Asana is a web-based software-as-a-service designed to improve team collaboration. It focuses on allowing users to manage projects and tasks online without the use of email. Each team can create a workspace. Workspaces contain projects, and projects contain tasks. In each task, users can add notes, comments, attachments, and tags. Users can follow projects and tasks and, when the state of a project or task changes, followers get updates about the changes in their inboxes. It improves employee productivity.

What is Anypoint Connector?

Anypoint Connectors™ allow you to easily integration Mule applications with third-party APIs using standard integration protocols. Use connectors within your application flows to send and receive data using a protocol or specific API. Connect message sources like endpoints and connectors in MuleSoft’s ecosystem, or use dynamic connectivity to API specifications.

WHISHWORKS Anypoint Connectors

WHISHWORKS builds reusable connectors using the Anypoint Connector DevKit. These connectors are pre-built generic connectors with a standardised protocol, transport layer, and database. They have the ability to connect quickly with thousands of REST and SOAP APIs. Anypoint Connectors are automatically bundled with Anypoint Studio, and there is a large library of connectors available for download from MuleSoft’s Anypoint Exchange.

At present, Asana is integrated with productivity tools like Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, Harvest, Instagantt, Jira, Zendesk, and DigiSpoke. However, with the new Asana Connector built by WHISHWORKS, Asana can connect to any Mule based application in a user- friendly manner by leveraging Asana APIs. Asana Connector has been certified by MuleSoft and is published on the MuleSoft Exchange
