There’s a wealth of information available to every LeanKit user through the use of the LeanKit Application Programming Interface (API). The API can be used to extract status information for a custom report, automate routine tasks such as moving or updating a card, synchronize data with another system, and many other useful tasks.
To help customers get the most out of LeanKit, we provide Web Services for automating common tasks, such as creating, updating, and moving cards on a board. In addition, there are software clients available for common programming languages and platforms, making it easier to take advantage of LeanKit’s Web Services.
We are very excited to announce our LeanKit Integration Service. With LeanKit integrations, you can move projects, work and/or issues across a customized board. Taking advantage of visual cues, you’ll have instant visibility to the status of your work – despite the fact the data is “buried” in enterprise systems.
The LeanKit Integration Service can be used to synchronize projects between Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS), Visual Studio Online (VSO), JIRA, or GitHub, and your organization’s LeanKit boards for a more robust set of project management tools. The integration service is supported on our Select Edition.
