Retrieving UUIDs from TCGA Barcodes in the GDC File Repository

Is there a reliable method for retrieving the UUID of a BAM file that corresponds to a TCGA barcode? I've found that searching by submitter id does not bring up the specific BAM files, and though sometimes the name of the BAM file includes the TCGA barcode, it isn't always consistently like that. I also tried using the TCGA Barcode to UUID Mapping service but it seems that it is no longer supported.

Just look up the barcode at the GDC and take a look at all files possible available under that barcode.

A solution for mapping between TCGA Barcode and UUID has been made here: Sample names for TCGA data from GDC-legacy archive
