Term Store Management: I need to modify a large number of items in the Managed Metadata store that are used for Global Navigation.

I can do this one-by-one in the browser, but there's loads to go through - is there a way that I can do this using PowerShell?

  • What kind of modifications do want to perform? Just renaming term sets or anything else? Oct 25, 2018 at 16:55
  • Updating the "Sample Link or header" field (i.e. the URL)

I would suggest looking at PnP PowerShell. This is a collection of commandlets that extend the capability of PowerShell. This article explains several capabilities PnP PowerShell provides for managing the Term Store:



I found this link which reads xml file and performs various operations on managed Metadata terms.

This link includes following operations:

  1. Merge
