How to add/append metadata stored within the Sharepoint Term Store to a crawled item

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi All,

I need someone to explain to me how to add/append metadata stored within the Sharepoint Term Store to a crawled item (i.e., can it only be done via External Content Type?). Bascially i need to know if there is any Out of the box solution for this?


Much appreciated.

How to add custom properties to terms in the SharePoint 2010 managed metadata term store?


There is a "Term.CustomProperties" collection to get the collection of custom property objects for the current Term object from the read-only dictionary.
But where and how to define and set custom properies for terms? This dictionary seems to be read-only by default.

Any help / documentation would be appreciated. / Frank

SharePoint Designer 2010: Business data connectivity metadata store is unavailable

Running SharePoint Server 2010 RTM. Fresh install in production not via the wizard but a vanilla install and bringing services up one by one. Just brought up the Business Data Connectivity Service. Other services currently up are Managed Metadata Service and User Profile Service. Two web applications with services deployed to both web applications. The scenario below holds true when connecting to a site on either web application. 1) Open a site, i.e., root portal site, in SharePoint Designer 2010 2) Click External Content Types. Error returned: "The Business Data Connectivity Metadata Store is currently unavailable" is returned. 3) Click Ok then click New | External Content Type. Error returned "THe server was unable to process the request due to an internal error. For more information about the error, either turn on IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults...". The Business Data Connectivity Service status in Central Administration is Started. Any ideas?

SharePoint 2010 search crawl error: The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when request

SharePoint 2010 search crawl error:
The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when requesting data from the web service. ( Error from SharePoint site: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. )

This error is for both document and folder. The document and folder were created/uploaded via SharePoint User Interface only. Later these doc/folder were deleted. And we found the search result showing the documents that were deleted from the doc library resulting in '404 page not found error' upon clicking. Ofcourse we did an incremental crawl after  deleting the file/folder. The error is same even after full crawl.

Environment details:
1 server - WFE role
1 server - App server role
1 server - index server role

Another information if helpful: We used some third party tool to migrate few sample data in the same server but on different site collection, different content database but on the same web application. The tool migrated the data and set unique permissions too for the migrated files. We tried deleting them via SharePoint interface and that files too gave a similar error!

Auto-Update Managed Metadata Term Store from External DB or List

Hi all,

I have been able to import terms using the .CSV file within the MMSA Term Store, but is there a way to auto-update the terms from an external list. Example: An external database already has terms and adds terms on a regular basis. Is there a method for updating the Term Store automatically when terms are added in the external source. Perhaps creating a SharePoint List populated with external data and somehow linking this up to the Managed Metadata terms? I know that System keywords are added to the term store when a user tags an item, but is there a way to tie into this functionality for managed metadata?

How do I get SharePoint items tagged with a term from the term store?



I'm trying to create a web part that lists SP items by the terms (from a managed metadata store) they are tagged with. I can't find any Taxonomy web parts that could be extended (are there any?). Does anyone know how to query sharepoint for items tagged with taxonomy terms?

googled it, found some fix:

1. install the hotfix

2. simply checking the services are running

3. checking for necessary security permissions on the BDC Service Application

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter


We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.


For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).


In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:
