Set up collection

To set up Cloud-to-Cloud Integration Asana Source for the Asana app, follow the instructions provided. These instructions will guide you through the process of creating a source using the Asana Source category, which you will need to use when installing the app. By following these steps, you can ensure that your Asana app is properly integrated and configured to collect and analyze your Asana data.

Installing the Asana app

To install the app, do the following:

  1. Select App Catalog.
  2. In the Search Apps field, search for and then select your app.
    Optionally, you can scroll down to preview the dashboards included with the app.
  3. To install the app, click Install App.
  4. Click Next in the Setup Data section.
  5. In the Configure section of the respective app, complete the following fields.
    1. Key. Select either of these options for the data source.
      • Choose Source Category, and select a source category from the list for Default Value.
      • Choose Custom, and enter a custom metadata field. Insert its value in Default Value.
  6. Click Next. You will be redirected to the Preview & Done section.

Your app will be installed in the Installed Apps folder and dashboard panels will start to fill automatically.

Each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results will not immediately be available, updating with full graphs and charts over time.

Viewing Asana dashboards

All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard. Use these filters to drill down and examine the data to a granular level.

  • You can change the time range for a dashboard or panel by selecting a predefined interval from a drop-down list, choosing a recently used time range, or specifying custom dates and times. Learn more.
  • You can use template variables to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. For more information, see Filter with template variables.
  • Most Next-Gen apps allow you to provide the scope at the installation time and are comprised of a key (_sourceCategory by default) and a default value for this key. Based on your input, the app dashboards will be parameterized with a dashboard variable, allowing you to change the dataset queried by all panels. This eliminates the need to create multiple copies of the same dashboard with different queries.


The Asana - Overview dashboard presents a comprehensive overview of audit events related to actions taken on Asana. It includes widgets for user logins from risky locations, number of users invited, password change events, events by user authorization, user login events over time, content exports by resource, events by role change, events by team status, events by app authorization, events by access token authorization, deletion events, and geographical locations of user login. Overall, this dashboard provides quick access to pertinent information, making it a useful tool for improving event management. Also, the recent admin settings and recent access control events widgets offer a concise overview of recent events related to respective categories.
