I have a Pages Library which has a Managed Metadata Column called Category. I am using REST API to query this list.

I need to get the top 13 items and implement "Next" paging.

When I am accessing the API using GET I get the __next metadata in the result set.


The issue here is that I need the label of the managed metadata and have no choice but to use getItems()


With caml query = ViewXml = "<View><Query></Query></View>" just to returns all items.

On both queries, the $top works however in the getItems() I do not have __next. I am accessing SharePoint Online and making the call using spHttpClient from SharePoint Framework to retrieve the RequestDigest.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • If thelibrary doesn't have an insane amount. It might be easier and even faster to get All Items with minimum (nometadata) metadata upfront, filter them and built a paged UX, and then fill in the missing metadata with more async calls. When a page loads a user doesn't interact with it in the first milsecs, users are slow..it might take 2 seconds for them to take in the page and interact with it. So things like onclick handlers and DIV data-attributes for filters are not required on first render. Same goes for images, everyone is used to images being loaded async.

  • Seems like a bug to me. Even <View><RowLimit>6</RowLimit><Query></Query></View> does not provide any information on paging in the response. – Fergal May 11 '17 at 9:08
