Asana Subtask

I have a scenario setup where anytime a new row is added to Mysql it creates that row as a task in Asana in project 1. That works. I then need to create subtasks on the newly created tasks in Project 1. The subtasks that need to be created exist as tasks in Project 2. The tasks in Project 1 have custom fields. Let’s say task 1 (in Project 1)has a custom field with a display value of “make”. In Project 2, I also have tasks. Let’s say task 1 (in Project 2) has a custom field with a display value of “make”, and Task 2 (in Project 2) has a custom field with a display value of “make”. If this is the case I want to match the “make” value and take Tasks 1 & 2 (in Project 2) and copy them as subtasks to Task 1 (in Project 1). I am having a hard time targeting Task 1 (in Project 1) based on the matched value of “make” Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

1. Screenshots of module fields and filters

Please share screenshots of relevant module fields and filters in question? It would really help other community members to see what you’re looking at.

You can upload images here using the Upload icon in the text editor:

2. Scenario blueprint

Please export the scenario blueprint file to allow others to view the mappings and settings. At the bottom of the scenario editor, you can click on the three dots to find the Export Blueprint menu item.

(Note: Exporting your scenario will not include private information or keys to your connections)

Uploading it here will look like this:

3. And most importantly, Input/Output bundles

Please provide the input and output bundles of the modules by running the scenario (or get from the scenario History tab), then click the white speech bubble on the top-right of each module and select “Download input/output bundles”.


Save each bundle contents in your text editor as a bundle.txt file, and upload it here into this discussion thread.

Uploading them here will look like this:

module-1-input-bundle.txt (12.3 KB)
module-1-output-bundle.txt (12.3 KB)


If you are unable to upload files on this forum, alternatively you can paste the formatted bundles in this manner:

  • Either add three backticks ``` before and after the code, like this:

    input/output bundle content goes here

  • Or use the format code button in the editor:

Providing the input/output bundles will allow others to replicate what is going on in the scenario even if they do not use the external service.

Following these steps will allow others to assist you here. Thanks!
