Getting full JSON from Trello API


We're using Trello REST API to get our data but doing it by requests is getting time and resource consuming. Is it possible to use the REST API to request the full JSON? Similar with the option that we have in Business Class but doing it through the API.

Hi @Vero Rivas, thanks for your answer. We used the documentation to build our crawler and do the requests but through the REST API we are just achieving individual requests (get board, then get card, then get field, and so on). This is getting very time and resource consuming since we have several teams and several boards within them. 

What we are looking for is a way to request a full JSON to reduce the number of requests. Ideally this would be like the export option where you download a full board JSON or even in Business Class when you download your team's JSON. But since we're automating the data collection, this would have to be through the API.

Thanks once again.

There is no mechanism via the REST API to get 'everything about everything' at once in a board using a single request, you have to reference each thing within that board specifically, since each thing has a unique relationship to the board and to the other things, not to everything concurrently.
