Trello boardPlugins endpoint not working as expected (API) Edited

Hi there! I'm trying to enable the Custom Fields plugin using the API. Unfortunately, I can't get it to work. I'm using the following cURL command for testing:


I'm using the endpoint as documented here:


curl -X POST "{boardId}/boardPlugins?key={key}&token={token}&idPlugin=56d5e249a98895a9797bebb9", unfortunately, without any success. Can anyone help me out here? The output I'm getting is 'Forbidden', no JSON, nothing, although I can create boards, add comments etc without any issues. Am I missing something?

I've raised this issue to Trello customer service. They were able to reproduce the issue and will be pushing out a fix. No ETA yet unfortunately

@Wouter de Droog this was explicitly deprecated recently so I wouldn't hold your breath for a fix:

Interesting. This endpoint is still in the documentation without a deprecation warning

@Wouter de Droog Hi there, thanks for flagging this issue. We'll be updating the docs accordingly to reflect these changes to the API.

Thank you @Jireh . Since the Trello API already has a lot of API methods, natively, for interacting with custom fields, it would be nice to enable it via the API directly.

I can understand that being able to enable every plugin could be a security risk, but perhaps the custom fields plugin could be added to the /1/boards/{id}/powerUps endpoint, and/or as a parameter when creating the board?
