  • Permissions: Select the scopes you've requested for your application.

Press the blue "Connect" button to save your credentials.

Connecting to Trello

Once your users have connected their Trello account, you can use the Paragon SDK to access the Trello API on behalf of connected users.

See the Trello REST API documentation for their full API reference.

Any Trello API endpoints can be accessed with the Paragon SDK as shown in this example

// You can find your project ID in the Overview tab of any Integration.

// Authenticate the user
paragon.authenticate(<ProjectID>, <Paragon User Token>);

// Get a board
await paragon.request("trello", "/boards/<Board ID>", {
  method: “GET,

// Create a new card
await paragon.request("trello", "/cards",
  method: “POST”,
  body: {
    idList: “<List ID>,
    name: “New task”,
    desc: “Integrate all productivity apps using Paragon”

Building Trello workflows

Once your Trello account is connected, you can add steps to perform the following actions:

  • Search Cards

  • Get Cards in Board

  • Create Card

  • Update Card

  • Delete Card

  • Get Lists in Board

  • Search Boards

When using Trello, you can reference data from previous steps by typing {{ to invoke the variable menu.

Using Webhook Triggers

Webhook triggers can be used to run workflows based on events in your users' Trello account. For example, you might want to trigger a workflow whenever Cards are updated to sync your users' Trello Cards to your application in real-time.
