You will need to build filter query from array of ids and apply filter as shown below:

/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('SharePoint List Name')/items?$select=Title&$filter=((ID eq 1) or (ID eq 2))

Hope it works for you.

  • i know this way i want any other way this i think not good because i dont know how much ids comes from web so it make url long Jun 5, 2017 at 9:33
  • I don't think any other method will support this kind of filter. /_api/web/lists/getbytitle('SharePoint List Name')/items(1) : It is only allow one value Jun 5, 2017 at 9:34

May be you can create a dynamic CAML query from your array using javascript. Which may be look like below query:

          <FieldRef Name="ID" />
            <Value Type="Number">4</Value>
            <Value Type="Number">6</Value>

And then combine this CAML query with REST. Here CAML query will be act like a filter for your REST Url.

Please look below example that combines CAML query with Sharepoint REST API :

function _rest_Post(rquest) {
    return $.ajax({
        method: rquest.method,
        url: rquest.url,
        contentType: rquest.contentType,
        headers: rquest.header,
        data: JSON.stringify(rquest.body),


function GetByCaml(serviceParams) {
    var req = {
        method: 'POST',
        url: url + "/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('" + serviceParams.create.lName + "')/getitems",
        header: {
            "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val(),
            "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
            "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose"
        body: serviceParams.create.body,
        contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",

    return _rest_Post(req);


function getData(){
    var queryViewXml = myDynamicQuery; //this will be your dynamically generated caml query
    var params = {};
    params.create= {};
    params.create.lName = "MyList";
    params.create.filter = "";
    params.create.body = {
            '__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.CamlQuery' },
            'ViewXml': queryViewXml
    return GetByCaml(params);

    //success handler
}, function(error){
    //failure handler

Here is one workaround,

var filterQuery = "";

for(var i= 0; i<arrIds.length; i++)
    if(i == 0)
        filterQuery ="ID eq "+arrIds[i];
        filterQuery = filterQuery +" or ID eq "+arrIds[i];        

loop the ID's in the array & make filter query. Then use it in the url for the API request.

url = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl+"/_api/Web/Lists/GetByTitle('LISTNAME')/Items?$filter="+filterQuery;

May be this will help...
