Caml query not returning fileleafref

Senior Member

I have a CAML query that I am running through the REST api, the simple example below requests 2 fields - FileLeafRef and CustomField. Custom field is simple a text field, nothing special.

CustomField is returned whereas FileLeafRef is not.

If I run the same CAML via CSOM or the old WCF/soap based services then FileLeafRef is returned...


<View Scope="RecursiveAll">
        <FieldRef Name="FileRef" />
        <Value Type="Text">/SomeSite/SomeDocumentLibrary/SomeFile.txt</Value>
    <FieldRef Name="FileLeafRef" />
    <FieldRef Name="CustomField" />

I know I can use a $select querystring, but this is on an app that the user can specify any number of columns to retrieve and querystrings have a limit.

So is there something I am missing? Or does REST CAML act differently to the other two...

N.b this is against SharePoint Online


I should add this is being called via a post to an endpoint like'listGuid')/getitems
