I am Insert Data in Sharepoint list using REST API.

Its inserted Successfully but I want in Response that inserted Record ID.

Is there any way to get it.?

I don't want to call request again.

Any Help greatly Appreciated.

  • You could do a Caml-Query with rowlimit 1 and sort by id descending. The result is the last created element. – Mx. Jul 29 '16 at 13:37

Whenever you are creating Item using REST API it will give you a JSON response in returned. If you parse your JSON using JSON Parser you can see all the details regarding created item is visible. So you can parse JSON response and get whatever you want. See attached snap.

Yes It returns a ID and also Id in the response. You can access like

// OR

yourResponse.d is the item you have just inserted.

ID and Id both are the same thing.
