I need to get the versions and its changes. It is possible using javascript client object model or REST?

1 Answer 1


First get the list item object and try following:

var id = objListItem.get_item('ID');
var filePath = 'Path to current list/ListName/'+id+'_.000'

var web = objClientCtx.get_web();
var listItemInfo = web.getFileByServerRelativeUrl(filePath)
var listItemFields = listItemInfo.get_listItemAllFields()

Every list item in sharepoint lists is like url and any list item will be represented as path to site collection/Lists/list name/'+id+'_.000. id represents the current list item id

Get reference to individual list item info with the following code snippet web.getFileByServerRelativeUrl(filePath) and execute the code

    function (sender, args) {
        var fileVersions = listItemInfo.get_versions();

get_versions() api will give all the versions of the current list item. Execute the query async again after calling the function get_versions().

get_url() will have the information regarding the version history number of the list item
