I have a custom SharePoint field, that inherits from SPFieldMultiColumn (always a SPFieldMultiColumt(2)).

When I add this field to a SharePoint list it works good. But I can't see that field in the listdata.svc service.

Is there some additional config needed or are custom Field Types not suppoerted in ListData.svc?


Not all fields are returned by listdata.svc. Take for example fields that are publishing related like Page Content. In your case it might be that the SPMultiColumn field is a non sortable field in SQL database meaning that derived types are not sortable as well. Have a look at my post about missing fields from Listdata at Push or pull pages from SP2010 using listdata.svc

  • Thanx. I guess it's either CMIS or back to managed client object model :) – Gomiunik Jun 8 '11 at 5:58
  • As far as I have discovered CMIS does not support publishing at this moment. ;-) – Serve Hermans Jun 13 '11 at 18:28
  • I have a similar issue. I have a field created from a custom field type. The custom field type is based on SPFieldLookup. That field is not shown in the ListData.svc. Is there a way to fix this or is it not supported. – user5391 Oct 25 '11 at 19:44
  • @Sarath Unfortunately not. Client Object Model would be better way to go. – Gomiunik Mar 7 '12 at 6:42
