Configure Managed Metadata Service Application on SharePoint Server 2013


In this post I will tell you how to configure Managed Metadata Service Application on SharePoint Farm.

First of all we should know what is metadata service?

The Managed Metadata’s  primary purpose is to provide you with a central location to store metadata (commonly defined as data about data) that can be utilised throughout any site within your SharePoint farm.

You can read here more in detail about Managed Metadata Service Application.

Here we start configuration of metadata server.

1) Open Central Administration, Go to Application Management >> Manage Service Application >> Click on New >> Select Managed Metadata Service.

NewSearchServiceApplication

You can give name to service whatever you want, I’ve given “Managed Metadata Service” for more clarity.

and Database name as Managed_Metadata.

MetadataName

Give AppPool name “SharePoint – Managed Metadata Service”

I’ve used svcMetadata service account for Application Pool Identity.

MetadataAppPoolName

Click on OK.

Once the service is created you can see it listed on Managed Service Application Page.

MetadataListed

Now we need to start Metadata Service from SharePoint Services on Server page.

for that go to Central Panel >> Under System Settings >> Manage Services on the server.

Start “Managed Metadata Web Service”

StartManagedMetadataService

Go back to Manage Application Service and Open Metadata Service Application

This will launch the below screen which is referred to as the Term Management Tool.

  1. thank you, but iisreset was needed before launching the Term Management Tool else it would get an error stating the "Managed Metadata Web Service" has not been started.

  2. If iisreset does not work. Then close and re-open browser. The error stating the "Managed Metadata Web Service" has not been started should be gone.

  6. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
