You have a SharePoint 2010 environment with MySites and Managed Metadata Service configured. You create an additional User Profile property within the User Profile Service Application and you want to connect this custom metadata property to a TermSet which is stored in the Managed Metadata Service Application.
You also want to have the "Term Picker" button next to this custom field when a user edits their own profile. Users can then use the picker button to check all the offered values within the term set.
In order to have this configuration working, you will need to have the Term Store where you are storing the Term Set and all the terms configured as the "Default storage location for Keywords" as shown in the screenshot below:
If you have a different Term Store configured as the default storage location for Keywords, you will not see the picker button on the edit user profile page. Currently, this configuration only works with the default Term Store / Managed Metadata Service Application.
