You have created a new Supplier Catalog ABC (ABC represents the Supplier Catalog ID). It was imported and published successfully.
The products appear correctly when you use the catalog in a shopping cart or purchase order.
However, you cannot see the list of products under the Published Products tab in the Supplier Catalog master data.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Product Portfolio work center.
- Go to the Catalogs view.
- Show All Catalogs.
- Find ABC.
- Select Edit.
- Go to Published Products tab.
No data is displayed here.
The products will be displayed in the catalog based on the category. Therefore, the field "Catalog Category Description" must be filled while importing the catalog though it is not a mandatory field in the file. However, the products in the catalog will be displayed irrespective of the category while creating the Purchase Order, which explains why the catalog is displayed correctly from the Purchase order or Shopping Cart.
You can maintain the field "Catalog Category Description" in the import template and import the catalog again. Once it has been imported and published, you will see the products in the Published Products tab as expected.
