Detailed Task Infos of projects via API

hi guys,

i’m quite new to this, so please forgive me if i’m not understanding right away. :wink:

i would like to load project infos into my dashboarding tool “klipfolio”.
my problem is, that with this call i only get rudimentary infos of the project
→ Task ID; Task-Name, Ressource-Type.

When I use the task-ids of the first call I am getting more details, but I would need to loop every task-id in order to get all the details: (-> Name, Created at, assignee, etc.)

The problem now is, that I’ve project which have too many tasks for the functions in klipfolio to loop over every item. I would generate a time out.

So I am looking for an api-call directly from asana, which could provide me with the necesarry infos, without needing to loop.

thank you very much for your help

best regards,

Hi :wave:

You can use parameters to ask for specific fields, example there Export JSON format including stories - #2 by Kothar

Does it help?

Hi Bastien,

thank’s for your help and sorry for the late reply - busy days.

Unfortunately I don’t realy understand how the post you’ve linked can help me.
How should I change the request?

Thank you!!
Cheers, christian

By default, endpoints only give you a few fields. You need to specifically ask for what you want, using opt_fields=assignee for example on a task. Does it help?

Hi Bastien,
thank you so much for your help.
So the http request should be like this?<project_id>/tasks/opt_fields=assignee

I’m sorry, but I’m no developer and trying to understand how everything works. :innocent:

cheers, christian

I believe so yes. Did you try it?

yes it works!
thank you for your help.

however you’ll have to put a “?” before the opt-fields
