monday.com workspaces are used by teams to manage their accounts by departments, teams, or projects. Workspaces can contain boards, dashboards, and folders to help you stay organized.

As a developer working with monday.com, it is important to familiarize yourself with the workspaces API so you know how to access workspace data. This document will walk you through the available queries and mutations to read and modify the workspaces object via the API.

Queries

Required scope: workspaces:read

Querying workspaces will return metadata about one or a collection of workspaces. This method accepts various arguments and returns an array.

You can query workspaces directly at the root or nest it within a boards query to return the workspace ID. If you nest it, you only need the boards:read scope.

Nested

query {
  boards {
    id
    workspace_id
  }
}
let query = 'query { boards { id workspace_id }}';

fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
  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)));

At the root

query {
  workspaces (ids: 1234567) {
    id
    name
    kind
    description
  }
}
let query = 'query { workspaces (id: 1234567) { id name kind description }}}';

fetch ("https://api.monday.com/v2", {
  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)));

Querying the main workspace

Every account has a main workspace. Querying the main workspace returns a null workspace ID because you typically cannot return these details via the API.

However, users will eventually be able to query main workspace details via the API as we complete a multi-product migration over the next few months. This capability will be released gradually, so you may not have access yet. All users will have this capability by the end of the migration.

Arguments

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

ArgumentDescription
ids [ID!]The specific workspace(s) to return.
kind WorkspaceKindThe kind of workspaces to return: open or closed.
limit IntThe number of workspaces to return. The default is 25.
order_by WorkspacesOrderByThe order in which to retrieve your workspaces. For now, you can only order by created_at.
page IntThe page number to get. Starts at 1.
state StateThe state of workspaces you want to search by: all, active, archived, or deleted. The default is active.

Fields

You can use the following field(s) to specify what information your workspaces query will return. Please note that some fields will have their own arguments or fields.

created_at DateThe workspace's creation date.
