Shopping carts

Allows you to store service requests in a shopping cart so they can be ordered later.
Enterprise Marketplace supports the ability to create a shopping cart and add services to that cart. These services can then be sent for approval later.

Transferring the cart

The owner of the cart can transfer it to another user, in case of any scenario that requires such transfer (original owner leaves org, is unable to login to Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications, for example). In exceptional cases, a system admin persona can also transfer the cart to another user (e.g. when the owner is not available). This support presently is only via backend API. Carts can be transferred to another user who belongs to the same buyer team as the original owner of the cart planned to place the order for. For more information, see the Transfer Cart item in Managing carts.
