A Custom Category is a category introduced by a method author to structure any number of Method Content Elements of any
type based on user-defined criteria. Custom categories can be used to categorize content based on the user's criteria
as well as to define whole tree-structures of nested categories allowing the user to systematically navigate and browse
Method Content and Processes based on these categories. This application of Custom Categories is also called &lt;a
class=&quot;elementLink&quot; href=&quot;./../../../base_concepts/guidances/concepts/view,_uMKSsBUFEdqrUt4zetC1gg.html&quot;
One could create a Custom Category to logically organize content relevant for the user development organization's
departments: A &quot;Testing&quot; category would group together all Roles, Work Products, Tasks, Capability Patterns and
Guidance relevant to testing.
Another example would be categories that express licensing levels of the content: These categories would separate
freely distributable Method Content from Method Content that represents intellectual property and requires a purchased
license for use.
