Is there any rest API available to get the recent updates or news related to a site in SharePoint Online?

How To Read The SharePoint News Using Rest API In SPFx

I have found above post but it does not work for me as hitting the API's only gives error or irrelevant XML data.

So, I wanted to know if there is any way to get the news of SharePoint site using rest API ?



_api/search/query?querytext='IsDocument:True AND FileExtension:aspx AND PromotedState:2


enter image description here

  • Can you please post the api url you are using and also please update post with the error you are seeing for better understanding. Oct 22, 2019 at 16:28
  • You need to make sure that you are setting the header to use odata v3, more info here; c-sharpcorner.com/article/… Aug 3, 2021 at 0:51

It looks like you are missing the ending single quote. Update the API call to:

_api/search/query?querytext='IsDocument:True AND FileExtension:aspx AND PromotedState:2'

Furthermore, you'll need to encode this to use it. Change your spaces to %20 and your single quotes to %27 like this:
