I am trying to access Document Libraries and List Libraries(Custom) through CMIS service in SharePoint. I am able to access all document libraries but I am not able to access List Libraries.

Workbench and Postman(where I am testing the connectivity) is showing List with given name not found!

This my first time working with CMIS service I am certainly confused where would have gone wrong.

Accessing URLs: http://site-site/_vti_bin/cmis/rest/d97c88ca-db12-481a-b8e2-87c9f351044f?getRepositoryInfo

Any Idea why?

  • Would you mind posting a screenshot? Thanks :-) Mar 11 '19 at 1:50
  • Also, when you sniff network traffic with Wireshark (or equivalent), do you see the correct information coming out of SharePoint? Mar 11 '19 at 1:56
  • You wrote "but List Libraries". You mean "but NOT List Libraries", right? Mar 11 '19 at 1:56
  • Hi Nic! yes Im not able to get list libraries.

SharePoint does not support Lists Libraries with CMIS.



The document library is the only supported as a CMIS Repository in SharePoint.

  • Hi Mohamed, Thank you for your reply. yes I am using correct GUID. Even I called getrepositories It is only listing down Site Assets, Documents and Images not My Custom List which is already exists. Is this the behavior?
