Important changes to the BugHerd API

As you may know, we’ll soon be releasing our custom columns feature which will bring the ability to customise the columns that appear on your project Kanban board. Unfortunately, delivering this feature will involve a breaking change to our API v2.

If you are a user of our API & Webhooks, please contact us via commenting below so that we can delay enabling Custom Columns on your account until you’re ready.

Please note: we need to upgrade all accounts, by 30th April. We understand that this is an inconvenience so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions. We’re here to help in any way we can.

So what’s changed?

  • The status field is now the primary way to identify the status of a Task (e.g. which column the task is in). This will now be a case insensitive string, representing the name of the status that the Task is in.
  • The status_id field on a task has been deprecated. It’s value now indicates the Global ID of the column a task is in, with a few special exceptions. A value of null still indicates a task is in 'Feedback' and a value of 5 still indicates a task is 'Closed/Archived'.
  • Once custom columns are enabled on your account, if a column name is changed on a project, this will be reflected in the status that is returned from the API. Note, any member on a project can modify the column names, just like Trello.

Please refer to our updated API documentation for more detailed information.

What you need to do:

  • Contact us so we can delay enabling the Custom Columns feature for your organisation until you’re ready.
  • If you use status_id to identify the status of a task, you need to update your integration to use the status field. Please refer to our API docs for more information.
  • Contact us when you’ve updated your integration so we can enable the Custom Columns feature on your account.

What if I don’t update my integration?

We will need to upgrade all accounts, including yours, by 30th April. If you’re using status_id to identify a Task’s status, your integration will no longer work after this date.

Of course, if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on support@bugherd.com or comment below. We’re here to help in any way we can. :)
