Creating Managed Metadata Terms with IDs via CSOM in SharePoint 2013

December 4, 2012 16:08 by keithkaragan

So in SharePoint 2010 there wasn't a great way to create terms and their IDs remotely - There were some add-on products available that offered this capability, but if you managed you taxonomies elsewhere and wanted to load them in one or more SharePoint Managed Metada Service instances you didn't have a lot of native options. This can be even more important when using a SAAS implementation like SharePoint Online / Office 365. Since the Client-side Object Model (CSOM) in SharePoint 2013 supports the creation of the term with an ID, those days are over!

Sample code for this was a little difficult to find - fortunately Sundar Rajan has a sample available on the 'Musings on SharePoint 2010' blog. The MSDN documentation for Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Taxonomy is pretty much worthless as far as examples are concerned.
