Grant Catalog Access Control


A catalog contains published catalog items in the Service Manager Service Portal for consumer fulfillment.

The Organization Administrator uses the Access Control tab of the Catalogs application to grant group access to published catalog items in a catalog. When the Organization Administrator specifies group access to a catalog, all members of the group have access to all catalog items in the catalog.

Tip The Organization Administrator can control access to individual catalog items in a catalog. Refer to Catalog Item Access Control for details.

To have all catalog items in a catalog visible to all authenticated users of a consumer organization, make sure all the organization's groups appear in the Access Control view for the catalog.
