    Create item field value descriptions

    Field Description
    Item ID Enter the item ID.
    UOM Select the quantity unit of measure you want to associate with the item.
    Note: The unit of measure makes the item ID unique. For example, if you sell the same item with the same item ID from a node in the United States and a node in Canada, and the United States uses pounds for the unit of measure and Canada uses kilograms, the two different units of measure associated with the item ID makes two unique items in the system.
    Short Description Enter a brief description of the item.
    Master Catalog Select the master catalog you want this item to be part of. A master catalog is the exhaustive list of an organization's items. For more information about configuring master catalogs, see Defining master catalogs.
    Used as a Container for Packing Select to indicate this Item is a container. See Defining a product item's container attributes.
    Note: No Graphical User Interface is provided for creating or modifying Hazmat data. In order to associate Hazmat information to an item, the sort order of the Hazmat compliance should be defined as the Hazmat Class in the product, and item should be associated to this class. In other words, the sort order of the Hazmat compliance should be the Hazmat class for an item.
