Figure 8.2. Step 2 of the Catalog Creation Wizard, to assign attributes.
On step 2 of the wizard you are simply asked whether you want to hide the catalog from the user on the client machine.
Hiding a catalog is a good idea if you are using it to deploy software that has dependent RPM packages. This way you don't have to rely on the user installing software. For example, you would hide a catalog that is used to deploy virus patterns that are dependent upon the antivirus software being installed.
To hide a catalog, mark the check box next to Hide This Catalog in the Client User Interface.
Catalog Creation Wizard: Summary
Step 3 of the wizard is the Summary page. The Summary page displays all aspects of the catalog. See Figure 8.3.
