With this piece of code, I get the properties of all terms of termset. I'd like to get the Friendly URL also.


I tried : _Sys_Nav_FriendlyUrlSegment but that does not work.

Navigation Node Type:

try the below code,


The above code gives you the simple link.

AFAIK, term.LocalCustomProperties doesn't have the friendly URL property, so you can try the below approach, it will help you to get the friendly URL using JSOM, but not using PnP JS,

To retrieve the friendly URL you could utilize SP.Publishing.Navigation.NavigationTerm object which:

Specifies navigation behavior and properties for a SP.Taxonomy.Term
constructor (sp.taxonomy)
object that is used to drive the navigation and friendly URLs for a website.

The specified class contains getWebRelativeFriendlyUrl method which

returns the friendly URL segments as a concatenated path.


var scriptbase = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl+"/_layouts/15";

$.getScript(scriptbase +"/sp.runtime.js",function(){    
    $.getScript(scriptbase + "/sp.js", function() {
        $.getScript(scriptbase + "/sp.publishing.js",function(){

                var termId = "--Term ID goes here--";

                var ctx = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
                var taxSession = SP.Taxonomy.TaxonomySession.getTaxonomySession(ctx);

                var term = taxSession.getTerm(termId);
                var navTerm = SP.Publishing.Navigation.NavigationTerm.getAsResolvedByWeb(ctx,term, ctx.get_web(), "CurrentNavigationTaxonomyProvider");
                var friendlyUrl = navTerm.getWebRelativeFriendlyUrl();

                ctx.executeQueryAsync(function() {
                function(sender,args) {


  • When I select Simple Link in the Navigation Node Type, I can retrieve the Url with _Sys_Nav_SimpleLinkUrl, but I would like to do than automatically with a Friendly URL

  • I would like to use this JSOM script in my webpart, and I have to register the SharePoint JSOM API as external scripts like in this exemple (see Reference JSOM declaratively section). How can I do that?
