REST API - create card from template?


The 'create a new card by email' option does not have options for creating a card from an existing template by email.

In looking at the REST API's at

it seems like there are no specific options for working with a template either.

Is the workaround to get the checklists from the template with 

Get Checklists on a Card

and then use

Create Checklist on a Card

to add the "copied" checklists to a new card?

Any help is appreciated.  😀

@Hyland, Kevin R. the solution you outlined is a good one, just build your template using Butler rules when a card is emailed into the board

@Hyland, Kevin R. 

This is what we do. There may be other ways of doing it but this is the easiest and most straightforward way we've found.


@Iain Dooleyman, you are everywhere on this forum! You deserve something special from Atlassian for your dedicated contributions here.

@Hyland, Kevin R. thanks! Atlassian do actually send out nice things to community leaders and participants :) Although I've not been participating anywhere near as much the past 4 months due to being consumed by another project.
