Non user account API access


#1

We have a number of internal systems that create/edit tasks in Asana. Currently, we are using a user license for this (e.g. System Notification User). Is it possible to have an API Access Token which would have access to the Company Workspace without using a user license?

Hi @Benjamin_Ragan, thanks for reaching out. If you don’t want to pay for a bot user (such as your System Notification User), you could use one of your user’s Personal Access Tokens to authenticate the script. However, this means that any actions taken by this script (e.g. completing a task) will appear as if the user took that action in Asana.

If you are an Asana Enterprise customer, you do get Service Accounts, which is exactly what you’re asking for – an admin token with global scope that doesn’t count as a user license.
