FIX: Expanding the Entities folder on the Manage Groups page takes a long time in SQL Server MDS

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 DeveloperSQL Server 2016 EnterpriseSQL Server 2016 Enterprise Core


Assume that you manage model object permissions on the Manage Groups page in SQL Server 2017 Master Data Services (MDS) and Microsoft SQL Server 2016 MDS. When you expand the Entities folder of a model, you may notice that it takes a long time to display all the entities under the folder. Additionally, the more entities it has, the longer time that it might take.


This issue is fixed in the following cumulative updates for SQL Server:

       Cumulative Update 1 for SQL Server 2017

       Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2016 RTM

       Cumulative Update 5 for SQL Server 2016 SP1
