Now I could successfult create list based on list template but when i saved my list template i could say "Include Content" but when the list created by this code it was empty with no content any ideas ?

function createLists() {

var context = new SP.ClientContext('/groupcompanies/AAC');
var web = context.get_web();

var listInfo = new SP.ListCreationInformation();
listInfo.set_title('ListCreation Test');
listInfo.set_description('photo gallery picture library');
var list = web.get_lists().add(listInfo);


     function () {
        console.log(String.format('List {0} has been created successfully',list.get_title()));
     function (sender, args) {
        console.log("%c Ops!" + args.get_message(),"color:red;");

}//end createLists
  • An alternative approach (hence not an answer) would be to provision the new lists using only code; would make your solution independent of any other assets that may or may not exist no the server, making the solution much more resilient if you needed to re-deploy, make updates, or deploy to multiple environments

The FeatureId 00BFEA71-52D4-45B3-B544-B1C71B620109 is used for Custom lists. You need to check the FeatureId of your custom template. To determine FeatureId property, you could save your list as a template, then go to List Template Gallery page (/_catalogs/lt/Forms/AllItems.aspx) and find the Feature Id value of the corresponding. list. see the answer by Vadim Gremyachev for more information: How can one create a custom list in JSOM based on a custom list template (STP) in 2013?
