Subcatalogs

Subcatalogs define service management entitlements for BMC Digital Workplace Catalog users.

Catalog administrators create subcatalogs to distribute services, bundles, banners, service actions, and virtual marketplaces in the BMC Digital Workplace Catalog among users (internal service suppliers, internal service supplier administrators) who manage catalog items. 

Subcatalog scenario

In your company, different departments are responsible for creating and maintaining services. You might create a separate subcatalog for each of these services, and then assign internal supplier administrators and internal suppliers to this subcatalog.

For example, an entire catalog might be divided into the following subcatalogs:

 

Note

Catalog administrators can view and manage services that are created by other BMC Digital Workplace Catalog users.

 The following diagram depicts the concept of subcatalogs: 

Sub-catalogs concept

Catalog administrators manage subcatalogs from the subcatalogs page accessible from the Catalog > subcatalogs menu.

Each service, bundle, banner, service action, and virtual marketplace can be a part of a single subcatalog, and access is restricted to the internal suppliers and service supplier administrators who are associated with it, as shown on the following illustration:

All subcatalogs are available to all catalog administrators.  Internal suppliers and internal service suppliers can be assigned to only one subcatalog, and cannot view services associated with other subcatalogs.
