SharePoint 2013 No item exists at URL. It may have been deleted or renamed by another user

This SharePoint tutorial, we will learn how to fix the error, No item exists at URL. It may have been deleted or renamed by another user.

Recently I was trying to access a web part page in SharePoint online with a query string parameter. But when we enter to open the page it gave an error saying: Sorry, something went wrong. No item exists at https://url. It may have been deleted or renamed by another user. The error looks like below.

I just created a web part page in SharePoint online and when I open the page it opened correctly. But if I added a query string parameter like ID=5, it throws the error.

Here in this screenshot, it is clearly telling that “No item exists at that URL where ID=5”. So the solution of this problem is given below-

No item exists at URL. It may have been deleted or renamed by another user

We can not use “ID” in the query string in SharePoint because the “ID” is already reserved Query String Parameter in the SharePoint Site.  So we have to take another parameter name, here I have modified the “ID” to “MyID”. After changing the ID to MyID, I can access the URL.

So we can not use the reserved keywords for Query String Parameter in SharePoint. Below are the words which you should not use as QueryString parameter name.

  • FeatureId
  • ListTemplate
  • List
  • ID
  • VersionNo
  • ContentTypeId
  • RootFolder
  • View
  • FolderCTID
  • Mode
  • Type
  • PageVersion
  • IsDlg
  • Title
  • _V3List_

So these are the Query String Parameter which is already reserved in SharePoint Site. Hence we can not use these reserved parameters in SharePoint.
