I have created the list called "dept info" in SharePoint 2013. And I have tried the API call to insert the item into list.but the list name contains the spance.if without space the other list items are inserted .with space is not working. the API code is,

SupportInfoListName="Dept%20Info";
        var itemType = GetItemTypeForListName("Dept%20Info");
        var item = {
            "__metadata": { "type": itemType },
            "Title": "56464*/**"
            };

        $.ajax({
            url:"siteirl/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('Dept Info')/items","
            type: "POST",
            contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",
            data: JSON.stringify(item),
            headers: {
                "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
                "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
            },
            success: function (data) {
                alert("success");
            },
            error: function (data) {
                alert(data);
            }
        });

        // Get List Item Type metadata
        function GetItemTypeForListName(name) {
console.log(name);
            return "SP.Data." + name.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + name.split(" ").join("").slice(1) + "ListItem";
        }

Suggest an idea to insert an item using API into list.

Please check your metadata value in JSON object. You need to replace space in list name with special character "x0020". Please try with this for example if your ListName is "Test Data" then your metadata value "SP.Data.Test_x0020_DataListItem".

  • Thanks . I made a mistake in metadata value in JSON object.Got it now. – PGP Jan 11 '17 at 5:59

Can you try to replace this line

var itemType = GetItemTypeForListName("Dept%20Info");

with

var itemType = GetItemTypeForListName("Dept Info");
  • ya, I tried .but it's not working. – PGP Jan 11 '17 at 5:48

You need to enter the list title in the GetItemTypeForListName parameter

Try as below:

    SupportInfoListName="Dept Info";
            var itemType = GetItemTypeForListName("Dept Info");
            var item = {
                "__metadata": { "type": itemType },
                "Title": "56464*/**"
                };

            $.ajax({
                url:"siteirl/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('Dept Info')/items","
                type: "POST",
                contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",
                data: JSON.stringify(item),
                headers: {
                    "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
                    "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
                },
                success: function (data) {
                    alert("success");
                },
                error: function (data) {
                    alert(data);
                }
            });

            // Get List Item Type metadata
            function GetItemTypeForListName(name) {
    console.log(name);
                return "SP.Data." + name.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + name.split(" ").join("").slice(1) + "ListItem";
            }

Looks like something is wrong with listitementityname. Try below code:

var listTitle = "Dept Info"

function executeJson(options) 
{
    var headers = options.headers || {};
    headers["Accept"] = "application/json;odata=verbose";
    if(options.method == "POST") {
        headers["X-RequestDigest"] = $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val();
    }   

    var ajaxOptions = 
    {       
       url: options.url,   
       type: options.method,  
       contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",
       headers: headers
    };
    if(options.method == "POST") {
      ajaxOptions.data = JSON.stringify(options.payload);
    }  

    return $.ajax(ajaxOptions);
}


function getItemTypeForListName(listTitle)
{
  return executeJson({
    url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('" + listTitle + "')/?$select=ListItemEntityTypeFullName",
    method: 'GET'
  }).then(function(data){
       return data.d.ListItemEntityTypeFullName;
  });  
}

getItemTypeForListName(listTitle)
.done(function(name){
   console.log(name);

   var item = {
                "__metadata": { "type": name },
                "Title": "56464*/**"
            };

    $.ajax({
            url:"siteurl/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('"+ listTitle +"')/items","
            type: "POST",
            contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",
            data: JSON.stringify(item),
            headers: {
                "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
                "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
            },
            success: function (data) {
                console.log("success");
            },
            error: function (data) {
                console.log(data);
            }
        });

})
.fail(function(error){
  console.log(JSON.stringify(error));
});
  • it shows the "404 (Not Found)" in URL. but copy paste the URL value in browser I can view the items. – PGP Jan 11 '17 at 5:51
