In order for you and the Trello teams you collaborate with to have the full experience on this integration, you’ll need this agent’s API key to set up the Freshservice Power-Up in Trello.

2. Access the gear icon to configure your Freshservice Power-Up

In order to link the Power-Up to the Freshservice account, you’ll need to enter:

  • The URL of your Freshservice instance.
  • The API key of the Freshservice agent you choose to connect the PowerUp with.

Be sure to authenticate with an Admin user, so all Trello board members are able to see Freshservice tickets’ information linked to any Trello card.
