SharePoint Online Example - Update list item


The ZappySys API Driver is a user-friendly interface designed to facilitate the seamless integration of various applications with the SharePoint Online API. With its intuitive design and robust functionality, the ZappySys API Driver simplifies the process of configuring specific API endpoints to efficiently read or write data from SharePoint Online.

Following examples shows how to Update list item from SharePoint Online using ZappySys API Driver. You can explore additional examples for the Azure DevOps Connector here.

UPDATE update_list_item
SET Title = 'My super title', OrderId = 12345
WITH (ListId='14bdfd1d-1090-4cfe-adc1-XXXXXXXXXXXXX'
     ,ListItemId='775'
     ,Output=1)
--You can get ListId by selecting from 'list_lists' endpoint.
--ListItemId can be retrieved by selecting from 'get_list_items' endpoint.

Microsoft SQL Server OPENQUERY Query - SharePoint Online Example

Following examples shows how to Update list item in Microsoft SQL Server using OPENQUERY Query. This command facilitates the execution of pass-through queries on remote servers. Below example is demonstrating the usage of OPENQUERY.

SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY([MY_LINKED_SERVER_NAME], 
'UPDATE update_list_item
SET Title = ''My super title'', OrderId = 12345
WITH (ListId=''14bdfd1d-1090-4cfe-adc1-XXXXXXXXXXXXX''
     ,ListItemId=''775''
     ,Output=1)
--You can get ListId by selecting from ''list_lists'' endpoint.
--ListItemId can be retrieved by selecting from ''get_list_items'' endpoint.');

Microsoft SQL Server EXEC Query - SharePoint Online Example (Handling larger SQL text)

The major drawback of OPENQUERY is its inability to incorporate variables within SQL statements, which often leads to the use of cumbersome dynamic SQL (with numerous ticks and escape characters).
Fortunately, there is a solution. Starting with SQL 2005 and onwards, you can utilize the EXEC (your_sql) AT your_linked_server syntax. Following examples shows how to Update list item in Microsoft SQL Server using EXEC Query.

DECLARE @MyQyery NVARCHAR(MAX) = 'UPDATE update_list_item
SET Title = ''My super title'', OrderId = 12345
WITH (ListId=''14bdfd1d-1090-4cfe-adc1-XXXXXXXXXXXXX''
     ,ListItemId=''775''
     ,Output=1)
--You can get ListId by selecting from ''list_lists'' endpoint.
--ListItemId can be retrieved by selecting from ''get_list_items'' endpoint.';

EXE (@MyQyery) AT [MY_LINKED_SERVER_NAME];
