When creating lists in SharePoint, do you have to enable the REST service feature per list or something similar?

I have one SharePoint list that returns data fine using REST, the URI is loosely as follows:


and I've copied over this data to a new list in the same area with the same data, however I gave it a new name (this is for testing purposes), but it will not return any data using the same basic REST call:


They are almost completely identical, but one refuses to return data, is there something I didn't know to enable when creating the list?

  • What is the title of the second list? Is it UsersTest or something else. Note that title can be different from Url. May 9, 2014 at 14:22
  • This is in fact the name of the list, all I did was add Test to it May 9, 2014 at 14:30

If you navigate to the service root you'll see all the lists that are exposed by the service.


  • It's there: - <collection href="UsersTest"> <atom:title>UsersTest</atom:title> </collection> May 9, 2014 at 15:12

try to create a list without test on the name. Seems the web service does not like the word "test" . Probably some security reason.
