Asana Connector Reference

Asana is a SaaS-based project management tool that enables teams of all sizes to manage their daily tasks, schedules, and deliverables.

Connections

To connect to a system, whether it is a source of data or the target where you are sending data, you must create a connection with that system’s required credentials. You typically connect to different systems within a flow and can reuse each connection every time you need to connect.

This system requires the following credential information for its connections:

Connection Name

Enter a connection name that will help you remember the details of this connection. You can reuse connections multiple times in a single flow, and in more than one flow, and the credentials are hidden after you create the connection. Therefore, it’s helpful to provide a name that easily identifies this connection from others.

Only you can see the connection. Other users in your Composer app must create their own connections.

Older connections may expire if not regularly used. Asana sets the amount of time a connection remains valid.

Username

The OAuth username that you use to log in to Asana.

Password

The OAuth password that you use to log into Asana.

Triggers

Each flow starts with a scheduler that specifies a time span for how frequently the flow starts or with a trigger that you define, such as "each time a new record is created." Triggers provide multiple options related to the data in your system.

Triggers execute every ten minutes.

This system provides the following trigger options:

New or updated task

Fires when a task is created or an existing task is updated.

Actions

After you connect to a system and define the trigger or configure a scheduler, you define the actions that the flow performs, such as copying a record from Workday to Salesforce. The actions you can perform depend on which system you are connected to.

This system provides the following actions:

Create new task

Creates a new task record.

When creating a new task record, store the values for both the User ID and the Task ID in the source system for use when updating task records.

Update task

Returns the completed and updated task record.
