Microsoft Graph Sites and Lists API - adding new hidden column is visible in default view

Rakesh Kumar 111 Reputation points

We are adding a new hidden columns in the Default Document list using this post. Following is the payload

            "description": "Test column for testing hidden",  
            "displayName": "Test_DCR_3",  
            "hidden": true,  
            "indexed": false,  
            "name": "Test_DCR_3",  
            "required": false,  
            "text": {  

As per the documentation the column should be hidden from the UI but its visible in the default view of the list as shown below.


This looks like an issue in the current implementation of adding column using graph API.

This is a show stopper for us as we don't want to confuse end users with showing hidden columns, if there is a work around to get it working please let us know.

    Hi @Rakesh Kumar ,

    Per my test, I could reproduce your issue on my end. The column is still displayed in the user interface list view. And it is only hidden in the new view and edit view.

    We would help check this issue. If there is any update, I would let you know.
