Need a Sharepoint trigger when a list item is deleted

It seems like basic functionality to have a trigger when a Sharepoint list item is deleted, but somehow, that functionality doesn't exist. I'm not sure exactly how you could have created a trigger for when a list item is created and NOT realized, 'hey, maybe we need to have a trigger for when the item is deleted, too'!

Status: Completed

Good news - this item is completed, you can read about it in this blog post : - there are now triggers for both When an Item is delete and When a file is deleted. Thanks!

@StephenYou cannot claim that this request has been implemented when the implementation does not even allow us to access the fields of the record that was deleted (I am using a CDS entity, not a SP list, but both have the same severe limitation).


Here is a request to propertly implement this feature. Please upvote.

You got my upvote.


Brian make an excellent point, just because the added feature may have fulfilled your current need doesn't mean it's a complete feature. Everyone who voted this up originally should upvote the new request so we can get a more robust delete trigger w/ data access.

Desperately need a trigger for a sharepoint file download/view too.
