Asana Integration

In this article, we’ll integrate Asana with Y42.



Authentication: OAuth
Settings: Historical Date selection
Schema type: Fixed
Update Type: Full import and incremental


OAuth doesn’t share password data but instead uses authorization tokens to prove an identity between you and the service provider. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password. For instance, when you tell Asana that it’s OK for another application or website to access your profile. To sum up, you only need to have an existing account to authorize the access.


Import Settings

By default, the historical date will be set to one year ago. Refer to your own Asana account to decide from which exact date you would want to retrieve data.


You can find the full list of API endpoints for the Asana APIs and the description for each item on Asana API documentation.

Updating your data

You have the option of scheduling imports or Incremental Imports by the month, weeks, days, and even by the hour. With the incremental import, you will only add the new rows to that table, while a full import will actually re-import the entire table completely.

Incremental imports significantly increase the import speed, we import your table incrementally based on the last imported state e.g. id - If the table does not have a state, a full import will be triggered - This is done automatically.

We recommend therefore to schedule an incremental import regularly, but also schedule a full import with a certain frequency -- this is because only the full import will guarantee that old rows that have been updated on the data source will also get updated on your Y42 integration destination.
