SharePoint 2013 : Missing Suit links bar (Newsfeed, SkyDrive and Sites)

When we create a SharePoint farm, we may miss the top right navigation menu also known as “Suit links bar”

To make the navigation links available we need to follow the steps given below

1. Create user profile service application

2.Provide My Site host url in user profile service application

There are 2 places where you can provide the My Site host url

  • When provisioning the service application
  • “Setup My Sites” section

That will add relevant links to suit links bar

Hello,

I am currently having the same problem, I am missing the Suit links bar (Newsfeed, SkyDrive and Sites). I read your post and the steps, but where do you go to create a 'User profile service application' (Your step 1).

I definitely will look forward on your feedback.

Thanks.
DH
