I need to get the ID of a web part on a page before I have redirected the browser to the page.

The reason for this is that I need to update a field value that contains web part settings, which are linked via the web part ID's. I can access the page field and update it through a POST-call using the REST API, but I have yet to find a way to retrieve the web part ID's on the page.

If the case was that I could load the page first, then it would have been simple to retrieve them with jQuery.

Is this possible, or do I have to find another way? Using CSOM would be an acceptable answer as long as it's done with JavaScript.
