Can I use a Trello API to create Board Buttons programmatically?

Scott Isaacs April 14, 2023

I am working on a private app and am writing some code to programmatically create new boards from my app.  I understand how to manage things like board details, lists, cards, labels, etc., from the REST API.  But I am hoping I can also programmatically add a Board Button to the new board. 

For example, I'd like to add a board button to this new board that, when clicked, does an HTTP GET.  I know how I can manually add this button to the board using Trello's UI, but am hoping to automate its creation when my app creates the board.  Is that possible?  If so, can you point me to the API documentation?

Update: Since this is for a private app, I would prefer to not have a solution that requires me to publish a power up to the directory.

Hi Scott, 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Currently, rules and buttons are not exposed in the API and can only be accessed through the UI. We actually have it as an open feature request for the product team to consider! I'll add you as an official "+1" in support of this.

Let me know if you have any other feedback you'd like me to share with the team on this topic!
