"Find and replace" on a Trello Board

I have taken a copy of a board .. many of the items have a client name - let's say "CLIENT ABC" .. I would like to replace every occurrence of that on the board - either in card title, description, in every place if appears - to "CLIENT XYZ'. What is the best way to achieve that ?

Hi @Pam Cooke ,

Welcome to the community!

You can have a look at this link and see if it works for you

For a moment, I was excited to read the post. It was for the ButlerBot. Is it available now? I double check Butler but cannot find the equivalent. @Pam Cooke  did you manage to find it?

An earlier post prompted me to create my own solution only because I could not find one in Butler. No sure it can be applied to all parts of a card but eg you have access to a variable like {triggercarddescription} it will return you a variable {http....} and you can use it to set the card description to it.

Hi - no answer yet - the Butler doesn't seem to help me from having a look at it .. so I think I just have to do this manually for now ... although clearly that is not a decent long term solution ... I will be using this board as a template for future projects.  Male I just need to rethink the wording on some of the cards to remove the client name.

Here's the documentation of the completed module. The module use just one python statement to handle the find and replace. The rest is to get the input from Butler and to return the matching string.

output = para['input'].replace(para['match'], para['replace'])

The mechanisms to deliver this is obviously a gigantic development process but now I plug in modules as small as the one above. BTW there is an example of how it can use in the link below.

All the best to your conversion effort. It is not uncommon after some usage to realise that it can be done better.
