Get columns constraints in Kanban Board via API in Jira Cloud


I’m wondering if is it possible to get columns constraints in Kanban Board via Jira Cloud API.

I tried to find it out but with no luck. It seems that Jira API doesn’t have such option, but, perhaps, I’m missing something. Perhaps, there’s another way to get them.

I will appreciate any help.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, @Alexander,

Have you seen the Jira Software REST API? Especially, the board configuration endpoint:


Dear @kkercz,

thank you for your answer, it seems that it’s exactly what I was looking for.


Do you know if is it possible to update/edit some of these fields?
For example to change a constraints number for one of the columns.

It seems that there’re only get endpoints for this configuration.

Is there any way to update columnConfig fields?

Thank you in advance.

No, I’m afraid there is no API for updating those, it would be possible only in the UI.


Thanks for the answer.

And what about changing the color of columns if the constraints limits were exceeded?
Currently it becomes a red one, but what if I would like to remove it or change?

Is there any option to do that? To change column color.

Thank you.

I am not sure you have access the that attribute but I will look into this deeper.

@Alexander there are only endpoints for getting that data but not for color attributes
