To get current master page, make a GET request to following end-point


To change current master page, see here.

function MastePageChange() {
    var clientcontext;
    var cweb;
    var customMasterURL = '/_catalogs/masterpage/NewMasterPage.master';
    clientcontext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    cweb = clientcontext.get_web();
    clientcontext.executeQueryAsync(function() {
        alert("Master Page has been changed successfully \n" + customMasterURL);
    }, function(sender, args) {
        alert("Error: " + args.get_message());

  • The code to change current master page provided on your link is working first time only but on page refresh it gives me an error that "File not found" . Mar 28, 2016 at 6:17
  • Did u include .master with file name. I mean url should look like /_catalogs/masterpage/NewMasterPage.master. See the updated code Mar 28, 2016 at 6:22
  • yes i have changeed it. for the first time the code works fine. but on page refresh it gives an error Mar 28, 2016 at 6:26
  • and cweb.set_customMasterUrl(masterPageUrl); this also gives me an error that masterPageUrl not initialsize so I replace it with customMasterURL Mar 28, 2016 at 6:28
