Description: Undelete former version of card's description?

Hi All,
there is a expanation how to restore a deleted or former version of a card's descrition, but it doew not work.
What went wrong when I used it?
I have installed JSONview (tried Chrome and Firefox), using this proposed link and replacing  cardID.[cord ID]/actions?Filter=updateCard:desc.

All that appears on the screen is this:    [ ]

Many thanks in advance!

@Melanie_Eispert Card IDs aren't sensitive, can you post the exact URL you're attempting to use here so I can double check?

If what you're seeing is [] that means the card has no description update actions.

For example, if you remove ?filter=updateCard:desc you should see a list of all card actions.

Anyway if you post the exact link you're using I can check for any issues.

Thank you very much, Iain :)
I found out that there is a second way to find an old description. I exported the user's Trello board, searched within the JSON-file for the correspoding sting (ID works as well as  name of card) and found the old description text.

Many thanks for your support,
