I am trying to create a list in Share-point using Python Rest API. I have used the same kind of payload as mentioned in Documentation too. But the issue is I am dealing with crores of row and when I am trying to create list it mostly uploads till 750 rows and discard other and states Bad request or syntax. We are already using batch request upload (REF: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/make-batch-requests-with-the-rest-apis)"learn.microsoft.com") but this seems very slow and takes only 750 requests at a time.

Do we have any option to upload bulk data in Sharepoint lists?

    Hi @Mayank Agrawal

    Per my research, we have a throttling in SharePoint Online. When usage limits are exceeded, SharePoint Online throttles any further requests from that client for a short period. You can refer to the following document
