When using SharePoint CSOM API to create lists, users sometimes like to make their lists hidden. But as much as that may be a nifty tool for use, when it comes to searching and trying to find data from within the list, you are faced with a problem. In SharePoint UI, users have reported to have faced an issue searching for data within a hidden list. So how do you fix this issue:

Can’t search file in SharePoint Hidden List

  1. Basically hiding a list is for the sole purpose of obscuring it from certain users. So if you hide it and still wish to find data from within it, then other users will be able to do the same.
  2. In order for a list to be hidden as well as searchable a good amount of security is needed to be applied on it.
