Hi @Alexander Sutyagin , interesting project!

You'll want to take a look at the Move issues to backlog for board endpoint:


The board ID is easy to pick up from the URL when you're viewing a board in Jira. I've confirmed this endpoint works with a Next-Gen Kanban project. Do note that you need the Backlog feature already enabled on the project before you can send issues to the backlog.
