Been hitting my head and have no idea what I am doing wrong. I have couple columns in a list and I want to update the Column field by choosing the ID field. Below is the URL that I generate but throws a 400 bad request error.


Here you can see I am trying to filter the list with ID = 19852. Another thing I would like to point is that I created another test list on SP and tested the code that got from here and it somehow works.. I have no idea what I am doing wrong.. If you'd like I can paste the whole API call below..

Any suggestions would really be helpful.

Try using this below endpoints:

/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Resourcing Entries')/items?$select=ID&$filter=ID eq 19852

Note: You need to use the Display Name of the list (Name you see on list view page).

Or you can directly get the list item if you are getting the item using SharePoint OOTB ID column like:

/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Resourcing Entries')/items(19852)
