Toggle API Mode

LeanKit’s guide to understanding and utilizing the new API Mode.

LeanKit’s Toggle API Mode allows you to switch to a representation of your board that displays IDs required for mapping integrations. Displaying IDs directly on your board makes it easier for you to locate IDs and configure your integrations.

To access the Toggle API Mode, simply click the gear icon in the upper, right-hand corner of your board and select Toggle API Mode from the dropdown menu that appears.


This will bring up a view of your board that displays IDs for cards, lanes, card types, and custom icons.


Copying an ID is as simple as clicking on the board element you’d like to copy the ID for. Once clicked, the ID is copied to your clipboard, ready to use in your integration software.


Note: While in API Mode, normal board functions like moving and opening cards are disabled.
