sharepoint 2013 REST calls RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking to create a file on sharepoint server from remote client machine by performing rest call using javascript.  I used the following code.  Seemingly, this should work.  But I am getting Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'majorVersion' of undefined.  It refers to sp.js library.

    <!DOCTYPE html>

      <title>Office Web Objects Test</title>

    <script src="https://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://docs/_layouts/15/sp.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://docs/_layouts/15/sp.runtime.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://docs/_layouts/15/sp.requestexecutor.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <input id="getFile" type="file"/><br />
    <input id="displayName" type="text" value="Enter a unique name" /><br />
    <input id="addFileButton" type="button" value="Upload" onclick="uploadFile()"/>

    function uploadFile() {
      var executor = new SP.RequestExecutor(appweburl);
      var body = "";
      for (var i = 0; i < 1000; i++) {
        var ch = i % 256;
        body = body + String.fromCharCode(ch);
      var info = {
        url: "_api/web/lists/getByTitle('Documents')/Add(url='a.dat', overwrite=true)",
        method: "POST",
        binaryStringRequestBody: true,
        body: body,
        success: success,
        error: fail,
        state: "Update"};

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that when you upload documents to document library using Rest API, it throws the error "Cannot read property 'majorVersion' of undefined".

    As the "majorVersion" is existed in the SP.File Object within SP.js file, for a better troubleshooting, I suggest you can debug with Internet Explorer Tool to check if the SP.js has loaded correctly.

    Here is a detailed code demo for your reference:
