Exposing Term store created in one site collection to another site collection.
Generally this use case doesn’t come that often since creating term store at the CA level inside the CT Hub will expose them to all web applications.
But let us say in a dev environment, you created lots & lots of terms with multiple hierarchies. Now all of a sudden the dev site collection changed & now you do not want to go through the process again.
Generally terms are mapped to a site column & then it is used in a list or library. Doing the below will allow you to create a site column inside TARGET site collection & map it to the SOURCE site collection’s term store.
- Navigate to the SOURCE site collection -> Site settings -> Term Store management
- Select the Site Collection Term Set & in the right pane, edit the Site Collection Access text – Here you need to enter the TARGET site collection
