I tried to use Rest API to get list items in Office 365, the list has 3 items in total.

When I visit the below URL:

http://sitename/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('List Name')/

It shows list information, but in the item count it has 0. These 3 items are there in the list for more than a week now. Rest API is working fine for other list items in the same site.

To get the list items using REST API you need to use the URL like below:

http://sitename/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('List Name')/items

To get the List Item Count using REST API you need to use:

http://sitename/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('List Name')?$select=ItemCount
