TRELLO API Search query examples

I'm trying to search cards by card number, but I'm not able to find documentation where the query format is explained.

Having some working example will be very useful

any pointer to the examples?

Hi guys, my apologizes upfront for tagging you on this thread.

I am a software developer currently working with Pipedream components, Pipedream being an integration cloud that runs node.js on the cloud. And at the moment I'm tackling actions for Trello. I have a set of components that use the /Search endpoint, and I am after the query parameter. What is the syntax that this point expects? Is there any documentation about this?

Looking at other Atlassian products, I see Jira has their on Jira Query Language, same for Crowd Query Language. Is there something similar for Trello that I can use when using the said Search endpoint?

I have lined up Search for cards, boards, labels, lists. 

Pipedream has a user base of 150k+ developers and Trello is one of the app that's being requested, so it would be unfortunate to get any glitches when our components. I would appreciate very much any help you can provide.

Many thanks,



I don't use the API native since I am using py-trello library. The documentation there is documented in the api documentation 

The search query with a length of 1 to 16384 characters

Min length: 1Max length: 16834

I do not use search a lot in my work since in most cases it is to response to specific http request and iterating through list of cards.

Hi @sergioeliot2039 

I'm afraid I don't have any particular recommendations, sorry. This would probably be a valuable question to share over in our dev community as well though.
