How can I copy a board using the API?

The use case is quite simple, I create different projects with the same configuration. I'd like to be able to create two board for each project. I can already save a filter with the API, so what I would like to do is copy a board then change its filter.

According to this: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWSERVER-15631 I can't do it step by step. 

 

This is related, but I was never able to make it work: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Trello-questions/Copy-a-board-using-API/qaq-p/605299

 

Thank you!

There is an api to copy the board 

/rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapidview/{sourceboard id}/copy

Request Type : PUT

This is what I was looking for! :) Where did you get that? I couldn't find the documentation. By any chances, do you know if there is an API to change the board's filter?

Thank you very much! 

The above link will not be find in any atlassian documentation. This is not a public REST API's but we can drilled down the functionality and api calls with the chrome tools.

Hi Alexis,

The second link you sent is for Trello which would have different API endpoints so that could explain why that isn't working.

In regards to this specific request I did some research and did not find a solution that would copy the board in this manner.  At this point please vote on JSWSERVER-15631 if you have not to add impact and you'll be notified of any updates.

Cheers,

Branden
