Application API (v1): Move a Card

LeanKit's Application API v1 is deprecated. New integration projects should use our v2 API suite found here:

In order to move a card using the LeanKit API, you need to provide the following:

  1. The Board ID (same as most of the other API calls)
  2. The Card ID
  3. The Lane ID for the destination Lane
  4. The position in the lane where you want the card moved. A value of 9999 will move the card to the last position in the lane and is the most optimal way to make this call.

To get the available Lane Ids, use the Get Board Identifiers API call, or to get the entire board including the Lanes and Lane Ids and the cards in each lane, use the Get a Board API call.
