Board Extension

Enable Board Appearance on a Grid

To add board appearance on a grid, do the following:

  • Go to the datagrid yml

  • Add the following lines into the datagrid configuration

        # <grid configuration> goes here
                {board-uid}: #unique board id
                    label: Board Label
                        property: option_set_field
                            priority: ASC
                    card_view: demobundle/js/app/views/board/your-entity-card-view

  • save_api_accessor for column transition option (check documentation)

  • save_api_accessor for default transition (check default_transition configuration option below)

  • save_api_accessor for inline editing (check this article
