Introduction:
How can I assign permission to offerings in service catalog based on EEM group membership?
Instructions:
First, to edit an offerings permissions, you need to login to catalog with a user who has permission to edit that offering and then go into that offerings permissions tab.

You can assign permission based on the Catalog Role of the user in that business unit or based on the EEM group membership.
If the user is EITHER in one of the roles that you select OR they are in the EEM group that you specify then they should have permission to that offering. To verify this, go to administration, users, from within catalog and edit the user in question. You should see the role permissions for the BU in question and you should also see the groups they are a member of as seen below:

If you do not see the groups it's a member of, then you need to check that you have enabled group lookups in EEM as shown below. Disabling these lookups can greatly improve performance, so it's something to consider:
