Get Facebook photo id by it's external source url

Minstel Published in 2018-02-12 17:38:32Z

I'm uploading photos to Facebook page album by script. Each photo is specified with external, non-facebook url, so actually these urls are uploaded, representing photos.

Some time after upload I may need to check if given photo was uploaded (it's possible, that it was not marked as uploaded by script).

Is it possible in Facebook API to obtain uploaded photo id, using it's external source url, by which it was uploaded?

After you upload the picture you get an id as a response of your post request.

curl -i -X POST \
 -d "url=https://www.facebook.com/images/fb_icon_325x325.png" \
 -d "caption=test photo upload" \
 -d "access_token=<user_photos_user_access_token>" \

I'm pretty sure you can query that id using get request to https://graph.facebook.com/v2.11/{id-of-photo}

You can also use the Graph Api Explorer to learn of the fields available for that object.

As noted @WizKid in a comment to issue, getting photo ID by it's original external source url is not possible.
