Retrieving item terminology thru API

Hi devs,
is there a way to retrieve the item terminology thru API?


This is 100% possible! You are looking for the column type! Your query would look something like this:

query = 'query ($boardID:Int!) {boards(ids:[$boardID]){items{column_values{type}}}}'
vars = {
    'boardID': boardID

Here is the documentation for what you’re trying:

Thank you, @NeelPi, but no, I’m not talking about column types.

Sorry about that! Misunderstood what you were asking!

It doesn’t look like the item terminology is exposed by the API, hopefully someone else has a better answer.

Hello @rob!

As of today, there is no way of retrieving the terminology via API.

I will add this as a feature request!


@rob @NeelPi,
Glad to announce this is now available.

You can use our boards API, and in addition to the already existing fields, you can now retrieve a field called item_terminology, like this:

query {
  boards {

This would retrieve the term used for items, on each of the queried boards:

  "data": {
    "boards": [
        "id": "123",
        "name": "A",
        "item_terminology": "project"
        "id": "456",
        "name": "B",
        "item_terminology": "item"
        "id": "789",
        "name": "My first board",
        "item_terminology": "task"
  "account_id": 123

Have fun with it, and let me know of any further questions! :slight_smile:
