Associating Products with Categories

You add products to catalogs by associating them with categories that belong to those catalogs. This is done using the Products tab in the Categories view under the Catalog Administration screen.

NOTE:  The Siebel eSales customer will only be able to view products that are both on the activated price list and in catalogs and categories associated with the same access groups with which that customer is associated. For more information, see Setting Up Price Lists.

For information on defining products, see Product Administration Guide.
