I have a photo list in sharepoint. When the individual items are viewed I make a rest api call and find the title and number of likes for that individual item.


Now how can I get the status of Like(ie like/unlike) using the api query?

I could not find any column name in the list which stores the status of like for that particular user

There is column named LikedBy which stores the users who have liked this item.

LikedBy is lookup column (People or Group). So you have to $expand this column in your query like following

  • 1
    Did you enable Rating Setting? Nov 17, 2015 at 5:35
  • yeah its working :) Nov 17, 2015 at 5:37
  • in the result json, likedby is an object and not an array. Not sure how to fetch values from them Nov 17, 2015 at 5:39
  • I have just tested it. It's array of objects. log result in console and try again Nov 17, 2015 at 5:41
  • Thanks. If I want to get both ID and Title of likedBy should i used LikedBy/Title,LikedBy/ID&$expand=LikedBy ? Nov 17, 2015 at 5:44
