Hi there,

I create a custom Content Type with specific columns in Content Type Gallery in SharePoint Admin Center. What I'm curious about is where the COLUMNS are stored??

Thanks

    Issue Symptom:

    Current status:
    I have found out the Content Type and Site columns live in the following URL: domainname.sharepoint.com/sites/contenttypehub URL and it was a hidden site collection that we could only access /sites/contenttypehub at the end of tenant URL.

    Hi @SHUO .H ,

    First, The content type you have created in SharePoint Admin Center will apply to all sites under your tenant. You can find it in any site under your tenant.
    second, The content type is composed of site columns. So you can find the columns in any site under your tenant.
    For example:
    Choose a site under tenant, go to Site Settings as a site admin.
    Click Site columns.

    Then you can find the column you have created.

    Thanks,
