SharePoint: RegistrationId List Template Type IDs

RegistrationId List Template Type IDs

Updated again and again… (4/28/14)  This time with SharePoint 2013 additions to the list and a PowerShell script to find them.

Updated yet again again! (1/12/10)  This time with SharePoint 2010 additions.

Updated yet again! (1/18/09) When I get a chance I'll add one more column to indicate if the list is user created, "built-in" or hidden.


Below is a list of RegistrationIDs for use with API code and CustomAction Features (for user created list types) and any other list types I have found.

In this article you will find:

  • A table of all of the codes I have found.
  • A C# routine to dump the standard enumeration of SPListTemplateTypes.
  • A PowerShell script to dump the standard enumeration of SPListTemplateTypes.

For more info on CustomAction see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms460194.aspx

For a list of the CustomActions Rights values see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.spbasepermissions.aspx


The Table

“ “ = WSS 3.0, "M" = MOSS 2007 only list type, "E" = MOSS 2007 Enterprise, 2010 = 2010!

0 = list, 1 = library, (4 used for surveys only???)

Fourth column contains notes, names as displayed in SharePoint or in the SQL content database and best guesses ;-)

“not in SPListTemplateType”: Most, but not all of the IDs are in an API enumeration named SPListTemplateType

Note: 100 is used for any custom listed create from Site Actions -> Create -> Custom List. If you created and deployed the custom lists using a SharePoint Feature then the RegistrationID is the same as the list "Type" ID you used in your list's feature manifest file. Here is some more info: http://sharepointinsight.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=33 Please let me know if there are more IDs for this list? For example: 203?


Want to see the IDs used in your site collection?    

Note that direct queries of the SharePoint content databases is never a good practice and my invalidate your support agreements! Try the following only on a test or dev server.

USE WSS_Content (database for your application)     
SELECT tp_Title, tp_BaseType, tp_ServerTemplate, tp_Description     
FROM AllLists     
ORDER BY tp_ServerTemplate, tp_Title


Want to see all of the IDs listed in the API enumerations using C#?

Create a Console Application and set a reference to Microsoft.SharePoint for your version (12, 14, etc).

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
namespace ConsoleApplication1
  class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
      int i = 0;
      foreach (string enumName in Enum.GetNames(typeof(SPListTemplateType)))
        Console.Write(String.Format(": {0,-23} ", enumName));
        Console.Write((int)(Enum.Parse(typeof(SPListTemplateType), enumName)));


Want to see all of the IDs listed in the API enumerations using PowerShell?

PS C:\> $SPtt = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListTemplateType]
PS C:\> [System.Enum]::GetNames($SPtt) |  select {[int][System.Enum]::Parse($SPtt, $_)}, {$_}

Thanks Anders!

However, let's say we have two custom lists derived from "Links list". Then what is registrationID for editing ECB menu item separately for those custom Link lists?

Mike Smith said...


If you are using custom lists created from Site Actions, Create... then I don't know. (but I'm researching it...)

If you created and deployed the custom lists using a SharePoint Feature then the RegistrationID is the same as the list "Type" ID you used in your list's feature manifest file.

Here is some more info:

I found two ID's which aren't in your overview:
1300 - Translation Management Library
1301 - Languages & Translations

You put me on the right track to finding this.

RegID - 7140 - Multiple Project template - Fab 40

Thank you very much :)
Im so happy :)

Would be great to update this for the new 2013 list templates, Mike.

e.g. 170 = Promoted Links

Mike Smith said...


Your request is my command... (don't you wish!)

I wanted to revisit this with PowerShell anyway.


Tripwire said...

Funny you should say that... ;)

$web = Get-SPWeb "http://myweb"
$listtemplates = $web.ListTemplates

$listtemplates |
Sort-Object -Property Type_Client |
Select @{label="Type_Client";Expression={[string]::Format("{0:f0}",$_.Type_Client)}},Type,Name,BaseType,FeatureId |
Out-GridView -Title "SharePoint List Templates"

What's most interesting is that our two PowerShell scripts are both part of the solution, but neither is the complete solution. Mine finds the list or templates from the built-in list of enumerations, or the "standard set". Yours lists all of those available from a single site, which will not include all of the "standard set" but will include any custom templates and templates added from the activation of a feature.


Tripwire said...

Hi Mike, yes. For my purposes that's just what I was after. I needed to identify custom list instances through a web app and use the list as a reference to grab the IDs.

I then wrote a little function that prompts for the webapp URL and template ID and outputs a URL ordered list of each instance.

Pages = 850 is also available at SPS 2013

> Pages = 850 is also available at SPS 2013

Yes it is, and should add a note to the codes to say that the M, 2010, etc. was where this was introduced to SharePoint.
