Came into work this morning to discover my tenant no longer has access to the Top Link Bar in our SharePoint sites while using the Modern experience. Has anyone else encountered this?
*Edit* This appears to have affected sites with Publishing enabled. Top link bar isn't visible while using any app or Pages. Site Collections started Classic but are mostly Modern at this point. Hasn't been an issue ever.

I am having this issue as well. The top nav was there all morning and early afternoon. A couple hours ago it disappeared with no explanation.
10-09-2017 01:50 PM
Yes, I happened sometime this morning Central Time for us. We had a morning meeting about rolling out our new sites and then by the time for the second meeting the navigation was gone. System pages still respect the navigation but modern pages, other than the home page don't have any navigation at the top of the page.

Noticed the same issue for all modern group sites. Publishing feature activated on all sites. The navigation appears the first time i go in to a site. After a refresh the navigation is gone.

Same problem here. With publishing enabled on the sites collection. For us, it's everywhere, pages, Library and subsites.
And no, it's not a Modern Team site, it's a classic one. Saw that : https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/UPDATE-Support-for-Structured-Managed-Navigation-e... but doesn't help us.
Any advices ?

I should clarify my own situation then--we don't use Modern Team sites, rather Classic sites with all Modern parts (and pages) where possible.
10-10-2017 07:43 AM
Hi, same situation for my customer in Italy.
Modern Team sites, modern pages affected.

Good Afternoon Everyone...
Glad to have come accross this post, i have 2 Clients who have the exact same issue.
Tennant 1 - The use publishing and have a custom page layout and custom HTML Nav so the issue is not effecting there top level site due to the way they use sharepoint however the modern lists and libraries have no top link bar.
Tennant 2 - Use Modern Site Pages and Lists and Libraries but the navigation has gone completly from all areas using Modern. Classic seems fine but they are not using this so this is a big concern for this client.
Tennent 3 - My own tennant i use modern sharepoint in a non publishing site and use modern pages, libraries and lists and works ok, I tested using a new Site Collection with Publishing on and the navigation for sites on the modern pages appears ok for me but again lists and libraries in modern experience dont show the navigation.
So a known issue now with 2 clients including myself and no further forward to getting a reply other than looking at the HTML and there is a difference in the ones working and not working as you can see below...
NAvigation not working HTML
<div class="ms-compositeHeader-topWrapper noNav ms-hiddenMdDown" data-reactid=".2.0.3"></div>
Navigation Working HTML
<div class="ms-compositeHeader-topWrapper ms-hiddenMdDown"> there is more within this Div as it works.
Any input would be great as i have been scratching my head all day but this was working fine yesterday morning and last week as i was building this and teaching this.

I also have this problem. Hard to believe they don't have a ticket opened yet.
10-10-2017 12:06 PM
Thanks for chipping in, everybody! Hopefully one of us will get a ticket/forum response from Microsoft soon on this.

Thank you but didn't work for us too.
Had open a ticket, waiting for a response.
Hope it will be fix soon.

Hi Everyone... This was te reponse i got from Microsoft last night. Still have the same issue here also for all 3 tennants im currently dealing with.
"The issue has not yet tagged by Microsoft Engineers as an incident that should be reflecting on the service health per affected tenancy.
We as well are waiting for the investigation reports of the Microsoft Engineers on the back end."
10-11-2017 07:29 AM
Thanks for posting about this issue, i've been investigating and we are currently working on a fix.
More details will be posted on the service health dashboard under SP123259 .

This issue should now be resolved!
10-11-2017 08:07 AM
I just wish there was a way to get this sort of issue to someone who can take care of it in a reasonable timeframe. We've been dealing with this issue for a couple days, but it looks like it only took an hour or two to resolve once it was in front of the right person.
I *just* launched a new Intranet through SharePoint last week, and to have the main navigation disappear as people try to get used to a new platform is pretty infuriating.

@Sam Larson, thanks for notifying us of this fix. I appreciate your team's work on getting this fixed, but I would echo Steve and Pierre's sentiment that an issue this disruptive took way too long to get in front of capable hands. I had a ticket started at 8:43 EST on 10/9/2017, ticket number #30126-6527252.
Thanks for your patience and understanding with us!

still have the same problem. Navigation on pages is good, but when I navigate to a library the navigation is still broken. I can't see the top bar.

10-11-2017 09:17 AM
I see this reported in the Admin Center Health as - SP123259 Global navigationbar issue
They are reporting it fixed but not in my Tenant. We still have the issue
10-11-2017 09:20 AM
I have the same issue as maurtis, that the modern pages are now working which is great however i still have the issue with modern lists and libraries that the navigation doesnt appear.
Any updates on when this will be ressolved?
10-11-2017 09:30 AM
OK everybody , it should now be fixed for everything.
Can a few of you test and confirm?

Thanks for the confirmations! This should be fully resolved now, if you are still seeing issues make sure you do a hard refresh on the page . Ctrl+F5

Above lists and libraries the menu is cut short and I see an edit button (which does nothing)
PS: While I am here ( I have posted this somewhere else too) I would also like to flag that the menu looks different above pages vs lists/libraries. Longer titles are just cut short, which certainly shouldn't happen either.
10-12-2017 06:24 AM
Finally this morning the top link bar was back.
Think I'm last on the list for everything :-)
10-12-2017 06:44 AM
I see this, too, and it's less than helpful. Looks like it still applies to only Publishing sites. @Sam Larson, is this an intended rollout or another bug?

I am experiencing the same issue. Global navigation is displaying in the classic mode but not available in the modern view, modern page. Any information will be helpful.

@Sam Larson This issue was just brought to my attention by one of my end users. I know this original thread was from a year ago, however it seems to have come back (?). I have a print screen of what the site looked like when they came in (only 1 link on top navigation ribbon) and the second screen show that if you edit the navigation ribbon and add an item, the rest of the links show up. It only stays this way until you refresh the page.
