March 8, 2016, update for SharePoint Server 2013 (KB3114817)

This article describes update KB3114817 for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013, which was released on March 8, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • Improves performance and concurrency for various User Profile Service application (UPA) calls such as GetExtendedReports() and ModifyUserPropertyByAccountName() calls.
  • Translates a label added to the term search box so that JAWS can better describe it. Also translates Open Menu links to allow JAWS users to identify items available in custom lists in SharePoint for all languages.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • After you move a document from a document library to another where location based metadata defaults are used, the document metadata is lost.
    • Focus issue after spellchecking in the Calendar view for keyboard only users.
    • Events for followed groups and feeds don't display in newsfeed. After a restart of a server or the Distributed Cache Service, posts from host-named site collections aren't repopulated to user's consolidation feeds in the My Site.
    • When the personal time zone setting is set differently with the time zone of the My Site host, for example, the personal time zone setting is US Central UTC-6 and the time zone of the My Site host is set to a different value, the personal setting is ignored for rendering the person.aspx page.
    • Some out of the box auto created managed properties are searchable even though they are defined not to be searchable.
    • You can't edit documents in rich client apps in Safari if Office Web Apps (WAC) is disabled.
    • The AskMeAbout Web Part can cause a page to hang on render if the skills defined in the user profile are invalid.
    • Enables administrators to change document parsing time-out and memory limit. Surface document parsing configuration options for timeout and memory usage through registry keys.

      Note See the Registry information section for more information.
    • When a user who has administrative permissions edits a different user's profile picture from the user profile management interface in Central Admin, the picture is saved at the administrator's location instead of the given user. Moreover, later modifications of other users' profile pictures may cause those users' profile pictures all pointing at that same location. Therefore, these users will share the same profile picture.
    • After a member leaves a community, the member count in the Community Web Part has no decrement.
    • The search protocol handler still uses the proxy settings even if the URLs are crawled to match the expression in the bypass list. Therefore, the URLs in the bypass list still use the proxy settings.
    • If the content enrichment web service callout feature is enabled in SharePoint Server and the search schema contains many managed properties, crawling or indexing of documents fails because of too much load on SQL Server. This update reduces the load by caching the schema information.
    • After you copy and paste HTML content into a rich text field on a versioned list that's customized to have an InfoPath form many times, you may no longer be able to update the field value.
