Only getting actions of type commentCard from the API unlike from the website?


When I have a card open in the browser and add .json at the end of the URL I get a json file which includes an array of actions of various types (commentCard, createCard, addMemberToCard, updateCard). However with the following API call:{cardID}/actions?key={API_key}&token={API_token}

I only get actions of type commentCard. How can I get all actions of the card?

The problem is not that there are too many comments to show the other types.

@Bjarni Have a look at the documentation do the card/actions end point and you’ll see that the default filter is commentCard, you need to include the filter parameter explicitly to get other types, and the limit parameter will also allow you to see more actions than the default: 



It works perfectly now, I should have read the documentation more carefully. Thank you.
