I cannot seem to find any documentation on this topic. Are there any limitations for what I can or cannot do with the JavaScript CSOM in SharePoint Server Standard 2010 External Lists as compared to regular lists? I know that I can read data, but is full CRUD supported? Are there any limitations I need to worry about?


One of the limitations I have encountered is that if you query the external list you need to specify all fields in the ViewFields collection, otherwise you will get the following error: "The given key was not present in the dictionary'. I have blogged about it here:

SharePoint: The given key was not present in the dictionary..
