VivifyScrum API lets you manage your Board Items, using external third party applications.

Right now, you can perform the following actions:

  • Add Item
  • Edit Item
  • Delete Item
  • Export Board
  • Export Sprint
  • Get All Sprints

To be able to use VivifyScrum API, you'll need a unique Board API Key. One can be found on your ‘Configure Board’ page, on the Integrations tab. Simply copy the key already generated there and use it with all your API requests. API key can be sent as part of Authorization Header or as an additional GET parameter, it's up to you.
