Managed Metadata Service – Enable Feature

August 16th, 2012 Comments off

You have setup every bit you can think about the Managed Metadata Service and when you try to create a new Managed Metadata column. You see this message.

“The required feature is not enabled for this column type”

In order to solve this problem, you need to activate a hidden feature. Please use below PowerShell command to activate the feature on your site collection.

Enable-SPFeature –identity “73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C” -URL http://yoursite

It all should be good afterward.


Permissions for Managed Metadata Service

August 15th, 2012 Comments off

Recently I build a new SharePoint VM. When I started looking at the Managed Metadata Service, I found that I couldn’t add new group. Or simply in term store Add New Group option was not available.
Then I realised that I haven’t setup the permissions for MMS. In order to set the permissions for MMS, open Manage Service Applications. Then select the Managed Metadata Service. Don’t click on the link just select it by clicking in front of the link. Now select Administrators from the ribbon. Add your user account there and select Full Access in permissions box.

Now click on the Managed Metadata Service link and it will open the Term Store Management Tool. Add your user to Term Store Administrators and you are all set to do all with Managed Metadata.

Have fun!
