Using GetListItems on BCS

May 23, 2013 at 2:39 PM
Hey Marc/everyone,

Does SPServices work with BCS? When I use GetListItems on a regular list it works, but the moment I switch to a BCS list I get nothing.

I know SharePoint treats external lists differently, so if SPServices is not the right tool for this I would also appreciate some direction.

There's quite a bit of discussion about this here. In particular, look at this thread:

Thanks Marc. So it seems GetListItems at least works with Web Services (SOAP). I managed to find the error in my code. Kudos!

Could you share your working code? I have struggled with this for awhile now so anything you can share would be appreciated.

Anyone? The code I have works for normal lists but when used against an external list no items are returned. I have seen many options online for the CSOM stuff but nothing using SOAP (GetListItems).

G.:

This is an old thread, so you're unlikely to get an answer. Are you getting an error from your call or a valid response with no items?

Thanks Marc. I saw this was an old thread but I can't find anything else. I am getting a valid response but items are never returned for SharePoint 2010.
