    API Key Generation
  2. Generate an API Token:

    • On the same page where you found your API key, click the "Token" hyperlink next to the API key.
    • You will be prompted to authorize your app and generate a token. Click "Allow" to grant your app access to your Trello account.
    Token Generation
    • Keep this token secret as it grants access to your Trello data.

For detailed information on generating API keys and tokens, refer to the Trello API documentation.

Securing the OpenAI API Key

To use the OpenAI functionalities within Synapse Copilot, you'll need to obtain an API key from OpenAI. Follow these steps:

  1. Sign Up for an OpenAI Account:

    • Visit the OpenAI website.
    • Sign up for an account or log in if you already have one.
  2. Generate an API Key:

    • Navigate to the API section of your OpenAI dashboard.
    • Click on the option to generate a new API key.
    • Copy the generated API key and keep it secure.

For more details, you can refer to the OpenAI API documentation.

Configuring Your Project

Add your Trello API key, Trello token, and OpenAI API key to the config.yml file:

openai_api_key: "your_openai_api_key"
trello_api_key: "your_trello_api_key"
trello_token: "your_trello_token"

Running Synapse Copilot

To run Synapse Copilot and interact with your Trello boards, follow these steps to modify the file and set it up to use environment variables for your API key and token.

Step 1: Modify the File

Open the file in your favorite code editor and navigate to the section related to the Trello scenario. You will see a block of commented code and an active code block.

Step 2: Update the Code for Environment Variables

Ensure that the active code block is correctly set up to use the API key and token from the environment variables defined in your config.yml. Below is the modified code block:

elif scenario == "trello":
    os.environ["TRELLO_API_KEY"] = config["trello_api_key"]
    os.environ["TRELLO_TOKEN"] = config["trello_token"]

    key = os.environ["TRELLO_API_KEY"]
    token = os.environ["TRELLO_TOKEN"]

    api_spec, headers = process_spec_file(


    query_example = "Create a new board with name 'abc_board'"

This code sets the environment variables for the Trello API key and token from your config.yml file, eliminating the need to fetch them from a database. This approach simplifies the setup and enhances security.

Step 3: Run Synapse Copilot

With the file updated, you can now run Synapse Copilot. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the Synapse Copilot directory if you are not already there:

    cd Synapse-Copilot
  2. Run the application:

  3. Follow the prompts:

    • Select the Trello scenario by typing trello and pressing Enter.
    • Enter the user ID (this can be any placeholder value since we are not using it in this setup).

Example interaction:

Please select a scenario (trello/jira/salesforce): trello
Enter the user id: 1
Example instruction: Create a new board with name 'abc_board'
Please input an instruction (Press ENTER to use the example instruction):
  1. Provide an instruction or press Enter to use the example instruction provided:

    Query: Create a new board with name 'Health Planner'

The system will process the instruction and interact with the Trello API to create a new board named Health Planner.

By following these steps, you will have Synapse Copilot up and running, ready to manage your Trello boards efficiently. This powerful tool simplifies the process of working with APIs, allowing you to focus more on building and less on debugging.
