Get Form Digest Value in SharePoint using REST API

The example in this topic show how to use REST API to Get Form Digest Value 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 GetFormDigestValue()
  • {
  •        // _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
  •       
  •        $.ajax 
  •     ({   
  •         url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/contextinfo",   
  •         type: "POST",   
  •         async: false,   
  •         headers: { "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose" },   
  •         success: function(data){   
  •             var FormDigestValue = data.d.GetContextWebInformation.FormDigestValue; 
  •             console.log(FormDigestValue);            
  •         },   
  •         error: function (xhr, status, error)
  •         {
  •               console.log("Failed");
  •         }  
  •     });
  • }
