User has owner permissions. The user enters the keyword in the Enterprise Keywords field, saves the item, opens the same item for editing and the keywords are not there. I can save keywords to the same document. I am also in the owners group. We tried the same keywords. it worked for me, but not for my user.

Any ideas?

I'd check the Managed Metadata Service permissions:



Can the user add Enterprise Keywords at all (as in if the term exists in MMS vs. a new term)?

Your post looks like this one which was never resolved:

Enterprise Keywords not saving in a list

  • The user cannot add any keyword, new or existing. The app pool account has full permissions to the managed metadata service.
