SharePoint 2013 get full file name including extension

SharePoint Asked by Adam13Hylo on November 5, 2021

Wondering if anyone can help me please, I have a media library with a number of videos in and I want to get the full file name including the extension out of the library, I have so far tried using REST and also using CSOM, here is my REST query:

    url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Videos')/items(" + id[ic] + ")",
    method: "GET",
    headers: { "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose" },
    success: function (data) {
        // Returning the results

    error: function (data) {

I have tried using the uri, the absolute encoded uri, the fileref however I only get back the file name with out the extension, for instance I want: My video.mp4 however I am only getting back My Video

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Try the below REST End point,

_spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Videos')/items?files?$filter=Id eq 1&$select=File$expand=File"


_spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl +"/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Videos')/getitembyid(1)?$select=File&$expand=File"

Get the file name with extension by accessing Name property and url property by accessing ServerRelativeUrl

use /_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Videos')/Files and you should be able to get the file name and extension
