Master catalog

The master catalog is a hierarchy of items, organized into groups for ease of item maintenance. It is created by default when a catalog organization is defined.

Typically, the hierarchical structure of the master catalog is flat or has little depth. This structure facilitates item maintenance. The master catalog and the items within it are usually maintained by the catalog organization. However, in some cases, a subcatalog organization may be authorized to manage parts of the master catalog.

Note: Only one master catalog can exist for a catalog organization.
