Asana setup requirements

To set up Asana in Stitch, you need:

  • Access to all the data you want to replicate in Asana. This includes projects, tasks, tags, users, and workspaces. If the user authorizing the integration in Stitch doesn’t have access to something in Asana, Stitch will be unable to replicate it.

Step 1: Add Asana as a Stitch data source

  1. Sign into your Stitch account.
  2. On the Stitch Dashboard page, click the Add Integration button.

  3. Click the Asana icon.

  4. Enter a name for the integration. This is the name that will display on the Stitch Dashboard for the integration; it’ll also be used to create the schema in your destination.

    For example, the name “Stitch Asana” would create a schema called stitch_asana in the destination. Note: Schema names cannot be changed after you save the integration.

Step 2: Define the historical sync

The Sync Historical Data setting will define the starting date for your Asana integration. This means that:

  • For tables using Incremental Replication, data equal to or newer than this date will be replicated to your data warehouse.
  • For tables using Full Table Replication, all data - including records that are older, equal to, or newer than this date - will be replicated to your data warehouse.

Change this setting if you want to replicate data beyond Asana’s default setting of 1 year. For a detailed look at historical replication jobs, check out the Syncing Historical SaaS Data guide.

Step 3: Create a replication schedule

In the Replication Frequency section, you’ll create the integration’s replication schedule. An integration’s replication schedule determines how often Stitch runs a replication job, and the time that job begins.

Asana integrations support the following replication scheduling methods:

To keep your row usage low, consider setting the integration to replicate less frequently. See the Understanding and Reducing Your Row Usage guide for tips on reducing your usage.

Step 4: Authorize Stitch to access Asana

  1. Next, you’ll be prompted to sign into your Asana account.
  2. Enter your Asana credentials and sign into your account.
  3. After the authorization process is successfully completed, you’ll be directed back to Stitch.
  4. Click All Done.

Step 5: Set tables and columns to replicate

To complete the setup, you’ll need to select the tables and columns you want to replicate to your data warehouse.

Check out the Schema section to learn more about the available tables in Asana and how they replicate.

  1. In the list of tables that displays - or in the Tables to Replicate tab, if you skipped this step during setup - locate a table you want to replicate.
  2. To track a table, click the checkbox next to the table’s name. A green checkmark means the table is set to replicate.

  3. To track a column, click the checkbox next to the column’s name. A green checkmark means the column is set to replicate.

  4. Repeat this process for all the tables and columns you want to replicate.
  5. When finished, click the Finalize Your Selections button at the bottom of the screen to save your selections.

Note: If you change these settings while a replication job is still in progress, they will not be used until the next job starts.

Initial and historical replication jobs

After you finish setting up Asana, its Sync Status may show as Pending on either the Stitch Dashboard or in the Integration Details page.

For a new integration, a Pending status indicates that Stitch is in the process of scheduling the initial replication job for the integration. This may take some time to complete.

Free historical data loads

The first seven days of replication, beginning when data is first replicated, are free. Rows replicated from the new integration during this time won’t count towards your quota. Stitch offers this as a way of testing new integrations, measuring usage, and ensuring historical data volumes don’t quickly consume your quota.
