Catalog content from the starter kit

Your BMC Digital Workplace installation includes a starter kit that contains common service request definitions (SRDs) and catalog sections.  Administrators and employees of any company can access these items, because the SRDs are imported to the Global company. The Global company is a special company that provides default SRDs and other settings to all companies. SRDs are online by default. 

The starter kit is imported only during a fresh installation and not during an upgrade.

Sections in the catalog provided by the starter kit

Before users start to use the SRDs from the starter kit

The default values for the SRDs might not be appropriate for your organization. A Service Request Manager should review the SRDs, and modify, disable, or set entitlements for SRDs as appropriate to your organization. The Request Catalog Manager for all these SRDs is set to the sample data user "Allen Allbrook" in the company "Calbro Services". From BMC Service Request Management, an administrator or Service Request Manager can update the SRDs with the person who is responsible for managing the SRDs.

The following SRDs have additional requirements, such as Asset entries in the Product Catalog. An administrator can provide the necessary requirements, a Service Request Manager can modify the SRD to better meet your organization's needs, or a Service Request Manager can take the SRD offline, so that it is not available.
