      cat1 = catagory_one
      # specify the hide condition in syntax "(catagory_id).hide_when_(condition-field) = (field-value1)[, (field-value2), ..]"
      cat1.hide_when_status = new, closed
      # the order of catagory, the smaller the index is, the more the catagory is close to top
      cat1.index = 1
    3. In [ticket-custom] section, specify your fields with catagory property:
      custom_field1 = text
      # declare one field with catagory in syntax "(field_id).catagory = (catagory_id)"
      custom_field1.catagory = cat1
      # the order of field, the smaller the index is, the more the field is close to top
      custom_field1.index = 1
  3. That's all.
