I am working on a sharepoint server on-premise 2013, which have standard CAL license. and i added a new enterprise wiki site collection, where this enterprise wiki site collection will have Managed Navigation enabled by default as follow:-

enter image description here

so seems Managed Navigation is available inside standard CAL, but i was reading this link about the differences between Enterprise CAL & Standard CAL for sharepoint on-premise 2013


which is mentioning that Managed Navigation is only available inside the Enterprise CAL,, but based on my test (as described above) that Standard CAL will have Managed Navigation available... so can anyone advice on this ? is the link providing wrong info ? or Managed Navigation which it is talking about is different from the one i am talking about (which is available inside my Enterprise wiki site collection)??


You are correct, Managed Navigation is part of the SharePoint Standard Cal.

Check below official technet article for the correct information. You have to scroll down all the way bottom of the page and look for Feature availability across SharePoint on-premises plans

As per MSDN official article metadata navigation will be available in both standard and enterprise but foundation doesn`t. Here is the article

  • so seems the info inside this link fpweb.net/sharepoint-2013/… is not 100% correct? at-least since it mentioned that managed navigation is only provided as part of the enterprise CAL ? – john Gu Apr 10 '17 at 0:15
  • Yes. It is always recommended to follow the MSDN official article when change in version and feature comparison. – Venkat Konjeti Apr 10 '17 at 16:32
