You need to perform a POST request to /1/boards with a JSON payload similar to this:

  "name": "My copied board",
  "idBoardSource": "SOURCE_BOARD_ID"

where SOURCE_BOARD_ID is the id of the board you want to copy.

Perfect !

Thank you, i'll give it a try

Please find the below link for the copy of the board

/rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapidview/{source board id}/copy

Thanks Srinivas! I was able to copy the board. However, I still haven't found a way to rename it using the API. Do you know a way to do that too? Cheers!

do I need to pass on any data to API? For some reason I am getting a code 405. In theory it should work without any issues even without data (I assume that copied board are renamed upon copy, right?)

Please find the below link for the board re-name


By passing Id & name.

Thanks! Is there a list of these functionalities somewhere, as they aren't on the official API page?

Hi Srinivas,

It would be great if you could help me out with two more things:

  1. update a board's location using API
  2. create quick filters using API

Much appreciated,


Even, I'm searching for the same. Soon I may post the details. Thanks 

No. These are not public API's

Hi Srinivas,

This code should do the trick for moving the board:

PUT - ... /rest/greenhopper/1.0/rapidviewconfig/boardLocation

"rapidViewId": Board_id,
"locationType": "project",
"locationId": project_id
