I am developing an add-on (Jira 7.5+) that can create project based on the customer actions. The project is created using a template but it happens that the project can be a software project so I have to create a board based that project too. While it is possible to create a board programatically I can not find a way to copy a existing board including the configuration. Moreover as far as I know there is no way to configure a given board using Java API.
I am aware that it does exist a REST API that does what I am asking for but since the add-on will run on the server side I am not able to make an authenticated REST call without storing somewhere an user and password for it.

RapidViewService rapidViewService = (RapidViewService) ComponentAccessor.getOSGiComponentInstanceOfType(RapidViewService.class);
RapidViewService has a method for fully copying a rapidview:
