Add support to create list / document library based on custom template to REST API
If I save list as template I cannot use this template to create new list via REST API because it does not accept template name as input parameter: This is possible in CSOM by passing ListTemplate parameter (https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/255947/creating-a-document-library-from-custom-template-with-folder-structure-inside-us)
In REST it is possible just to pass ListTemplateTypeKind as BaseTemplate parameter and there is no parameter for custom template name so it is not possible to create new list/library based on custom template (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-lists-and-list-items-with-rest)
Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now.
We are looking into enabling this scenario with modern list templates and Microsoft Graph, but are not planning to expose this in CSOM or in REST APIs… and with old classic list templates.
