I created a board for my org using the Trello API but I can't find it using search.

I used the POST request to this api call: https://api.trello.com/1/boards/.

I named the board and put in the relevant info.  The request returns a 200 OK status and I get json back with a url to the board.  The first board I created, I was able to get to using the url.  But I created a second board and I can't get to it with the url.  I also can't search for it by name using the Trello API or by typing in the name of the board in the web interface (for either boards).

How can I create a board that is searchable and able to be found?

Here's the request in node for the second board:

var options = { method: 'POST',
  url: 'https://api.trello.com/1/boards/',
   { name: 'Test Create Board 2',
     defaultLabels: 'true',
     defaultLists: 'true',
     idOrganization: '53c6704277052fbf73abc702',
     idBoardSource: '59529021034d0b27e6be620e',
     keepFromSource: 'lists',
     prefs_permissionLevel: 'org',
     prefs_selfJoin: 'true' } };

request(options, function (error, response, body) {
  if (error) throw new Error(error);



Here's the response I get back:

{ "id": "59765969a4b726efee6381c6", "name": "Test Create Board 2", "desc": "", "descData": null, "closed": false, "idOrganization": "53c6704277052fbf73abc702", "pinned": false, "url": "https://trello.com/b/gz2Hq7YQ/test-create-board-2", "shortUrl": "https://trello.com/b/gz2Hq7YQ", "prefs": { "permissionLevel": "org", "voting": "disabled", "comments": "members", "invitations": "members", "selfJoin": true, "cardCovers": true, "cardAging": "regular", "calendarFeedEnabled": false, "background": "blue", "backgroundImage": null, "backgroundImageScaled": null, "backgroundTile": false, "backgroundBrightness": "dark", "backgroundColor": "#0079BF", "canBePublic": true, "canBeOrg": true, "canBePrivate": true, "canInvite": true }, "labelNames": { "green": "Style", "yellow": "HLN", "orange": "Sponsorship", "red": "Tech", "purple": "Global", "blue": "Money", "sky": "", "lime": "", "pink": "Entertainment", "black": "Priority" } }

Looks like the board was created successfully. The problem may be that you don't have access to the board. If you create the board with a token for another user, and don't add yourself to the board (or make the board public), your user will not be visible/findable by you.
