Add managed metadata column to list - access denied + terms not visible in lists

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Firstly the following is not a problem for users given "Full Control" (and possibly other permission levels might work) at the web application level in central admin.

For any other user with permissions set at site collection level, even "site owners" (full control) , these problems arise.

  1. When adding managed metadata columns to a new document library list, clicking save results in multiple access denied errors getting logged (as seen using UlsViewer) and an exception is raised (sharepoint error page)
  2. In existing document library lists managed metadata column headings are displayed in list views but the terms text is not displayed.
This problem shows up even if the logged on user is the term set owner.  "Available for tagging" is enabled, submissions policy is closed.
Looking at http://<the-site-domain>/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList/AllItems.aspx and then checking list permissions I can see that "All Authenticated Users" has Read permission level.
Integrated windows authentication - NTLM + Claims Based Authentication is the only authentication method used. It's an intranet site. 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Cannot copy the value of a managed metadata column from one list to another


I have a problem when trying to copy a value of a managed metadata column from one list to another by a Sharepoint Designer (SPD) Workflow

I have two lists. "Locations" and "Employees". "Locations" has a Content Type integrated that has a Site Column of the type managed metadata named "Geographic Location". This Managed Metadata column describes the geographic location from continent down to the city name. I also have a Content Type for the "Employee" list. This one contains a lookup column "Location Abbreviation" on the title column of the "Locations" list and the same managed metadata column "Geographic Location". Now my Workflow is created to work with the Content Type "Employee" and goes like this:

Set current item:Geographic Location to Locations:Geographic Location (where Current Item:Location Abbreviation equals Locations:Location Abbreviation (Lookup Value (As Text)))

But the workflow always reports "Error occured". The message is:

"The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information."

But is is very unlikely that this message is useful as both columns use the same Site Column. Do you have any Ideas?

Access denied when user clicks refresh BDC column button

Access denied occurs with any non Site Collection Administrator regardless of rights.  It only occurs in this site collections, others they are able to refresh.  In this particular collection they can add a BDC column to a list, edit an item and place/resolve a value in the bdc col; but when they refresh they are given an acess denied.  Any thoughts on what they need read access to?  This goes away if I give site admin privs (dont want to do that) or give them read only access on the web application (dont want to do that either).

C# newbie stuck - trying to access column data in a SharePoint list in an SSIS script task

Hello, I'm sure this is the simplest question but I can't figure it out, even with Google's help. I am trying to stumble through some C# code in an SSIS script task and I am frustrated that I can't figure out how to do the easiest things.  I eventually want to find data in a column,and then use another list as a lookup to replace that value with another where the existing value matches a value in the lookup list.  So, the data in my (multiple choice) column might be "apples; bananas" and in another list I have a row that contains two columns, the first holding the value "Apples" and the second containing "Red Delicious" and my original column should read: "Red Delicious; bananas." But, alas, I can't even figure out how to see the data that is in a column. Here is my code: /*<br/> Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Task<br/> Write scripts using Microsoft Visual C# 2008.<br/> The ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.<br/> */<br/> <br/> using System;<br/> using System.Data;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint;<br/> using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;<br/> using System.Windows.Forms;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;<br/> <br/> namespace ST_08becda4c05c49cd9f30ea76110076cd.csproj<br/> {<br/> [

Provision DocumentLibrary with Managed Metadata column

Via the SharePoint 2010 UI I've created a DocumentLibrary and added a new column of type Managed Metadata. I've associated a TermSet with this column and all works fine. Now I need to create a deployment package in Visual Studio 2010. It is easy enough to create the Document Library. I've followed the below steps 1. Create empty SharePoint 2010 project 2. Added new Empty Element to the project. In the Elements.xml I have <Field ID="{15712E76-A603-43AB-885E-CE48BD216381}" Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti" Name="DocTags" DisplayName="DocTags" ShowInDisplayForm="TRUE" ShowInEditForm="TRUE" ShowField="Term1033" Required="FALSE" StaticName="DocTagsInternal" Group="NotSure"/> 3. Added ContentType to the project. Added FieldRef elements to the Element.xml 4. Added List Definition From Content Type and associated it with the above Content Type. 5. Created a List Instance of the above List Definition. 6. Build and Deploy. 7. Associate the column with a Term Set. 8. Add Document to the Document Library. I can select a Term from the applicable TermSet, but when I save the document I get: Failed to get value of the "DocTags" column from the "Managed Metadata" field type control.  See details in log. Exception message: Invalid field name. {00000000-0000-0000-000

Can Managed Metadata columns be edited in the DataSheet View of a Library or List?

Hi, I like to mass set document properties in a library using DataSheet View, the properties are columns based on Managed MetaData values. When I open the doc library in Datasheet view, those columns become read-only. I made sure the library does not require 'Check Out' and also tested it in other views then the AllItems view. Can someone confirm what is the expected functionality and or if there is a bug?

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

search on managed metadata column values

I am trying to search on a managed metadata column in a list.  I have the managed metadata as a mapped property (these are automatically set up actually). I have a column frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) I can enter a search box owstaxIdFrequency=#a132a333-39f1-4737-9ad4-a932482e025f   //this is the taxonomy guid for Daily.  This shows results. How do I search on the word "Daily" in the frequency column?  (I just want to figure it out on a simple search first meaning just using one search box)   I noticed that there are extra maped columns for managed metadata columns (owstaxIdFrequency also has owstaxIdFrequencyx0020Tag, I tried owstaxIdFrequencyx0020Tag="Daily", but it didn't work)

How to link Title to it's associated page in list view without URL path column visible -bug?

I don't know if this is a bug or if I'm an idiot (or perhaps both, I'm open minded).   My site I'm developing is a site with publishing features activated where all my news stories are pages. What I want to have is a sortable list (the type hypothetically achieved using the XsltListView Web Part) the lists these pages with 3 columns visible: The Date created, the title (not the page name), and the author. The tricky part is that I would like the title, when clicked on, to take the person to the page. I'm actually almost there. I've created a new view with these specifications except for one issue. To make the title linked to the page, I have to have the column "URL Path" in my list view. When I remove this column, the titles instead all link to the root of the directory I'm in (ex: if I'm in Pages/Forms/My_List.aspx it will link to Pages/Forms/) Is this a bug, or is the URL Path required for the link to work? Is there a way to hide the column? Thanks.

list of employees - custom list or managed metadata term set ?

Hi all, I am working on a intranet site for a small company with 25 employees. They want to create a site for tracking employee training. Most of the items on this site are going to be associated with an employee entity. What is the best way to manage the employee entity ? should I create a custom list called employee or should I create a term set called employee containing the names of all 25 employees ? In a related question is it possible to add a "people picker" field to a custom list ? ( e.g. Training schedule list ) I note that for 'assign to' columns SharePoint provides a dialog which enables you to browse and select users from active directory. Is there a way to add similar lookup functionality to a custom list in SharePoint ? thanks and regards, Counie  

Create List Sharepoint Client Object Model Access Denied



I am trying to create a silverlight application by making use of the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model using the following code:

private void CreateList(object sender, ClientRequestFailedEventArgs e)
  ClientContext ctx = new ClientContext("http://server");
  ListCreationInformation lc = new ListCreationInformation();
  lc.Title = "FlexiTime";
  lc.Description = "";
  lc.TemplateType = (int)ListTemplateType.GenericList;
  List newList = ctx.Web.Lists.Add(lc);
  System.Threading.ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(new WaitCallback(CreateListCallback), ctx);

private void CreateListCallback(object s)
  var context = (ClientContext)s;  

The error I receive is as follows:


Managed metadata column not displaying data



We are in process of rolling out our new intranet on SharePoint. Two days away from the launch we have run into a strange problem. We have various custom content types and within that we have custom columns which are managed metadata. The columns are then exposed in various document libraries and users choose appropriate metadata when adding the documents to the library. Everything was working fine, until yesterday all of a sudden we were not able to see any data in the columns which were managed metadata columns. But if we edit the properties of the document we can see the field is populated.

Another strange thing is that if the user has full permission in central admin they can see the metadata in the columns, but anyone else (including site owners) cannot.

Can anyone please shed some light on this and if someone knows how to resolve this?



Managed Metadata column not grouping correctly



I'm trying to group a list by a Managed Metadata column, it works fine with my farm admin/site collection admin user account however i can't get it to work for any other user account. I've tried giving one of the other user accounts term store admin but still no luck. With these user accounts all i get is one group which contains all items regardless of what term is selected for the item. The single group displays as an empty term e.g. it looks something like 'MetaData Column: (80)'. However if you look at individual columns you can see what term has been selected.

If it makes any difference I'm experiencing the issue while using an Enterprise Wiki site, I'm trying to group pages in the pages library by the 'Wiki Categories' column. I've set the field to point to a new term set and disabled multiple entries.

Any ideas?

Possible bug in SP2010 - Managed metadata column and STP document library template


Hello I have a problem with managed metadata on two different servers and would like to ask you to try it.

I assume you have managed metadata service running.

1, Open some document library in some site
2, Create column - managed metadata type and select some termset and set it as required.

3, Upload a document and fill in metadata when you will be asked.

4, Then edit properties and check, that metadata are there.

5, Save this library as template.

6, Deploy document library from this template and try steps 3+4.

My problem is, you can select metadata, but they are not saved. e.g. when you check document properties managed metadata are not there.

Can you confirm this behavior ?
Thank you very much.


P.S.: one more weird thing. If you do metadata filling using office 2010 compatible application. Metadata remain there, but they are not visible in document library properties.
