Managed Metadata Security

Quick note about Managed Metadata:

Don’t forget if you are scripting the creation / import of Managed Metadata termsets, you need to ensure that the account running the script has Admin rights on the Managed Metadata service (under Service App management in Central Admin). You also need to make sure that the Web App account also has read access so you can connect the Managed Metadata fields in the site collection to the Service in the farm.

If you do not do this, you will find that your script fails (along with everything else that has a dependency on the Managed Metadata fields to operate).


About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
