Managed Metadata for Partner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We wanted to host Partner Collaboration sites without use of Multi-Tenancy . So, for search isolation we plan to use search scopes.

    Is there a way that with same Managed metadata service application instance ( without doing partition) , we are able to show  required term store only to a Partner site ?

     

    I understand advantages of Multi-Tenancy , but still if there is an answer for above question , would like to know answer ?

     

    Thanks.

  • You could create a local term set at the site collection level for each customer, that would only be available to that site collection and thus only to that customer. 

    A connection from a primary or secondary managed metadata service and term set groups to every Web application that contains a site collection for your customer would be less work than managing a tenent.  At least that way customers with a related base term set could consume a single set and still have the ability to add local terms on a site collection basis.

  • John - How to do "create a local term set at the site collection level for each customer, that would only be available to that site collection and thus only to that customer".

     

    I checked Site Collection -> Site Settings -> Term Store Management and it opens the Managed Metadata Service  showing all term stores which i created via Central Admin ... Then how to create a local term set at a site collection ?

     

    Thanks,
