalog and Leaf Level Category.

    Catalog Name -----> Power Catalog 

    Leaf Level Category ---> Bucket 


    If Category exists the item will get assigned ( This is achievable ) and

    if not exist then system should create it and assign the item. ------> seeking help on this part.


    Please let me know if this is possible within PDH.

      Hi Shivam, 


      Have you tried using Manage Item Rule Sets in PIM.

        Hey Praveen,

        Through Item rules we are only able to assign items to existing category. We can not create a new one from there.


        What we are looking is a way by which we can create the category and assign item to it.

      PDH rules only let you assign items to existing categories based on the time you wrote the rule, not to a catalog that is dynamically created within the rule.
