Master catalog

The master catalog is the central location to manage your store merchandise. Everything that you need in your store is contained within the master catalog. It is the single catalog that contains all products, items, relationships, and standard prices for everything that is for sale in your store.

Every store in the HCL Commerce system must have a master catalog. You can share the master catalog across stores and define as many stores as needed.

In addition to creating a master catalog for your catalog management, you might also choose to create one or more sales catalogs for display purposes. A sales catalog can contain the same entries as the master catalog, but the sales catalog has a flexible structure for customer display purposes. You can have as many sales catalogs as you want.

Use the Management Center Catalogs tool to view and manage your master catalog.
