Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

Long story short, I’m trying to write my own Asana/iDoneThis integration.

I’ve got as far as passing Asana’s completed tasks to iDoneThis, and now I want to set a custom field to use to exclude these from future sweeps.

Here’s my code, but it doesn’t seem to be adding the ‘external’ data:

tasks is the array of tasks.

tasks.forEach(function (task) {
            var extStr = JSON.stringify({
                "data": 'passedToIDT'
            var data = {
              notes: task.notes ? task.notes + '\nDone...' : 'Done...',
              external: extStr
            client.tasks.update(, data)
            .then(function (resp) {

I get ‘Unhandled rejection Error: Server Error’ when running the code as above.

I also tried JSON.stringify(data) as the second argument to the update method, but that just did nothing (there was no error, but the external data was not set).

I was on Oauth, but should have thought about it more carefully and added the .catch() myself. Anyway, it told me that the ID needs to be a string. Coerced it, and now working beautifully. Thanks for all your help!

Another thought (from @praecipula) is that you may not have initialized your client with Oauth? External data is per-Oauth-app. But if you don’t use Oauth, you cannot use the feature. Either way, the error message you’re getting should be more revealing.
