I am attempting to add a Query String Filter Url Web Part to a page programmatically with JSOM and am hitting a dead end.

I see how you can add a web part if you already have the XML like in this guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/developer/sharepoint-2010/hh185010(v%3Doffice.14)

But how can I get the XML for other OOTB web parts? Thank you so much.

We can go to Web Part Gallery(/_catalogs/wp/Forms/AllItems.aspx), find the web part and click "Edit" and click "View Xml" in the ribbon to get the Xml of the web part.

enter image description here

The xml of the query string web part as following.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <webPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v3">
      <type name="Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.QueryStringFilterWebPart,Microsoft.Office.Server.FilterControls,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" />
        <property name="FilterName" type="string">$Resources:spscore,DwpQueryStringFilterName</property>
        <property name="Title" type="string">$Resources:spscore,DwpQueryStringFilterTitle</property>
        <property name="Description" type="string">$Resources:spscore,DwpQueryStringFilterDescription</property>
        <property name="ChromeType">None</property>
        <property name="CatalogIconImageUrl" type="string">/_layouts/images/wp_Filter.gif</property>
        <property name="TitleIconImageUrl" type="string">/_layouts/images/wp_Filter.gif</property>
  • I appreciate that, but I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to do that with the JSOM or CSOM api Commented Jan 23, 2020 at 18:31
