How to become a known application



I am trying to build some CICD integration with Trello, mainly moving cards in list when the PR is created, the build is done, the load is done...

Modifying a card requires some special permissions but I can see that the token I am creating is assigned to an unknown application which has not the permissions. This is due to the DEV_KEY I am using which is my personal dev key maybe? How can I bypass this restriction and become a known application (as I am building an app for me, so well known) or is there another way to grand permission?

I finally found the right url to use to create a valid token with write permission,write

Replace youkey with your devkey and your_board_name with the name of your board. Then you can autorise and voila you have a token that can move card!

Please if my question is not clear, let me know I will rephrase, but I haven't found any hint googling. Is there a certification to pass, a plan to move to...


I will speak from my development experience. You will need to get your api key and token and set on a client or where it is required a Trello API. 
Trello app would generally be a Power Up and there is a place to register that. 

Thanks for your answer the problem is the generated token which has rights restriction. I have the dev key and application token. But the token is associated to what Trello call an Unknown Application which is not granted to modify cards.
