Rest API - Boards does not return last opened attributes

The “boards” rest API returns a number of attributes including “createdAt”, “createdBy”, “modifiedAt”, and “modifiedBy”. Is there a way to get the “last_opened” attributes? One can sort the results by “last_opened” date, but the details on the “last_opened” event are not returned e.g., “lastopenedAt” and “lastopenedBy”.

I am building a solution to delete boards that have not been used within a set time period. I would like to include both the last opened and last modified dates into my deletion criteria.

Hey @Stephen Wingert,

Thanks for raising this—it’s a great point, and I can definitely appreciate how valuable it would be to expose these details (lastOpenedAt, lastOpenedBy) within the GET Boards endpoint.

While you’re correct that the closest approach at the moment is to use the last_opened sorting method, I will raise this internally as a feature request to see if it’s something we might be able to support in the future. 

Thanks again for the suggestion, and I’ll be happy to share any updates with you here.

Best,
Will
