New Class

Description: You can define the class for each level of the catalog hierarchy (Items, Item Groups, Product Groups, and Chapters). Each class can have defined Feature and Keywords. When you apply the class for the Item or Item group then the Item/Item group will inherit the Feature and Keywords from the class. This use case describes how to create new class.
