Hi @Oleksii Petrokhalko 👋

Thanks for your question! If you are using the POST /api/v1/cards/extended endpoint to create a card, you can add additional detail the body of the request in order to add it to a particular section.

First, you’ll need to grab the sectionId that you want by using the GET /api/v1/boards/{boardId}?lite=true endpoint.

Then, in body of the request to the POST /api/v1/cards/extended endpoint, you’ll want to add an “action” object to the boards list. It should look like this:

"action": {
"sectionId": "{sectionId}",
"actionType": "add",
"prevSiblingItem": "{sectionId}"

Hope this helps - let me know if this works for you!
