Setting up IT Shop Structures

Setting up IT Shop Structures

Depending on the company structure, you can optionally define shopping centers for your IT Shop solution where several shops can be bought together under one roof. Always add the shopping center to the top level of the IT Shop. Shopping centers may not be hierarchical.

Each shop contains a number of shelves that the customer can request products from. You can add a shop to the top level of the IT Shop or under a shopping center. Shops may not be hierarchical.

There are various products available for request on shelves. Shelves are set up under each shop.

IMPORTANT: If a shop contains a large number of customer, the calculations in the IT Shop can cause a heavy load on the DBQueue Processor and therefore on the database server as well.

Structure the IT Shop such that no more than 30 000 customers can make requests in each shop! If necessary, set up your own shopping center with several shops and customer nodes.

  1. Select the category IT Shop | IT Shop.
