Is it possible to apply audience targeting to the list items in Sharepoint 2013 Sharepoint-Hosted add-in while retrieving those items using JSOM or REST API without explicitly filtering out.

I couldn't find any reference regarding this, can some someone clarify regarding this.

1 Answer 1


For now audience targeting is not supported for CSOM or REST.

There is a corresponding uservoice. You can vote for it, may be we can speed up MS a bit for implementation :)

  • That uservoice was posted in 2014, but still has very few votes. :(

  • Is there any way/tricks/hacks to use the same functionality in Apps

  • Only workaround via permissions, for example. Nov 21, 2016 at 7:48
  • This answer says that we can still do CAML query based on target audience. Is this really possible. I tried but no luck.
