Create project from a template in python

Is there a way to create a project using a template in Python? Or a way to duplicate a project from python?

My goal is to set up a new environment in Asana for the next year based on a template I made. I first thought was to copy the JSON structure of the project I created and loop it 200 times while changing the project name from a. But when I used client.projects.find_by_id, it did not give me tasks or sections.

Can you advise on possible solutions to this?

headers = {
‘Content-Type’: ‘application/json’,
‘Accept’: ‘application/json’,
‘Authorization’: ‘Bearer access token’,

data = {
“data”: {
“name”: "New Project ",
“team”: testing_team_id,


response =‘’, json = data, headers=headers)
for x in response:
