Issue with Shared With button in view for custom list, new field added after migrated to SP2016 on-prems (from SP2013)

Hi MS support,

I'm migrating from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016 on-premises. However, I encountered 2 issues/cases below:

I. **Shared With button has been disabled in View for custom list in SP2016 but it didn't happen in SP2013.**

Below is scenario:

  • Open a view in a custom list
  • Select an item
  • Check the Shared With button in the ribbon menu, under tab ITEMS: 68011-image.png

II. New fields added in SP2016 (although just migrated content database by backup-restoration approach)
I found 3 below fields added to Document Library, 1 field added to Customlist:

May I check if these are normal behavior in SP2016 on-premises or did I miss any setting?

It will be great if any official article from Microsoft can help.

    Hi @Francis Nguyen ,

    • As to your first scenario, it seems to be a known issue in SharePoint Server 2016. I could also reproduce it in my end. You can install the latest patch here to verify if the issue still persists. As an alternative, you can check items permissions via ellipsis(...) -> Advanced -> Manage Permissions.
    • As to your second scenario, are you sure that those fields aren't migrated from SP2013? Generally, the migration process will not generate new fields in the lists or libraries.
