I have make one web part in spfx, I am able to fetch values of all columns of sharepoint list except one which is of type person or group, In this column there are multiple names I want to fetch all names of that particular column, how can I do this? In my webpart under that column it is showing UNDEFINED.


You need to use $expand to get additional details from the People field.

Assuming that you need details of Author field, modify your endpoint as below:


So, in your method it will be used as :

var endPointUrl = `${this.context.pageContext.web.absoluteUrl}/_api/lists/GetByTitle('Test')/items?$select=Title,ID,Author/Title,Author/Department,Author/EMail&$expand=Author`;

      .then((response: SPHttpClientResponse) => {  
        response.json().then((responseJSON: any) => {  

Reference -

Get details from Person or Group fields
