To perform an import of a product hierarchy version, kindly follow the below steps:

  1. Ensure that the subnodes to be added to the hierarchy are maintained in the Product SSCUI "Configure Nodes for Product Hierarchies" - 103298
  2. In "Manage Product Hierarchies" application, create a draft hierarchy by clicking "+" (Add button).
  3. Maintain the required Hierarchy ID, Description and Validity period and click OK.
  4. Once the new draft version is loaded in the search list, click on the table entry to view the details of the selected hierarchy version.
  5. Click on "Edit" button on the footer of the page.
  6. Import/Export button would be available above the tree display of the hierarchy version.
    • Use Export/Import to export the draft hierarchy version as a spreadsheet. Template would be prefilled with Hierarchy ID, its validity Period and root node.
    • You need to maintain only 3 columns - Type, ID, and Parent ID to form the Hierarchy
      • Types
        • Node: Product Hierarchy Node -- To indicate that ID column entry is a sub node and are maintained in the SSCUI.
        • Product  - To indicate that ID column entry is a Product
      • ID -- Either the sub node or a Product
      • Parent ID -- To which Subnode should the ID be added as a child node/sub node. Entries here can be either the Root or Nodes maintained in SSCUI only.
    • Note: A Product should not be added in the column Parent ID.
  7. Once the Spread sheet is maintained, again use the Export/Import button in edit mode to Import/upload the maintained spreadsheet to get the draft updated with hierarchy version in the application.
  8. Click "Save".
  9. To activate the hierarchy, click "Activate"
