Undocumented List Definition Properties

While the MSDN article gives most of the properties that you can use when configuring your list definition it does miss a few. I’ve documented the missing properties that I’ve found below:

Attribute

Description

ForceCheckout Optional Boolean. TRUE to require documents to be checked out before they can be edited.
EmailAssignTo Optional Boolean. TRUE to automatically send emails to the user when an item is assigned to them.
MajorVersionLimit Optional Integer. Specifies the number of major versions to retain when versioning is enabled.
MajorWithMinorVersionLimit Optional Integer. Specifies the number of draft versions to retain for each major version when versioning is enabled.
