I'm trying to build a dashboard using data related to a board and it's lists, cards and custom fields.
I have successfully retrieved the board, lists and cards data via REST API. However, I've come across a few problems when trying to get custom fields data. Mainly because the custom fields data does not contain any information to indicate which card it belongs to.
I've been trying to get the custom fields for cards on a Trello board via REST API.
So I've been creating a JDBC connection using a URL created by following the documentation from the link above.
However, this returns a list of all the custom fields in the board, but it does not contain any data that will allow me to join with data related to the cards in the board.
Does anyone know how I can get the kind of data related to custom fields that I'm looking for? Thanks!
hi, thanks for replying
I'm trying to get the custom fields for all cards - without having to create a URL for each and every card on the board.
I've used the following URL:
This appears to get all the custom fields in the board, but does not contain data that identifies the card it belongs to.
I want to join all the custom fields with their corresponding cards. perhaps I'm using the wrong definitions? thanks
@Alex Nim I have been using a python wrapper for Trello API. To get the card CF you need to fetch each card then get each CF. And when you want to update or add a CF you need the CF definition (object) for that CF because the definition will define, amongst other things, the type_field like number, list, date...etc.
The definitions are defined at the board level.
@Alex Nim the custom fields API is a bit of a labyrinth. You can see my complete implementation if you start from here:
Basically you get a list of custom field definitions for the board, then you use the IDs to get individual values on a per card basis.
