Description of the security update for SharePoint Server 2016: June 13, 2017

Improvements and fixes

This security update contains improvements and fixes for the following nonsecurity issues in Project Server 2016:

  • Improve the performance of the Reporting (Project Publish) queue jobs.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • Consider the following scenario:
      • A project manager publishes a task to a team member.
      • The team member in either a timesheet or in tasks within Project Web App reports work that’s earlier than what was scheduled. For example, 8 hours of work was scheduled on Wednesday but 8 hours of actual work was reported and submitted for Monday.
      • The status manager approves the update.
      • The team member zeros out the actual work and moves it to a later date.
      • The status manager approves the update.
      • The project is opened in Microsoft Project Server.

      In this situation, the task’s actual start date still reflects the earlier update instead of the new update where the actual start date is later.

    • The Reporting (Project Publish) job takes longer than expected in Project Server 2016.
    • Suppose you go to the Project Center page in the Project Web app and select many projects. When you click the Open In Microsoft Project option, nothing seems to happen, and the expected master project isn’t created in Project Professional. Now, when you’ve selected more projects than can be used to create a master project via this method, you’ll see a message similar to this:

      Your selection exceeds the limit for the number of projects we can open at a time from Project Web App. We created a master project with the supported number of projects. You can then add additional projects by going through Insert Subproject.

    • Resources from approved engagements become local resources in Project Professional if the project manager doesn’t have sufficient permissions to that resource.
    • When you add new tasks to a project while editing a project in PWA, formulas that use the Now() or CurrentDate() functions calculate incorrect results.
    • An assignment’s Finish Date, Work, and Remaining Work values are wrong when team members enter material units in PWA Tasks or Timesheets views.
    • User-generated (ad hoc) custom filters that are applied to PWA views don’t display data values. For example, you open a custom filter dialog box in Project Center to add a filter on a date column. After you save, close, and then reopen the dialog box, the date you set isn’t displayed.
    • When you submit a status update, task-level baseline data disappears from the Tasks view for the given task assignments.

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

  • Translate some terms in multiple languages to make sure that the meaning is accurate.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • Word documents and PowerPoint presentations that have invalid hyperlinks aren’t searchable.
    • The body property of large files is dropped in Content Enrichment Web Service (CEWS). This update deletes the thresholds of the maximum body size of a document before sending it to CEWS.
    • Administrators who wish to suppress modern authentication with Office 2016 applications can now configure the SPSecurityTokenServiceConfig object when the SuppressModernAuthForOfficeClients property is set to $false.
    • The SPFile.Author property now has a value for installations after migrating from the classic-mode authentication to claims-based mode authentication.
    • SPWebApplication FileNotFoundPage is not displayed correctly in some web browsers.
    • Server-side defined timesheet view grouping doesn’t work with custom fields.
    • After you delete a search center sub site, you can’t download search reports from site settings.
    • When there are more than 100 site collections, you can see paging on the Tenant Admin page (TA_SiteCollections.aspx).
    • Metadata navigation does not work for task lists.
