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>
