Selection Matrix

A selection matrix can be used in one of these scenarios:

The matrix is in the form of a table. It can be used with up to 6 manually entered selection columns and at least one response column. Where the Matrix is populated using an API, it can be used with 9 selection columns.

This document explains the use of the selection matrix as product configuration element.

Note that while different elements are available to product and procurement using Selection Matrix configuration, system enforced segregation does not exist. Where the procurement configuration elements Attribute and Formula are used in product configuration, or other areas where Matrix is used, a blank or zero key value and corresponding matrix value, where one exists, will be returned.
