Copy Board with Select Cards - using API

We have created an Onboarding Template board using Labels to identify those cards which are unique to a given role.  We would like to use the API to:

  1. Copy the template board to a "Welcome Joe" (or whatever) board
  2. During the copy process select from the Labels on the template the one appropriate for Joe's role
    1. possibly be able to select more than one

This would generate the 'Welcome Joe' board with only those cards identified / selected from step #2.

@Alann DemeesterThe workflow you describe could be implemented using the Trello API.  This involves some programming.

Is there anything specific you'd need to be answered?

I gathered that this would require programming using the API. 

I was reaching out to the community to see if anyone had tackled anything like this before.  I am assuming the copy board functionality through the API would be pretty straight forward.

It was more the automatic removal of cards without a selected Label and removal of all specific type labels that was more concerning.  And if anyone had experience doing something like this.

As I understand, the overall API programming problem you describe is quite generic.  However the specific details you want like removing cards with (configurable) labels will make this a custom programming job.

If you don't do this action very often (e.g. once a month), you can also copy a whole board and delete all cards not matching a label manually.
