I tried to create a survey list using JSOM

function listCreation () {

    var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
    var oWebsite = clientContext.get_web();

    var listCreationInfo = new SP.ListCreationInformation();
    listCreationInfo.set_title('Test'); // list name
    listCreationInfo.set_description('description'); // list description
    listCreationInfo.set_templateType(SP.ListTemplateType.Survey); //list type


        Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded),// when success
        Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed) // when failed

function onQuerySucceeded() {
    alert("List Created");

function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
    alert("List Failed");

while executing the function it throws an error msg Uncaught Error: Sys.ArgumentUndefinedException: Value cannot be undefined. in clientContext.executeQueryAsync line. Please help me to solve this issue.

  • Try with survey instead of Survey – Gautam Sheth May 12 '17 at 8:14
  • @GautamSheth Thanks, I tried both but still it's throwing an same error – Debugger May 12 '17 at 8:20

Following code is working for me for creating survey list, and it is 'SP.ListTemplateType.survey'

        function CreateCustomList() {
            clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
            oWeb = clientContext.get_web();
            listCreationInfo = new SP.ListCreationInformation();
            listCreationInfo.set_title('Test Custom List Survey');
            oList = oWeb.get_lists().add(listCreationInfo);
            clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));
        function onQuerySucceeded() {
            alert(oList.get_title() + ' created successfully.');
        function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
            alert('Request failed. ' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
