SharePoint Add-in Recipe - MMS Manipulation
csom, Development, Office 365, SharePoint, SharePoint add-ins, SharePoint REST API
The approach you take to perform Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations in the Managed Metadata Service (MMS) is different in the new SharePoint Add-in model than it was with Full Trust Code. In a typical Full Trust Code (FTC) / Farm Solution scenario, MMS CRUD operations were performed with the SharePoint server-side object model code and deployed via Farm Solutions.
In a SharePoint Add-in model scenario, MMS CRUD operations are performed with the client-side object model (CSOM).
The CSOM provides all of the operations necessary to replicate and synchronize data in the MMS.
