Admin

Listing Tags

Admins can apply tags to a new or existing listing. Tags can be added and removed at any time and are only applied to listings once a listing is saved. Once a tag has been added to a listing, admins can search for the same tag in another listing. However, if a tag is removed from all listings, the tag will be removed from the account.

Currently tags can only be viewed in an individual listing. This functionality will be incorporated as an enhancement to Catalog search capabilities in a future release.

APIs

The Catalog API Documentation can be accessed from the Catalog Admin dashboard.

 

User Registrations API

The User Registrations API allows admins to register a user via Catalog, which will create a Canvas account for that user. When a user is created via the new API endpoint, they will receive a Catalog-branded e-mail to confirm their account and set a password.

 

Certificates

Error Handling

When an admin creates a custom certificate with a bad syntax, such as if a bracket is missing in a supported variable, Catalog generates an error message. Errors are created for both previewing and saving a certificate.
