Querying For Board IDs

I am very new to GraphQL.

In reading all of the API documentation I see that I can query data multiple ways using board IDs. I have a remedial question about getting board IDs to start with. I am looking to query a set of boards by the Board Name and then use those IDs to query additional data.

Is that done by querying all boards and then parsing locally for IDs? There does not seem to be a way to search by the name of the board. Is that accurate? I may be looking at this too much like it is SQL.

I also see that there is a board_folder_id that is part of the board fields, but I do not see any other reference to a folder that would allow me to get a folder name associated with a board. Is is it possible to get a folder name from a board?

Thank you for any help that you can give.

Hi @axlf

Yes, you are correct, you would need to query ALL boards, and then find the specific ID that you are looking for.

Using the monday Apps framework, you can receive the board_id in the payload.

At this stage, there isn’t the ability to query the folder name using the API.
