Search a card in trello by custom field



I am integrating trello API and i am stuck in search API. Is there any way to search any particular card by the custom field, as i understand /search API allow to filter cards only on cards fields not custom field.

Also, is there any way to find recently modified records where i can find which are updated today or recently by passing the start time?

Hi @Bodhi 👋

Welcome to the Community! To help, I would recommend taking a look at this support article on How to Filter Trello Cards by Custom Field - hopefully that may be able to shed some light. 

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,


@Laura Holton I believe what you mentioned is UI process, what I am looking is to filter by Trello API. 


Well if that is what the api says then I like you just have to do some coding like using list comprehension ....see example to get call cards where Task Status == 'Completed'

[card for card in board.open_cards() if card.get_custom_field_by_name('Task Status').value == 'Completed']

Yes, I cheated.

This same process can be done with gather cards in Cascade.

@milynnus I am looking directy to use trello  API. BTW can you mentioned in what langauage you have wrote that query or use any trello library?
