Adding Account Definitions in the IT Shop

A account definition can be requested by shop customers when it is assigned to an IT Shop shelf. To ensure it can be requested, further prerequisites need to be guaranteed.

  • The account definition must be labeled with the IT Shop option.

  • The account definition must be assigned to a service item.

    TIP: In Web Portal, all products that can be requested are grouped together by service category. To make the account definition easier to find in Web Portal, assign a service category to the service item.

  • If the account definition is only assigned to employees using IT Shop assignments, you must also set Only for use in IT Shop. Direct assignment to hierarchical roles may not be possible.
