I have a SP2010 "My Site". When a user edits their profile, in the "Ask Me About" section, there is a semicolon-separated list of terms which the user is supposed to populate. The problem is, though, the user types in some phrase or word, and the result gets "red-lined" and if they try to submit, they get a "The given term is not valid" validation notice in red.
Central Admin > Manage Service Application> User Profile Service Application > Manage User Properties > Ask Me About; I do see a "Pick a Term Set for this property" dropdown menu. The dropdown menu contains:
- Project Keywords
- Wiki Categories (repteated 30+ times)
I'm not sure if this "Term Set" setting even is involved, but the problem does seem to stem from an attempted and failed lookup into a term set somewhere.
Fwiw, I have looked this forum and per the commentary, did verify the settings are as expected.
So with that, does anybody have a suggestion on what I need to change to allow people to add in their own text into the
"Ask Me About" without getting hassled about the term not being valid?
