Change Managed Metadata Database in SharePoint

If you’re using the termstore in SharePoint you might know that these data are stored in the managed metadata service application. If you need to change the managed metadata database for this service application, then you can use one easy Powershell Script. I used it in order to migrate the terms from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2019.

$app = Get-SPServiceApplication -name "Managed Metadata Service"
Set-SPMetadataServiceApplication -Identity $app -Databasename "SP19_INT_Managed_Metadata"

Get-SPDatabase -Identity SP19_INT_Managed_Metadata
