Item Name (First Column)



To learn more about querying and mutating items, check out the Items and Items By Column Values sections.

The item name column is the first column seen on a board, and holds the names of your item(s).

You can update a preexisting item's name with a JSON string. Simple string updates are not supported.


To update the item's name, send a string between 1 to 255 characters long.

For example: "{"name":"My Item"}".

Code example

mutation {
  change_multiple_column_values(item_id:11111, board_id:22222, column_values: "{\"name\" : \"My Item\"}") {
fetch ("", {
  method: 'post',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization' : 'YOUR_API_KEY'
  body: JSON.stringify({
    query : "mutation ($myBoardId:Int!, $myItemId:Int!, $myColumnValues:JSON!) { change_multiple_column_values(item_id:$myItemId, board_id:$myBoardId, column_values: $myColumnValues) { id } }",
    variables : JSON.stringify({
      myBoardId: YOUR_BOARD_ID,
      myItemId: YOUR_ITEM_ID,
      myColumnValues: "{\"name\" : \"My Item\"}"
curl "" \
-H "Content-Type:application/json" \
-H "Authorization:MY_API_KEY" \
-d '{"query":"mutation{change_multiple_column_values(item_id:162169283, board_id:162169280, column_values:\"{\\\"name\\\" : \\\"My Item\\\"}\"){name}}"}'
