Configuring the Product Catalog
To set up the Product Catalog, complete the following procedures. For more information about Product Catalog concepts, see BMC Atrium Product Catalog overview.
- Create Product Catalog entries.
To normalize CIs, you must have product entries in the Product Catalog. Import or create these products as needed.
- (optional ) Configure the categorizations to meet your needs.
- Approve products, versions, and patches for your organization.
By default, the Normalization Engine does not update or allow the creation of unapproved CIs, and all products in the Product Catalog are unapproved by default. If you allow normalization of unapproved CIs, the Normalization Engine sets the NormalizationStatus attribute for such CIs to Normalized Not Approved.
