Connecting to Trello is a great way to use furl to automatically create cards as part of your furl experience. Unfortunitely, Trello isn’t the easiest connection to setup. This guide will walk you through getting your API Key and Token for the connection.
The first step is to create a Power-up for your Trello account. This is done by going to https://trello.com/power-ups/admin and clicking the “New” button.
Fill out the form with the following information:
New Power-Up Name:
Workspace: Select your workspace you want to connect to furl from the dropdown
Iframe connector URL (Required for Power-Up): Leave this blank. There will be a placeholder in the field. You can ignore it.
Email: Your email address
Support contact: Your email address or the support email for your team
Author: Your name
Then click Create.
Once you hit create, you’ll be taken directly to the API Key page. If you’re not, you can get there by going to https://trello.com/power-ups/admin and clicking on the Power-up you just created, then on the API Key tab on the left.
Click “Generate a new API key”
You’ll see a popup confirmation. Click “Generate API key”
Now you see a view that has 3 fields. The top is your API key. Copy this value and paste it into the API Key field in furl.
Now that you have the API key, you need to get the token.
Next to the API key, you’ll see a link that says “Token”. Click that link.
The link will open a new page that asks if you want to give your Power-up access to your Trello account. Scroll down to the bottom and click “Allow”.
You’ll be taken to a page that has a long string of characters. This is your token. Copy this value and paste it into the Token field in furl.
You’re all set to start creating cards in Trello as part of your furl experience. Update your activity and run your experience to see the cards appear in Trello.
