How To Find Trello Board Id

If you are attempting to incorporate or automate Trello with other tools or scripts, you may need to access your Trello Board ID. While it may not be readily available on the interface, it is simple to locate. Our blog post will guide you through the necessary steps.

What is Trello Board ID?

A Trello Board ID is a unique identifier for a specific Trello board. It’s used by Trello’s API to reference a specific board in a command or request.

Step-by-step guide to finding your Trello Board ID

Here’s how you can obtain your Trello Board ID:

  1. Open the Trello board you want to find the ID for.
  2. In your browser’s address bar, you’ll see a URL structured like this: The part marked as XXXXXX represents a short key for your board and is not the actual board ID.
  3. To get the board ID, we’ll need to pull up the board’s JSON file. You can do this by adding .json to the end of your URL, so it looks like this:
  4. Press Enter to load the JSON file.
  5. Once the JSON file is open, search for “id”:”. The string immediately following this text is your Trello Board ID.

Remember, you should only share your Trello Board ID with trusted sources as it can provide access to your board’s information.

Using the Trello Board ID

Once you have the Board ID, you can use it to interact with the Trello API. For instance, to get lists on a board, you would use a command like:

GET /1/boards/{id}/lists

Replace {id} with the ID of the board.


Finding your Trello Board ID is a simple process once you know where to look. With this ID, you have more power to customize your Trello experience and integrate with other tools and APIs.

Happy Trello-ing!
