Be able to specify boards in issue templates

This is related to another thread here: Apply labels automatically at issue creation

Issue templates currently allow you to specify title, labels, or assignees in the YAML front matter. There’s only one thing missing: boards

I’ve just been looking for a way to do this. Shame it’s not possible. @andreagriffiths11 did the suggestion get any traction?

Also I couldn’t find a reference for what fields are supported in the YAML frontmatter for issue templates. Is it documented somewhere?
