I'm having difficulty explaining my question, mainly based on the reason for the question itself. So the whole issue is a circular mess in my head. I really have a slew of questions.
- Please confirm that there are in fact two separate REST APIs for SharePoint?
First (SEARCH REST API): https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj163876.aspx
Second (LIST REST API): https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj860569.aspx
If I'm correct, are those the proper names of both APIs?
Are they both active, or is one a deprecated API?
What is the practical difference between the two?
