I have a SharePoint list and I need to get all items from that list without using CAML Query in JSOM.

How can I do this?

  • If you really want to avoid using CAML, check this old post on using Search from JSOM. But honestly, calling getItems on the list with a nearly empty CAML is far easier: <Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='ID' /></OrderBy></Query>

  • Also you can use REST calls to retrieve data

Try using your code something like below:

var oListItems;

function GetAllListItems() {
    // You can optionally specify the Site URL here to get the context
    // If you don't specify the URL, the method will get the context of the current site
    // var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext("http://MyServer/sites/SiteCollection");
    clientContext = new SP.ClientContext();

    var oWeb = clientContext.get_web();

    // Specify list title here
    var oList = oWeb.get_lists().getByTitle("List Name");

    // Get all list items from the list
    // This method will get all the items from all the folders and sub folders including folders and sub folders too
    oListItems = oList.getItems(SP.CamlQuery.createAllItemsQuery());

    // Load list items to Client Context

    // Execute the query to the server.
    clientContext.executeQueryAsync(onsuccess, onfailed);

function onsuccess() {

    // Iterate through Enumerator
    var oEnumerator = oListItems.getEnumerator();

    while (oEnumerator.moveNext()) {
        // get_item("ColumnName")
        var oListItem = oEnumerator.get_current().get_item('Title');
        console.log("Name : " + oListItem);

function onfailed(sender, args) {
    console.log('Failed' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
