Using GetListItems on BCS

May 23, 2013 at 3:39 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).

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.
