The Product Category defines unique groupings of products. Product categories can be used in building price lists.

To the database table (M_Product_Category) of this entity.



Property Column Constraints Type Description
id* M_Product_Category_ID Mandatory
Max Length: 32
java.lang.String Identifies the category which this product belongs to. Product categories are used for pricing.
client AD_Client_ID Mandatory
ADClient A Client is a company or a legal entity. You cannot share data between Clients.
organization AD_Org_ID Mandatory
Organization An organization is a unit of your client or legal entity - examples are store, department. You can share data between organizations.
active IsActive Mandatory
java.lang.Boolean There are two methods of making records unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reporting. There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records:

(1) The system requires the record for auditing purposes. (2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are existing invoices for it. By de-activating the Business Partner you prevent it from being used in future transactions.

creationDate Created Mandatory
java.util.Date The Created field indicates the date that this record was created.
createdBy CreatedBy Mandatory
ADUser The Created By field indicates the user who created this record.
updated Updated Mandatory
java.util.Date The Updated field indicates the date that this record was updated.
updatedBy UpdatedBy Mandatory
ADUser The Updated By field indicates the user who updated this record.
searchKey Value Mandatory
Max Length: 40
java.lang.String A search key allows for a fast method of finding a particular record. If you leave the search key empty, the system automatically creates a numeric number originating from a document sequence defined in the "Document Sequence" window. The sequence naming convention follows a rule "DocumentNo_TableName", where TableName is the actual name of the database table (e.g. C_Order).

Usually, company's internal identifiers for various records (products, customers, etc) are stored here.

name# Name Mandatory
Max Length: 60
java.lang.String A more descriptive identifier (that does need to be unique) of a record/document that is used as a default search option along with the search key (that is unique and mostly shorter). It is up to 60 characters in length.
description Description Max Length: 255
java.lang.String A description is limited to 255 characters.
default IsDefault Mandatory
java.lang.Boolean The Default Checkbox indicates if this record will be used as a default value.
plannedMargin PlannedMargin Mandatory
java.math.BigDecimal The Planned Margin Percentage indicates the anticipated margin percentage for this project or project line
assetCategory A_Asset_Group_ID FinancialMgmtAssetGroup The group of assets determines default accounts. If an asset group is selected in the product category, assets are created when delivering the asset.
image AD_Image_ID ADImage Defines a system image
summaryLevel Issummary Mandatory
java.lang.Boolean A summary entity represents a branch in a tree rather than an end-node. Summary entities are used for reporting and do not have own values.
productList Product
productCategoryAccountsList ProductCategoryAccounts
productCategoryTrlList ProductCategoryTrl
