Use this procedure to add a batch attribute group to an item for a customer. When you assign a group of attributes to an item, all of the attributes included in the group apply to the item for this customer. Any changes that you make to the attributes in the group automatically apply to all items that use that group.


Before you can add a batch attribute group to an item for a specific customer, you must first add the batch attribute group to the item. For more information, see Add a batch attribute group to an item.
