SharePoint 2019 Standard vs. Enterprise, Updates / Release / Patch / Versions and the SharePoint Framework Releases

We have an SP2019 test farm running SharePoint Server 2019 Standard, version 16.0.10351.20000 (October 2019). I have a few questions regarding compatibility between SPFX development and SP2019 on-premise:

  1. Is it important to keep the SP2019 environment updated with the latest monthly release in order to ensure compatibility with the latest version of the SharePoint Framework?

  2. Is there any guidance regarding development targeting SP2019 standard edition vs. enterprise (article, blog post)?

  3. Some on-line posts state that SPFX should be kept at version 1.4.1 for SP2019. Is this still true?

  4. Does anyone have any experience regarding possible deployment issues when development is performed on SharePoint Online? Development environment is O365.

Thanks in advance!

Search not working properly – SP Enterprise 2016

I’ve created a new SP Enterprise 16 dev environment. I’ve run a crawl and everything seems to be indexing correctly via central administration. However, things will not populate in the site search, nor will the CSWP provide any results. For example, I have a photo library called “news and announcements photos” and if I change my query to search for images in that library, 0 results will populate. Can anyone give me an idea or references of what might be going on here? Thanks.

Using Enterprise keywords in a Microsoft Word Content Type template

Is it possible to add the Enterprise keywords field to your Word template so a user can fill in keywords during initial creation of his Word document?

I’ve created a document library and added extra property fields. I’ve also added custom content types (Word documents). And in those documents I’ve added my custom fields through “Insert > Quick Parts > Document property” so that a user can complete these fields inside the document. This works for all custom fields except for the enterprise keywords. I can complete the field in Word. But after saving this field doesn’t get synced to the library and the results are not visible in SharePoint.

Please ask if you require more information.

Clicking on an Enterprise Wiki Category link only returns the current page

In Sharepoint Online, I have an Enterprise Wiki that I created using CSOM.

I have a term store and on each page there is a Categories section which shows terms: enter image description here

When I click on one of these, I would expect to see a list of all the pages with the same term/category. But I only get 1 result: The page itself:

enter image description here

I can add new terms to the ones that were created with CSOM but they behave the same.

Using the Term Store Manangement Tool everything looks normal: enter image description here

Why don’t I get the list of pages that I expect?

Enterprise Search Query Rules not affecting results

I am trying to have certain documents be listed first in search results for my company’s SharePoint site (not Online). To do this, I am creating a new query rule, removing search conditions, and “change ranked results by changing the query”. Then I set a filter on the content type to equal the desired content type (or file extension, that did not work either). The test query results don’t return anything if it’s a custom content type I made. The query test does seem to work with sorting documents according to last modified time, but when I try it in the site’s search bar I get different results (documents from a year or more ago instead of the ones changed yesterday).

I have tried creating these rules at the site collection level as well as the subsite level, nothing seems to change the results. Any idea what is going on here? Could it be some other setting somewhere is blocking these changes from taking effect? Does it just need to reindex? Thanks in advance.

SharePoint 2010 Foundation vs Enterprise Security Vulnerability Patch

We have a little confusion here as to which security patches we should be applying to our SharePoint 2010 Enterprise farm. The following states there is a patch for Foundation Server, but nothing for Enterprise 2010 Server. Why is this? Is the security patch covered elsewhere? Where?

How to access Enterprise Task Custom field in macro?

I need to use below function in my MS Project vba macro.

Application.CustomFieldValueListAdd FieldID:=lookupfield, Value:=i

It works fine for local field(field created locally in ms project in active project). But it doesn’t work for Enterprise Custom Field of Task type. I am able to get id using function FieldNameToFieldConstant(“Product_task”, pjTask), but it is giving error if I use this generated id in first function. I hope my problem is clear.
