delete all items list sharepoint online jsom

In this post we will discuss how we can delete all items from a list using JavaScript object model in SharePoint Online Office 365. The same code will also work for SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint 2013 also.

Here in the CAML query we are passing the RowLimit as 100, you can provider as per the requirement.

The below code we are putting inside a script editor web part which we have put inside a web part page.

<input type=”button” id=”btnSubmit” value=”Delete All Items” /><br/>

<script src=””></script>
$(function () {
function bindButtonClick() {
$(“#btnSubmit”).on(“click”, function () {

var clientContext;
var website;
var oList;
var cnt = 0;

function deleteAllItemsFromList() {
clientContext = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
website = clientContext.get_web();
oList = website.get_lists().getByTitle(‘SourceList’);

var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
this.collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);

clientContext.load(collListItem, ‘Include(Id)’);
clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));

function onQuerySucceeded(sender, args) {

var listItemInfo = ”;
var listItemEnumerator = collListItem.getEnumerator();

while (listItemEnumerator.moveNext()) {
var oListItem = listItemEnumerator.get_current();
var ID = oListItem.get_id();
var oListItemDel = oList.getItemById(ID);
clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onDeleteSucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onDeleteFailed));

function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {

function onDeleteFailed(sender, args) {

function onDeleteSucceeded(sender, args) {
cnt = cnt + 1;
alert(‘Delete success : ‘ + cnt);


Once you will save the code and click on the button to delete, it will display an alert on each item delete like below:
