Creation Log

The creation log column represents an item's creator and the date and time they created it.

Check out our help center to learn more about the creation log column.

This column is partially supported by our API. You can read the creation log column via the API but cannot update it.

Reading the creation log column

You can return the data in a creation log column in just one format. The text field will return the data as a simple string that displays the date and time someone created an item. This field does not show you who created the item. The value field will return null.

Here is an example payload showing both fields:

{
  "value": null,
  "text": "2022-07-27 12:00:00 UTC"
}

Since you can't query the creation log column to return the creator of an item, we identified a solution to return the same data. You can query your items directly for the creator.

Here is a sample query to find the item's creator:

query {
  boards (ids: 2973227049) {
    items (ids: 2973227079) {
      creator {
        name
      }
    }
  }
}
