I want to get content OR download file by GUID. I can work when use APIs below to get ServerRelativeUrl and use which to download file. But I must call three API:

https://your-site/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('document')/items?$top=1&$filter= UniqueId eq 'GUID'



I just want to call an API by GUID.

Hope everyone can help.

If you want to get file using SharePoint API calls only, try using API call like:

<siteUrl>/_api/web/GetFileById('<file unique id>')

Reference: Working with document Libraries based on UniqueID REST API


You can also try using URL like this and see if it works for you:


Where F841E2A9-A1E3-4941-A0A1-8A9080ED6756 is unique ID of your file.
