Since from yesterday 19th September 2019, Simple Rest URL Select=* is not working.

Note: list is having 12 person or group/lookup column excluding created by & modified by.

However it was working fine before.


The query cannot be completed because the number of lookup column it contains exceeds the lookup column threshold enforced by administrator.

Anyone has any idea about this?


  • @Tally also facing the same error as mentioned - here. Maybe because of any updates by microsoft. – Ganesh Sanap Sep 20 '19 at 11:10
  • Indeed, I have the same issue, yesterday it was still working (I'm in the UK, so GMT). – Tally Sep 20 '19 at 11:10
  • Yep has the same issue, briefly, then it went back to expected. Must have been an update that was then rolled back – sasfrog Sep 23 '19 at 8:48
