List threshold Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Techies,

    I have a strange issue regarding threshold value of a list.

    Scenario:-I have created one list having total 20K items,And being a admin a set the throttling value to 2000 for admins.When i log in to the site with read permission still i am able to view all 20000 records. and in list setting page i am getting warning of threshold.

    Also i am able to query using spquery and spdataquery using server object model.

    I verified read only user is not box admin.

    Any help is welcome!!

    Thanks Shekhar.diary

  • The threshold is a maximum number of records that will be returned as a result of a CAML query. It won't render a list with a greater number of items completely unworkable if you are using indexes or I believe paged queries.

    You haven't said what it is set to for normal users.  So if this value is higher than 2000 then your lowered limit for admins probably won't apply.
