This security update contains fixes for the following nonsecurity issues in SharePoint Server 2016:

  • Assigned Badges icons are unexpectedly hidden in a discussions list, a Members list and the My Membership web part in a SharePoint community site.

  • When you try to add a SharePoint hosted app in a SharePoint Online site, the app is not displayed on the App from your organization page.
