Catalog Services does not offer server-side filtering of items. Searches should be performed client-side.
Catalog Services maintains a single catalog for each API key (client ID). Different applications may choose to use the same catalog by using the same API key(client ID), or different catalogs by using different API keys. At present there is no mechanism for accessing a catalog maintained by an application using a different API key (client ID).
While Catalog Services is not intended for binary storage, you may store any string, including string representations of binary data. The maximum field size is 8K (8192 bytes). For larger data, consider storing via web-accessible storage and referencing by URI.
As with any other service in Intel Cloud Services Portal, Catalog Services is UTF-8 based and should support storage of internationalized strings. However, Catalog Services does not offer internationalized fields that adapt based on client locale; it is up to the application’s implementation to define field naming standards and to implement internationalization.
Catalog Services is schemaless and therefore does not model or enforce foreign keys.
The ItemId field must be a GUID, but you may create another field to hold your own primary key or other identifier.
You can either specify an Item ID or allow the system to automatically generate one. If specified, the Item ID must be a GUID and unique within the catalog. If not specified, the generated ID will be a GUID format and will be universally unique.
Yes. Catalog Services provide the underlying storage for business objects, while Curation Services makes it easy to create favorite and top lists that include those objects.

This is a cloud service: it is cross platform and not device specific. You can use it to build hosted web applications or native applications running on laptops, smartphones, and tablets. The only requirement for the platform is that it has a web browser, and that it can perform HTTP requests.
Yes. Be sure to follow the terms and conditions required by the owners of those services/widgets.
