On this page, we have gathered a few simple steps on how to obtain the direct download (raw content) URL from multiple service providers, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and Amazon S3.
For Dropbox files:
To force a browser to download the contents of a link rather than display it, you can use dl=1 as a query parameter in your URL. For example:
For Google Drive files:
If the link is shared from Google Drive itself, it will look something like this:
To force it to download, we take the file_id and build the following URL:
For documents exported from Google Docs, Sheets, and Presentations the format is a bit different but the idea is the same:
- Docs: https://docs.google.com/document/d/file_id/export?format=pdf
- Spreadsheets: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/file_id/export?format=xlsx
- Presentations: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/file_id/export/pdf
If you create a bucket named mybucket in the US West (Oregon) Region, and you want to access the invoice.pdf object in that bucket, you can use the following path-style URL:
Direct links are a premium feature in Box, unavailable on free personal accounts.
At the bottom of the shared link settings pop-up, you will find a direct link to your file. A direct link is a web address (URL) that links directly to a file (without using Box Preview).
