The catalog administrator creates product catalogs, which contain product categories. The catalog administrator sets up access controls by assigning access groups to the catalog and to the categories.
The product administrator sets up user access to products, by assigning products to catalogs and categories. You can assign a product to more than one category, and thus more than one catalog. If the user belongs to a category's access group, a catalog's access group, or both, then the user can see the category in eSales Web pages. The user can also add the category's products to quotes.
When creating customizable products, it is important that users have access permission for the customizable product and all its components. You accomplish this by first assigning the customizable product and its components to the same product category or to categories that have the same access groups. Then you assign users who will configure the product to these access groups. If the users in the access groups differ across components, these users will not be able to configure the customizable product correctly.
