Sending Errors to Trello

ErrLog.IO can send errors to Trello in the form of a new Trello Card. If you use Trello within your business as a way of tracking bugs, this is a great way to easily and quickly create new cards.

 

Using the Trello Email-to-board Settings

Trello offers a simple mechanism to create cards from an email. From within Trello, all you need to do is activate this feature and take a note of the email address they provide.

To get your email address for a board, log in to Trello in the browser and open the board you would like to create cards by email on. Open the Menu in the right sidebar and select "Email-to-board Settings". From here, you can select where on the board the new card will be created. You can click on the current list name ('None' in the example shown to the right) to change that to a different list.

Creating the ErrLog.IO Integration

Once you have your email address from Trello, simply go to our integrations page, and create a new "Trello Email To Card" integration.

ErrLog Error to Trello Board Integration

Within the destination field, simply enter the email address from Trello.

The payload field is your Trello card title. You can enter any text here, and use the payload variables shown on the right to insert error-specific values.

We will automatically insert content into your card with details of the bug you have specified.

 

Example Payload

The following is an example payload and how it is represented in a trello card.

Triggering a Trello Integration

You can build a rule to automatically trigger a Trello card creation event, or alternatively click the Trello icon on your dashboard or within the details of an error.
