Update 12 April 2015: Webhooks are no longer in beta - they’ve launched!
Our team has been hard at work building Webhooks, and we’re opening it up to interested developers to beta-test before we do a full launch!
Webhooks provides a way for you to tell Asana to make HTTP requests back to your server whenever data in Asana changes. You may wish to try it if your application wants to respond to “events” in Asana, like task changes or commenting.
Here are some examples of how you might use Webhooks:
- Post a comment in a chat room every time a task in a certain project is added.
- Reflect new comments in Asana into another system, like a bug tracker or CRM tool.
- Show a real-time ticker of the most recently completed tasks.
To learn more and start using the feature in beta, read our documentation.
We’d love to hear your feedback! You can tell us what you think by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re particularly interested to hear whether you find the feature easy to use and whether it meets the needs of your application.
While our implementation is currently stable, it is possible that we’ll make changes based on feedback before our public launch. So, please be aware that if you use the beta version, you may have to make some adjustments to your implementation when we launch it for real.
