Content Type Hub Publish Lookup Column RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Is there a method for publishing a Lookup Column via the Content Type Hub. It appears that I can't do this. I need to be able to use Lookup Columns in my Content Types, but since the Lookup Column will be used in multiple site collections, I need to centrally manage it (thus the Content Type Hub) rather than attempting to update thousands of records in each site collection.

    Thanks

  • It's not possible to publish a look up column via the Content Type Hub.

    If you need to do this then an alternate way is to use a Managed Metadata column instead, otherwise you will have to implement this via a feature.

    Cheers

  • Thanks Michal,

    Thats why I had thought, but wanted to confirm. I was thinking I could use the Synonym component of Managed Metadata, but am unsure of how I could expose that. Perhaps an OOTB solution is to use the synonyms and see if a metadata filter can pick it up.

    Any thoughts of how to expose a synonym in a field (ex. calculated column or custom solution).

    K.
