How To Get Trello Board Id

Trello is a useful platform for managing projects and tasks, but there may be times when you want to access it programmatically. This blog post provides guidance on how to do this, whether you’re creating a Trello integration or simply need to locate a board’s unique ID for other purposes. Let’s dive into the steps for finding a Trello board’s ID.

Step 1: Get Your API Key

First things first, you’ll need to get your API key. The API Key is a unique identifier for your Trello account which allows you to interact with Trello’s API.

You can find your API Key by visiting

Step 2: Fetch Your Trello Boards

Once you have your API key, you can use it to fetch a list of your Trello boards. Replace ‘YOUR_API_KEY’ with your actual API key in the URL and open it in your web browser:

This will return a JSON array of your Trello boards. Each board object in this array contains several properties, including the board’s name and ID.

Step 3: Find Your Board ID

With the JSON array of your Trello boards, it’s quite simple to find the ID of the desired board. Just look for the “id” field in the JSON object for the board you’re interested in.

For example, if you have a board named ‘My Project’, the JSON object for that board might look something like this:

            "name": "My Project",
            "id": "5b4a69cbb7cfa1ac8b0e8476"

In this case, the board ID is 5b4a69cbb7cfa1ac8b0e8476.

And You’re Done!

That’s it! You now know how to find the unique ID of a Trello board. This ID is static and will not change, so you can use it whenever you need to reference this board in the Trello API.
