monday.get

You can use the monday.get software development kit (SDK) method to retrieve data from the parent monday.com application where your app is currently running. This object can only be used in client-side apps.

Parameters

  • type: The type of requested information (available values below)
  • params: Reserved for future use

The available types that can be requested are:

TypeDescription
'context'Information about where this app is currently displayed, depending on the type of feature
'settings'The application settings as configured by the user that installed the app
'itemIds'The list of item IDs that are filtered in the current board (or all items if no filters are applied)
'sessionToken'A JWT token that is decoded with your client secret and can be used as a session token between your app's frontend and backend
'filter'The state of the search filter
'location'The URL location within an app

Returns

A Promise that will be resolved with the requested data.

Examples

Retrieving your session token

Every time your app loads, we will generate a session token signed with your app’s client secret. Use the sessionToken type to retrieve the token. Your frontend should use this as the primary access to the current subscription.

monday.get('sessionToken')
.then((token) => { 
  // send token to backend
  // On backend, call jwt.verify(token.data, 'MY_CLIENT_SECRET') 
}

Token structure

  "exp": "2023-12-01T00:00:00Z",
  "dat": {
    "account_id": 1234567890,
    "user_id": 9876543210
  }
}

Requesting context and settings data

monday.get("settings").then(res => ...);
monday.get("context").then(res => ...);

Requesting the list of items currently in view on the board

Use the itemIds type to return the items that are currently visible on the board. If the user uses the board filter to reduce the records on the board, this method will return a list of items that satisfy this filter.

monday.get("itemIds").then(res => console.log(res));
// => [234234, 1114564, 2324234, 6763375, 5726567]

Getting the search term from the board search

Use the filter type to return the value that the user entered into the board search.

monday.get("filter")
  .then(res => console.log(res))
// => { "method":"get", "type":"filter", "data": { "term":"search this" }, "requestId":"vjt8nqrd8" }

Getting the URL location within an app

The SDK allows you to get a location value inside an app and returns the href, query, and search. You can also use the monday.listen("location") SDK method to listen to the location value.

monday.get("location")
  .then(res => console.log(res))
// => { "method":"get", "type":"location", "data": { "href": "https://monday.monday.com/boards/123456789/views/87654321", "query": { "foo": "bar" }, "search": "app[foo]=bar" }
