Managed navigation not visible to Readers


  • I successfuly created a Term Set and selected it in the Navigation settings of my site collection.

    However, the navigation nodes are not visible to users with Visitor access. Is this a known behavior?

  • Apparently the navigation nodes which do not have a page will not be shown to Readers (it makes sense, otherwise they get 404 Not Found).

  • Create a simple page with the desired access, e.g. Visitors. Put a JavaScript transfer on that page using the Script Web Part, e.g. 

    <script type="text/javascript">
    ;( function() {
        if ( document.forms[0].elements["_wikiPageMode.value"] == "true" || document.forms[0].elements["MSOLayout_InDesignMode"].value == "1") {

    Set the Term Set Navigation via "Term-Driven Page with Friendy URL" \ "Change target page for this term" to the redirect page and it works.

    A bit of lifting but it works. One could improve it by using QueryString to make one dynamic page to fit all.
