Simple question: is the batch request in the SharePoint 2016 REST API asynchronous or synchronous (for clarification: the multiple requests inside one batch are handled one after one [synchronous] or all at once [asynchronous])?

I could not find anything about this topic...

    I would guess that they are synchronous as the order of batched operations is often important. For example, create an order header and then order details. Some info here: andrewconnell.com/blog/… and andrewconnell.com/blog/… Jun 26, 2018 at 18:47
  • This is also my guess but a guess is only a guess and do not provide sufficient basis for definite conclusions ;-)

  • I can't find anything that suggests otherwise. Maybe run some tests with a batch that creates an item and deletes the same item and run it many times to see if it ever fails. Jun 27, 2018 at 14:22
