Setting up an Issue Board via the API

Hey all,

I’m trying to set up a new project, add a list of labels and then edit the development’s board so that these lists are shown as columns - all via the API. The problem is - I can’t find or edit the board via API (GET gives an empty return) until I have manually opened the project and clicked on Issues->Board. Apparently the board is not initialized/created with the project creation. I also can’t just add a board via API as that throws a 403 Forbidden error (probably as we’re on the free plan for testing right now).

Is there any way to get around this?

Thanks in advance!
