Which REST API call == Export JSON via Browser


I tried to export a board using Export to JSON via browser and I have also managed to set up my tokens in order to use the REST API.

However the content of:
1. <BOARD_ID>.json downloaded via browser
2. output of getting https://api.trello.com/1/boards/<BOARD_ID>?&key=<KEY>&token=<TOKEN>

Are rather different from each other. In particular, #1 contains way more information.

I was wondering which call of the API was equivalent to downloading the board JSON info via browser.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure that there is a single API request to export all of the contents of a board exactly as they come out of the export function.

But you can get most of the information with this single request:


Your answer helped me a lot. I just had to add '&member_fields=all&actions=all'

Happy to help, Pedro.
