Asana integration

This integration adds commit messages as comments to Asana tasks. Once enabled, commit messages are checked for Asana task URLs (for example, or task IDs starting with # (for example, #987654). Every task ID found gets the commit comment added to it.

You can also close a task with a message containing: fix #123456. You can use either of these words:

  • fix
  • fixed
  • fixes
  • fixing
  • close
  • closes
  • closed
  • closing
