I have requirement to create the termGroup in TermStore.

 private void ProvisionTermGroups(SPFarm farm)
                DebugWriter.Write("Started processing of term groups", this);
                foreach (TermGroup termGroup in this.Farm.ManagedMetadata)

                        if (termGroup.Action == Action.Add)
                            //TODO: Code processing of term groups
                            foreach (TermSet termSet in termGroup.TermSets)
                                //TODO: Code processing of term sets
                                foreach (Term term in termSet.Terms)
                                    //TODO: Code processing of term

My code structure as above.

How can i get the Site collection context of central administration from the FARM object to provision Term Group in Term Store ?

I have tried getting the default server from the local.farm but i am not able to get the Sharepoint Central Administration of the "SpServer" ?

Can i get term-store Object from the Service Instances in farm?

Try using below code

var service = SPFarm.Local.Services.GetValue<SPWebService>(string.Empty);
foreach (SPWebApplication webApplication in service.WebApplications)
  • Not working as expected. Need something else.
