Grant anonymous users read access to term store (managed metadata)

Hi!

I have a site collection/web app which has some parts available to anonymous users.

However, if I access a document library without signing in I am not able to access metadata information (i.e managed metadata columns in a document library).

Once I log in I am able to see the information in the managed metadata columns.

Is there any way to allow anonymous users read access to the term store library?

Thanks :)

Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried to add "all authenticated users" in the permission settings of the "Managed Metadata Service Application" but I guess that means exactly what it says - authenticated users. Is there a way to allow everyone (even if not authenticated) to read the metadata?

I need to be able to show metadata columns to anonymous users. I'm pretty sure it's a permission thing since all I have to do is log in as administrator in order to show the metadata.

Short update;

I've added my test user with "Full Control" in the permissions section of the managed metadata service. This did not make any difference.

I still have to log in with a site collection administrator in order to show the metadata.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks, but I am not writing any code.

I simply have a site collection that is available to anyone without logging in. Users who do not log in (sign in is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen instead of username) or users that are not site collection administrators are unable to view any metadata in the document library (i.e a managed metadata column named "type of document"). I only see the name of the column - no content visible.

Once I log in as ste collection admin the data in the column is visible.

Thanks for your suggestions, but the lockdown feature seems like it adds extra restrictions to anonymous users.

I'm trying to let anonymous users as well as "non-site collection admin users" access the managed metadata information.

Does anyone know which permissions that needs to be configured in order to access the term store?

It seems that only site-collection admins are allowed by default when enabling anonymous access....

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
