Mapping CI discovery categorization to product categorization
Product catalog alias mapping is used to map incoming CI categorizations from a discovery product to categorizations that you define in the Product Catalog Alias Mapping form. When a CI is saved, it contains the mappings defined in the Product Catalog Alias Mapping form.
For example, if you specify Desktop in the Categorization Tier 1 field in the Discovery Product Categorization area and Hardware in the Categorization Tier 1 field in the Mapped Product Categorization area, any incoming CI that is received as Desktop for tier 1 is saved as Hardware for tier 1.
