ID of swimlanes

I would like to find the ID associated with a specific swimlane within my Asana dashboard. Where would I find this ID?

Hi @Liam_Finn

Welcome to the forum.
Could you please elaborate more? What do you mean by the ID?
I assume you are referencing to the column in your board view, and you wanted to find something related to that column?

Hi @Rashad_Issa - yes, I would like to find the ID related to that column. I am trying to integrate a Google Sheets spreadsheet so the spreadsheet automatically creates tasks in Asana within a specific swimlane (column) in board view of my dashboard. Part of what is needed within the Apps Script code is the ID related to my dashboard, which I have grabbed from the URL (last string of digits). However, I am not finding a URL specific to a column, so I can’t find the column ID in the same way.

I’m curious if there is another place to find this column ID.

The column (“section”) ID is not shown in any type of URL like the project ID is. To get the column IDs for a project, you can use this in your browser:

https://app.asana.com/api/1.0/projects/{project_id}/sections

Which will give you a list of the columns/sections in the project as in:
