    So I wanted to add a bunch of menu items that were just a filtered list of site contents to my custom menu.

    The issue is that /_api/lists/ doesn't give you a default view url for each list. I initially made the onclick action hit the lists /DefaultView/ call to get the default URL. I have thought about making this happen asynchronously as the page is loading and on call back update the a tag's href value.

    I feel like there has got to be a better way to pull a list of lists and just get title and default view url. Which is all I really need.

    Here is my code

    $.ajax({ url: _spPageContextInfo.webServerRelativeUrl + '/_api/lists/', type: 'GET', header: {'Accept': 'application/json;odata=verbose'}, dataType: "json", success: function(data) { //adds UL/LI elements to my menu var a = document.createElement("a"); a.onclick = function(){navigateToDefaultView(value.Id,value.ParentWebUrl);}; div.appendChild(a); //yada yada } }) function navigateToDefaultView(guid,root){ $.ajax({ url: root + "/_api/lists(guid'" + guid + "')/DefaultView/", type: 'GET', header: {'Accept': 'application/json;odata=verbose'}, dataType: "json", success: function(data) { window.location = data.ServerRelativeUrl; } }); }
