You can retrieve your list items by using the following Search REST API Query in case you have used the same content type in the all Action Lists :


You can get your content type using the following steps :

  1. Go to https://site.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/mngctype.aspx
  2. Locate the content type of the list
  3. Click on it then in the URL you will find e.g : ctype=0x01007CE30DD1206047728BAFD1C39A850120

Note : I removed the last 0 from the content type and added a * instead

  • Thanks for your help! But if I have same name lists across the subsites which is custom list and their content type is different then what can I do? I want all list items by the list Name not by its content type!

    You can use contentclass=STS_List Action instead, for more details please go to the following link : blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mvpawardprogram/2015/02/16/… Commented Mar 26, 2018 at 8:34
