Column values

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

Column values queries

Column values are available for querying through parent items. They must be nested within another query, like an item. You cannot use them at the root of your query.

You can find the Postman request to get column values from an item here.

query {
  boards (limit: 5) {
    items (limit: 50) {
      column_values {
let query = "query { items (limit: 50) { column_values { id value }}}";

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)));
