SharePoint Lead Interview Questions and Answers

Q1: How to configure error handling in MS Flow in SharePoint

Ans: Microsoft has already provided a powerful feature to handle the exception in Microsoft flow. Please go through the below link to know more about error handling in Power Automate.

Q2: I have a List called Employee List and List having two fields called Employee Name and Employee Department. And Employee Name is a Text field and Employee Department is Chose Field.

I have added three Department in the Option called IT, HR and Fiance.

Suppose I have a list Item – Employee Name: Rajkiran and Department Name: IT

Next, I am going to Option and Remove the IT from my option column, so does this IT files will get deleted from Item which I added?

Ans: When we delete the item from the checkbox option, it will not delete from List items where the deleted option value gets associated. But when we modify that item, it will automatically remove from that item and we have to choose a different choice value.

Q3: I have a two list called Employee List and Department List. In Department List, I have a field called Department Name and I have a lookup column in the Employee List. So My question is If I remove any item in Department List, Does it delete from the Employee list or it will not impact anything

Ans: If we delete the item from the Employee list, obviously it will remove from the associated lookup list.

Q4: How many Items we can fetch at a single call in REST API in SharePoint?

Ans: When doing a GET call to a Rest API from JavaScript “/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle(‘ListName’)/items” the results returned are limited to 100 rows.

So we can fetch the record till 5000 due to the list threshold in SharePoint online.


Q5: Is it possible to add 20 filters in a single REST API call in SharePoint?

Ans: Sometimes I can say No due to the length of the URL. The default GET request URL length is 260. It can be modified in on-premise but Online is not possible. Follow this link to modify this default value in On-Premise.

If your GET request URL length exceeds for getting items from a list, then you can solve it using CAML query and POST request.

Q6: How can I add lookup column in REST API in SharePoint?


Below is an example, how to add a lookup column in SharePoint Online using Rest API.

    "Title": 'lookup Taks',
    'AssignedToId': {"results": [18] }  //You can add multi-valued User field value 

    url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('" + listName + "')/items",
    type: "POST",
    contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",
    data: JSON.stringify(itemProperties),
    headers: {
        "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
    success: function (data) {
    error: function (data) {

Q7: What is Branching and Merging in TFS?

Ans: Branching in Team Foundation Server means creating a project for a new branch and copying all the content from the initial project to a new one, we’ll cover the process of linking a database to a project (Team Foundation Server project) that will be treated as the main branch.

Merging changes from two branches and verify that everything is merged successfully by comparing a database with branches that were previously merged.
