Webhook for Due Date

Is there any way to create a webhook for a Task with a due date / time that is now?

Background: I wanna create a Social Media Publishing System based on Asana together with Integromat where the Due Date should trigger the whole Publishing-Process

Hi @Felix_Stürmer,

It’s not possible to create a webhook that only fires on certain values. You’d need to create a webhook that fires on all changes to due dates, and then check the task’s due date value on each received event to see if it’s “now”.

Hey! Thank you for your answer but i really don’t see a clear path to realize that with a webhook and the change event? Can you be more precise here?

In general, you’d want to create a webhook on a given project like this one shown here:

https://developers.asana.com/docs/webhook-filter

except that you wouldn’t need the “dependencies” filter, just the “due_on” and “due_at” ones.

However, since you mention using Integromatt, the specifics of how they support the creation of webhooks will be the key; I’ve not used that tool so I’m afraid I can’t help you there.

Based on what I put on The Asana automation bible: all the triggers and actions from Asana, Zapier, Flowsana, Integromat & Automate @Phil_Seeman Flowsana has “Due date approaching or past due by a certain amount, changes at midnight”, would you consider adding an action “call endpoint” from Flowsana to solve this?

Hmm! Two solutions combined for that sounding dirty - isn’t it possible to integrate stuff like that as an available webhook that triggers from Asana directly and is available then for all tools?

Again, the answer is “yes” for a webhook that fires an event when a due date changes, “no” for a webhook that fires based on specific values of that due date.

Yes, I am considering that! :smiley:
