Using SharePoint REST API to GET List properties: ListItemEntityTypeFullName

While working with the REST API, I seem to forget how to quickly find the ListItemEntityTypeFullName property for a SharePoint List. Here is a quick reminder.

To GET the List properties, enter one of the following example URLs into your browser:

  • https://[TENANT].sharepoint.com/sites/[SITE]/_api/web/lists(‘00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000‘)
  • https://[TENANT].sharepoint.com/sites/[SITE]/_api/web/lists/getbytitle(‘[ListName]‘)

To GET on the ListItemEntityTypeFullName property, enter one of the following example URLs into your browser:

  • https://[TENANT].sharepoint.com/sites/[SITE]/_api/web/lists(‘00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000‘)?$select=ListItemEntityTypeFullName
  • https://[TENANT].sharepoint.com/sites/[SITE]/_api/web/lists/getbytitle(‘[ListName]‘)?$select=ListItemEntityTypeFullName
