How to export custom fields from Trello

Hey all,


Trying to export data from a trello board to report to a client and need to pull out the custom feilds as we are using these to store various refernces. We also need the references to lookup against other older clunkier systems. 

Any idea how I might do this?

Many thanks

Hi Richard,


All of the Custom Fields data is included in Trello's JSON export, which you can read more about here:


Depending on how you're planning to use that information, the JSON export might be a little tough to parse, so your other alternative is to use Trello's API to pull out exactly what you need:


The API is fully documented, and that will let you get directly to the information you're looking for.
