Obtain Managed Metadata WSSID


  • Hi all,

    I need to get the WSSID for a SharePoint 2013 managed metadata term, but don't see the WSSID in the REST call I have returned. I need this so I can update a field via a SharePoint Designer workflow.

    Does SP 2013 still use a WSSID? Where the taxonomy hidden list for non-Enterprise keyword terms?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi Kelly,

    I have actually not used workflow to update the Taxonomy column.

    For getting the full IF;#Term|GUID using REST call 

    you can make a call like this to get the values for owstaxidmetadataalltagsinfo refiner:

    http:// siteurl /_api/search/query?querytext='*'&refiners='owstaxidmetadataalltagsinfo'
    You will get some values with this format:

    L0|#036f7c08a-0176-47e9-9d70-070291ce0e32|Data Warehousing
