  • Verify that one or more catalog items are published. See Configure a Catalog Item.


  1. Select Administration > Catalog Management > Services.
  2. Select the service to which you are adding catalog items and click Manage Catalog Items.
  3. Click the Catalog Items icon (Add).
    1. Select the catalog items to include in this service.

      The Select Catalog Items dialog box displays only the items that are not already associated with a service.

    2. Click Add.
  4. Click Close.
