Asana Integration

The day is finally here. After months of undeterred work, we are pleased to announce to our community that QA Touch is now integrated with Asana.

Asana helps you organize complex work across teams to drive business outcomes.

QA Touch offers seamless integration with Asana, presenting the best way to keep all the bugs posted in Asana Work Management.  

We have an array of other integrations YouTrack, GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, and Trello.

Asana can be blended with QA Touch in a short period, by following the three steps below:

  • How To Generate Asana API Key.
  • Asana QA Touch Global Configuration.
  • Mapping Asana Project To QA Touch Project.

How to Generate API Key in Asana?

You can generate the personal access token (PAT) containing your security credentials for Asana. Much like an API key, generating a PAT allows you to access the Asana REST API upon successful authentication. Asana API tokens contain your security credentials.

You can generate a personal access token from the Asana developer console.
