In this activity we are going to create new subcategories and forms.
- Using the admin kapp categories section we will create new categories as subcategories and add them to a top level category.
- We will also nest a new category inside of a subcategory to show how categories can have multiple levels of subcategories.
- We will then create new forms to populate the categories that where created in the first part of the exercise.
Part 1 create subcategories.
- From the Management Console select the Admin kapp from the left-hand side navigation bar.
- Make sure that you are currently on the Overview subsection.
- Click the "View Kapp" link on the right-hand side of the screen.
- Click the "Catalog" link located under the "Categories" section.
- Click the "+ Add Category" button on the right hand side of the screen.
- A menu will appear under the button. Give the category a name.
- Click the "Save" button. This will add a panel to the Categories section of the screen.
When a dragged category is positioned to become a subcategory a dotted line will appear as the image above shows. In the example above the Web category will become a subcategory of the Application category.
- Click and hold the newly created category and drag it under another category. You have made your first subcategory!
- Continue to add categories until you have multiple top level categories (in the image above Hardware and Software are top level categories).
- Add a subcategory to multiple top level categories, also have a top level category with multiple subcategories (above Hardware has multiple subcategories).
- Add a subcategory to one of the subcategories that exist (above the Phone category is a subcategory of the subcategory Application category).
