Set an item-specific order

You can set the order value on a per item basis.

About this task

When a variable set is used by more than one catalog item, you can define item-specific ordering to provide more flexibility in the layout. You do this using the catalog variable set record associated with the item.

Use the Order field in this catalog variable set record to set this order value on a per-item basis, overriding the default value defined in the variable set.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Service Catalog > Catalog Definition > Maintain Items.
  2. Open the catalog item to edit.
  3. Navigate to the Variable Sets related list.
  4. Click the reference icon for the variable set.

  5. Set the order value as required.
    As the catalog variable set order is specific to the link between the item and the variable set, it overrides the default order defined on the variable set itself.
