Everyone ending up here because Asana Quicktask is not working anymore with the API 1.0 Api key or has a broken Asana Quicktask Workflow because the workspace ID is not working anymore: 

 

API 1.0 key deprecated

The api key is deprecated, but you can replace this easily with a personal access token: https://app.asana.com/0/developer-console Use the token as you would have used the api key. 

 

Broken workspace id

Asana changed something in their API when it comes to id's and the 'id' is deprecated. They now use gid, which is easily fixed in the workflow. Go to asana.php line 440 (in version 2.2) and change $workspace['id'] into $workspace['id']. If you use a specific project instead of a space, probably the same happens on line 466 and 469.

Thanks emb! For those not entirely clear on this, you can now find your "API Key" as needed in QuickTask for the akey command by going in Asana to My Profile Settings, then Apps, then Manage Developer

For anyone with a similar problem, getting this to work with Alfred 3 requires editing workflows.php.   Right-click on Asana QuickTask in your workflows and select "Open in Finder".  

@Jonathan   What does "tasks not showing up" mean? Were you adding tasks with QuickTask, and they weren't showing up in the Asana app?   Also, that error is occurring because the Asana API is not

Great help and insight @tmschltn . To add to the the comment above the steps to get this working with Alfred 4 are as follows. 

 

1.  From @deanishe  - Download the zipped repo, extract it, then drag the folder into your workflows directory.

 

To quickly get to your workflows directory, open Alfred Preferences, right-click on any workflow and choose Open in Finder. Then go up one level to the directory named "workflows".

2. If you have Alfred 4, Open the workflows.php folder and modify lines 41 and 42 to change Alfred-3 and Alfred 3 to just say Alfred (or whatever the path of your Alfred directory is in /Library/Application Support) :

 

$this->cache = $this->home. "/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred/Workflow Data/".$this->bundle;
        $this->data  = $this->home. "/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Workflow Data/".$this->bundle;

3. Modify the asana.php file in your text editor of choice.

Go to asana.php line 440 (in version 2.2) and change $workspace['id'] into $workspace['gid']. If you use a specific project instead of a space, probably the same happens on line 466 and 469. Change id to gid.

 

 

4. While logged in to asana, create a personal access token - label it what every you'd like "Alfred Workflow" is fine : https://app.asana.com/0/developer-console

5. set your api key in the Alfred workflow by typing akey and pasting the personal access token code that you will copy when you create it. 

 

Everything should work after that.

Thanks for the guide @Davejorg!  This worked for me with one minor change.

I did not need to change line 469 to gid.  Just the change on line 466 is needed.

Thanks so much for the guide @Davejorg and @jeverest. I followed the instructions, but it seems like it's "stuck" on a certain workspace. (I am a member of multiple workspaces in my Asana account.) 

 

What I tried:

  1. Installed workflow & made the id changes above in asana.php & workflows.php
  2. Set my access token — it works and running 'aspace', the workflow can see all the workspaces and projects across those workspaces
  3. I can save assignees using 'aperson' keyword
  4. I set target to a certain project using the 'aproject' keyword
  5. When I try to add a task while running the debug mode in Alfred, I see this response in the logs: [12:28:41.154] Asana QuickTask[Run Script] Passing output 'assignee: Not a user in Workspace: andrew.skotzko@gmail.com' to Post Notification

 

Help?

Got this working today - thank you so much, it's great!

 

One quick thing I was wondering - is it possible to add the current clipboard as the description of the new task? I tried modifying the code myself, but was woefully unable to get it working. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hello I'm trying to install, I am quite a noob 🤓

 

I am using Alfred 4, but I don't see anything regarding Alfred in Application support.

 

Also I don't understand how to input the API key into akey? Do I replace akey with the api code? do I set the api code as the title or the subtitle? Do I have to input the token name anywhere?

 

Thanks for any help

 

Charles
