I am accessing couple of forms libraries and lists from SharePoint sites using the ReST API at _vti_bin/listdata.svc. I can use filters like $Select, $Expand etc and it works fine.

However few of these lists do contain columns from managed metadata term store. I can see the values in the view when I login to the site. But I do not get those columns in the data retrieved using the API.

Can someone help me to understand how I may get the data?

According to a few articles, not all types of columns are available/supported via REST in SharePoint 2010, including managed metadata columns.

Not Supported

  • Managed Metadata
  • Managed Metadata (Multi)
  • Publishing HTML
  • Publishing Hyperlink
  • Publishing Image
  • Media Field
  • Summary Links
  • Publishing Image
