Workfront Writeback Connector

Version 3

 

Intro

Workfront (formerly called AtTask) develops web-based work management and project management software. Use Domo's Workfront Writeback Connector to write details from a Domo dataset back to a Workfront object. To successfully use this connector, your Domo dataset must contain an 'ID' column representing the ID of the Workfront object you wish to write back to. Domo will then take any additional columns that match either the Key or Label of the specified Workfront object. Please use the Metadata reports in the Workfront Connector to get details of the schema for each object, only fields will be updated. Reference Fields and Collections should be modified as a part of their own objects. Boolean must be given as a string value of "true" or "false". String array values should be passed as a comma separated list of values without quotes or brackets. To learn more about the Workfront API, visit their page (https://developers.attask.com/api-docs/).

You export the Domo data to Workfront in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Workfront Writeback connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To configure this connector, you must have the following:

  • The username and password you use to log into your Workfront account

  • The URL for your AtTask/Workfront server (Example: https://yourcompany.attask-ondemand.com)

  • You can also select the API version you wish to connect to

Configuring the Connection

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Workfront Writeback Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Workfront account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
