ContentTypeID of external lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    If I create a content type through Visual Studio I can tell it what its ContentTypeID is and then deploy it.  I can then create and deploy a list based on that content type.

    If I deploy entities in a BDC model, those become a content type, right?  Is there a way to tell the model what those entities should have for a ContentTypeID?  Or is there another (deployable) way to create a list from a BDC entity?

    Thank you!

  • List Template ID for External List is 600. So if you are looking to work against external list, may be add a settings page or manipulating the ribbon, you can use this List Template ID.

    The External Content Types are deployed to your farm and are accessible via the BDC Service. You can query them using the BDC Admin Object Model
