January 12, 2016, update for SharePoint Server 2013 (KB3114487)

Applies to: Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3114487 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013, which was released on January 12, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • Adds a label to the term of the search box so that it's better described by accessibility tools.
  • Adds more descriptive titles to the people picker boxes in the Term Store Management Tool.
  • Adds a property to the WebPartDefinition class to access the WebPart.ZoneID property.
  • Translates some terms of the Site Newsfeeds web part in French for the accuracy of the meaning.
  • Translates some terms in multiple languages for the specific functions on non-English cultures.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • After you move a term from a term set into another term set under a parent term that's pinned and reused in other term sets, the moved term is no longer pinned and doesn't appear in other term sets.
    • When the Taxonomy Update Scheduler timer job runs, a high CPU usage issue occurs, which causes performance issues on multiple web front ends for customers and affects page load time. This issue occurs if customers have hundreds of content databases and use managed metadata services.
    • Fixes an issue related to language specific token normalization in compiling query suggestion dictionaries. Specifically, addresses query suggestions for Turkish letters. For example, when you search for some uppercase sensitive words in a search box, no query suggestion is displayed.
    • The Query.TrimDuplicates property is always set to true if you use a remote SharePoint query source. Therefore, duplicated results are always deleted for a query.
    • If a SQL Server Report Viewer Web Part is created before service pack 1 is installed, a page that contains the Report Viewer Web Part can't be loaded, and you receive the following error message:
      You must first select a report to display in this Web Part. Do this by opening the tool pane and specifying the path and file name of the Reporting Services report that you would like to show. Alternatively, you can connect the Web Part to another Web Part on the page that provides a document path.
    • After you create a view in a publishing sub site, the view is displayed in the datasheet view. Meanwhile, you receive the following error message:
      The list is displayed in Standard view. It cannot be displayed in Datasheet view for one or more of the following reasons: A datasheet component compatible with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation is not installed, your browser does not support ActiveX controls, a component is not properly configured for 32-bit or 64-bit support, or support for ActiveX controls is disabled.
    • When you do a search operation in SharePoint Server 2013, no spelling suggestion is displayed for the search term.
    • The SharePoint Outbound Hybrid Search doesn't work, and you receive the following error message in the query builder when you search for something:
      Microsoft.Ceres.Evaluation.DataModel.Types.SchemaException: Invalid value for long field at Microsoft.Ceres.Evaluation.DataModel.BuiltInFields.PrimitiveInt64Field.set_Value(Object value)
    • When you try to follow a document, you may receive the following error message if the URL of the SharePoint site is long.
      Sorry, we couldn't follow the document.
      This issue occurs if the full URL of the document is more than 255 characters.
