Tableau Connector for Asana

Build 21.0.7930

SubTasks

To Create, update, delete, and query from SubTasks table.

Table Specific Information

Select

The connector will use the Asana API to process WHERE clause conditions built with the following column and operator. The rest of the filter is executed client side within the connector.

  • ParentTaskId supports the '=' comparison.

For example, the following query is processed on server side and it is a required filter:

SELECT * FROM SubTasks WHERE ParentTaskId = '1127092449876457'

A simple SELECT query will only return the first level of subtasks.

SELECT * FROM SubTasks

There may be up to five levels of subtasks below a task. (Note, Asana does not recommend using sub-subtasks). If additional levels of subtasks are needed, a subquery can be used:

SELECT * FROM SubTasks WHERE ParentTaskId IN (SELECT Id FROM SubTasks)

When executing a query without a ParentTaskId filter, due to the Asana API design, subtasks are only retrieved on a per task basis. The connector will first query the workspace to retrieve a list of projects. A separate request will then be made for each project to retrieve all the applicable tasks. Another request will be made for each task to retrieve any subtasks associated with the task. In theory, this is similar to executing the following query:

SELECT * FROM SubTasks WHERE ParentTaskId IN (SELECT Id FROM Tasks WHERE ProjectId IN (SELECT Id FROM Projects))
Due to the number of required requests, performance may be impacted.

Insert

ParentTaskId is a mandatory column for inserting into Projects table. For example:

INSERT INTO SubTasks (ParentTaskId, Name, Assignee, AssigneeStatus, startOn, DueOn, Completed, ProjectId, Notes, ApprovalStatus, Followers) VALUES ('1167713816822372', 'subtask1', '1167715005778471', 'later', '2020-03-25', '2020-04-01',false,1167713816822364, 'SubTask Notes', 'changes_requested', '1167715005778471')
