I have a custom html and javascript file housed within a document library of a subsite: http://teamsite/project/testing%20site/shared%20documents/test.html and

http://teamsite/project/testing%20site/shared%20documents/test.js




function testContext(){
var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext("http://teamsite/projects/testing%20site/");
var oWebsite = clientContext.get_web();
this.collList = oWebsite.get_lists();

clientContext.load(collList);

clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onWin), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onFail));

function onWin(){alert("Success");}
function onFail(){ alert("Fail");}

Everytime I execute the above I get this error:

SCRIPT5022: Sys.ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range. Parameter name: serverRelativeUrl sp.runtime.js, line 2 character 38258

I've tried several different methods to get CSOM to work in this instance and everytime I get the same error.

The constructor SP.ClientContext(serverRelativeUrlOrFullUrl) expects serverRelativeUrlOrFullUrl to be the server-relative URL that:

  • starts with /
  • or a full URL that starts with http:// or https://

in SharePoint 2013.

In SharePoint 2010 it could be only the server-relative URL that starts with /.


As an alternative you could utilize:

var ctx = SP.ClientContext.get_current();

to get the current client context of the client-side object model (CSOM) runtime

  • This doesn't appear to work because the javascript lives outside of webparts. Code: var ctx = SP.ClientContext.get_current(); var oWebsite = ctx.get_web(); this.collList = oWebsite.get_lists(); clientContext.load(collList); clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onWin), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onFail)); Throws 2x errors: SCRIPT5007: Unable to get value of the property 'webServerRelativeUrl': object is null or undefined SCRIPT5022: Sys.ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range. Parameter name: serverRelativeUrl – Patrick Burke Sep 26 '14 at 14:43
  • So assuming the HTML and Javascript are executing out of site/sitename/shareddocuments and the list I want to access is in site/sitename I have attempted absolute URL reference 'site/sitename' (fails) and the relative URLs '../' and 'site/sitename' and '../.' and all fail. – Patrick Burke Sep 26 '14 at 14:48

Use like this:

var siteUrl = '/sites/MySiteCollection';

var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(siteUrl);

Use relative Url in site url

  • Per my example I assume you mean: siteUrl = 'projects/testing%20site' which returns the same error. – Patrick Burke Sep 26 '14 at 12:46
  • As in example start your url with "/" – Aanchal Sep 26 '14 at 14:15
  • It appears to have executed but now throws the error: "Request failed. The security validation for this page is invalid and might be corrupted. Please use your browser's Back button to try your operation again. undefined." – Patrick Burke Sep 26 '14 at 14:56
  • Are you calling this from another site collection or from same site collection. – Aanchal Sep 26 '14 at 15:00
  • If you turn off the Web Page Security Validation, the security goes away. Manage Web Application----> Select the web application---Click on General Settings(under the ribbon) and turn off the Web Page Security Validation. – Aanchal Sep 26 '14 at 15:02
