Provision an External List using feature (BCS)


Eric shared the xml schema to provision an external list using features. I believe everyone will find it useful so sharing it.


           <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8“?>


            <Elements xmlns=http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/>


              <ListInstance Title=title of list


                            OnQuickLaunch=TRUE


                            TemplateType=104


                            FeatureId=SharePointFeatureId


                            Url=lists/Url


                            Description=Description>


                <DataSource>


                  <Property Name=LobSystemInstance Value=LobSystemInstance />


                  <Property Name=EntityNamespace Value=EntityNamespace />


                  <Property Name=Entity Value=EntityName />


                  <Property Name=SpecificFinder Value=SpecificFinder />


                  <Property Name=Finder Value=Finder />


                </DataSource>


              </ListInstance>


            </Elements>
