I am trying to fetch items of a particular view using JSOM using below code:

ListDataService.getItemsByCamlQueryUsingCSOM = function (listName, camlQuery, viewfields) {
        var deferred = $.Deferred();
        var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
        var web = context.get_web();
        var list = web.get_lists().getByTitle(listName);
        var query = new SP.CamlQuery();
        var items = list.getItems(query);

        var index = viewfields.indexOf("LinkTitle");
        if (index !== -1) {
            viewfields[index] = "Title";
        context.load(items, "Include(" + viewfields.join() + ")");
        context.executeQueryAsync(function () {
        }, function (sender, args) {
        return deferred.promise();

I get a strange behaviour that if my viewfields has any Managed metadata field, the executeQueryAsync is mostly failing with below error "Value does not fall within the expected range"

My viewfields has only 3 or 4 fields and I tried to hard code only the Managed metadata field in the Include statement and still it threw the same error.

Configuration of my site:

  1. List is having 30+ columns
  2. Listview Look up threshold is 8 for the web application.
  3. Site Regional setting has Local set to English(South Africa) (PS: Setting it to English(US) did not make any difference.)

Update: Got this issue fixed by adding the viewfields in caml instead of Include .

  • Same behavior if you specify the viewfields in the caml instead of Include? Aug 9, 2016 at 13:46
  • @AndersAune Thanks for your suggestion it works always when I add it as ViewFields in caml. Strange but works for now. Please write it as answer so that I can upvote and mark it as answer. :-)

The hidden fields connected to the managed metadata fields could be the culprit. If you have a look at Vadims answer in this question he says:

The main difference that ViewFields query option also includes system columns.

So try using <ViewFields /> in the CamlQuery instead of Include
