Butler Http Request

Butler is Trello's native and must go to tool for your automation requirements and everyone should use it.

However, there are times when you need to interface with external 3rd party services. This is where Http Request comes in very handy.

You can either request for information, have something done for you or update some files, database ...etc.

This demo is to show you the potential of using Http Request and how this Butler feature can help you solve some of the more challenging automation requirements you might have in using Trello.

What would you use this for? Welcome your comments below.

You learn a lot from reading @Vongsawat  's comments especially on Butler rules, commands etc. So I have worked on 2 limitation identified by Vongsawat :

1) finding a next checklist item ... here's a demo where I put it to use in a checklist application. While you can create lookup using list with card name and description fields, it is not flexible since they have to be pre-defined. This is an alternative based on a http request

2) getting the custom fields in a card lookup. Apparently, and also based on limited testing, it seems to be true that while {found....} can be used on cardname, carddescription, ...etc. it does not work for custom fields. This is an alternative based on a http request
