Column definitions do not return "term" details for managed metadata fields

Jim Love 41 Reputation points

The documentation states that a managed metadata column will return term information in its column, definition, but I do not see this to be the case. There is no "term" property returned when querying for a managed metadata column in either beta or v1.0

    Hi @Jim Love

    According to the documentation, site and list column responses will only return basic property and not the term property. The term property is a type-related property that is returned only in content-type columns.

    User's image

    GET /sites/{site-id}/contentTypes/{contentType-id}/columns/{column-id} 
    GET /sites/{site-id}/lists/{list-id}/contentTypes/{contentType-id}/columns/{column-id}

    Hope this helps.
