Create Site Content Type in SharePoint using REST API

The example in this topic show how to use REST API to Create Site Content Type in SharePoint
  • REST-API is based on OData (Open Data) Protocol and hence it doesn't require any dll or JS library to run the commands on the SharePoint objects.
  • REST-API calls require proper end-point URL and proper Header implementation in your REST call.

How to use SharePoint REST API?

  • Note: This is just a sample, you can go ahead with your implementation.
  • You can also use this method in your SPFx Component.
  • Open your Site. Create a webpart page.
  • Put a Content Editor Web part and a Script Editor Web part on it.
  • Webpart page content editor and scipt editor
  • I have added below Html in Content Editor webpart. You can replace MainFunction with your actual method name.

    <button onclick="MainFunction();" type="button">Click me​</button>

  • And below references in Script Editor Webpart. ScriptFile.js is a JavaScript file where you can keep below function i.e. your actual logic.

    <script src="https://MyServer/sites/SiteCollection/style library/js/ScriptFile.js"></script>

  • Once you are done with setting your page, click on the button and your method should get executed.

  • function CreateSiteContentType()
  • {
  •        $.ajax
  •         ({
  •             // _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl - will give absolute URL of the site where you are running the code.
  •             // You can replace this with other site URL where you want to apply the function
  •             url:  _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/contenttypes",
  •             type: "POST",
  •             data: JSON.stringify({
  •                              '__metadata': {
  •                                  // Type that you are modifying.
  •                                  'type': 'SP.ContentType'
  •                              },                        
  •                              'Name': 'New Content Type',
  •                              'Description': 'New Content Type Description',
  •                              'Group': 'Custom Content Type Group'
  •                          }),  
  •              headers: {
  •                "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
  •                "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
  •                "X-RequestDigest" : $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
  •                },
  •              success: function (data, status, xhr) {
  •                      console.log("Success");
  •                      },
  •              error: function (xhr, status, error) {
  •                     console.log("Failed");
  •                }
  •         });       
  • }
