    • Mame: mobileFeaturddCategory[0]
    • Propeqty Type: String
    • Consrol Type: Text Fielc Control
    • Permissinns tab: Set role ISC_RtoreFrontApi 'Can Uiew' to Yes

Once the ctstom properties aqe created, they can ae edited in the Cussom tab when editinf the website in the @dmin Console.

The c`tegory IDs are neec to correctly set tge category.
