Can we query multi-level lookup columns in sharepoint online using rest API?

Govind Bhatu asked:

Open original thread
There are 3 SharePoint Lists:

PersonList : 1) Title 2) AddressLookupColumn

AddressList : 1) Title 2) AddressTypeLookupColumn

AddressTypeList : 1) Title

What I need is the Name of Person, Address, and Address Type using OData Rest API. Below is my query which is not working...

https://mysitecollection/sites/test/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('PersonList')/items?$select=Title,AddressLookupColumn/Title,AddressLookupColumn/AddressTypeLookupColumn/Title&$Expand=AddressLookupColumn,AddressLookupColumn/AddressTypeLookupColumn

It gives me below error:

-1, Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException The query to field 'AddressLookupColumn/AddressTypeLookupColumn' is not valid.

Am I doing any mistake? Please let me know if anyone have idea. Thanks in advance…

What I have tried:

I have tried below rest api call.

https://mysitecollection/sites/test/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('PersonList')/items?$select=Title,AddressLookupColumn/Title,AddressLookupColumn/AddressTypeLookupColumn/Title&$Expand=AddressLookupColumn,AddressLookupColumn/AddressTypeLookupColumn

  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
