Column values v1

Every board has one or more columns, each of which holds a particular type of information. These column values are essentially the board's content, and their inner value structure varies based on their type.

As a developer working with, it is important to familiarize yourself with the column_values API so you know how to access data within columns. This document will walk you through the available queries to read the column_values object via the API.


Removing column values v1 support

column_values v1 fields will no longer be supported in API versions 2023-10 and later. Check out the updated fields in the column_values v2 doc!


Querying column_values will return metadata about one or a collection of columns. This method accepts one argument and returns an array.

You can only query column_values by nesting it within another query, so it can't be used at the root. Check out this query in action in our Postman library or follow along with these code samples!

query {
  boards (ids: 1234567890) {
    items (ids: 9876543210) {
      column_values {
let query = "query { boards (ids: 1234567890) { items (ids: 9876543210) { column_values { value text }}}}";

fetch ("", {
  method: 'post',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
   body: JSON.stringify({
     query : query
   .then(res => res.json())
   .then(res => console.log(JSON.stringify(res, null, 2)));

You can use the following argument(s) to reduce the number of results returned in your column_values query.

You can use the following field(s) to specify what information your column_values query will return.
