Per system's design, Incident category is text field not a numeric field, which means even though you have maintained Incident Category in a numeric range(In this case, from 1 to 10) , since this is a text type field, hence only the two Incident Category you've input will be activated(In this case, 1 and 10).

Determinations for the data's to be shown in the add row is the following:

 - Product category usage code = 1. 
 - Catalogue usage:  Service request or service order.
 - Categories: service request or service order from type 1. 
 - Incidents: Type code 2. 
 - Service level objective = active.

This is standard behaviour. These are the restrictions for when adding a new service level and why some things might not been shown.


You need to maintain multiple steps with proper string comparisons accordingly.
