Custom recipes

Bugsee can accommodate all these customizations with the help of custom recipes. This section provides a few examples of using custom recipes specifically with Asana. For basic introduction, refer to custom recipe documentation.

Setting tags field

Bugsee can't map it's own issues labels field to Asana tags. But you can specify appropriate tags via custom field inside custom recipes:

function create(context) {
    // ....

    return {
        // ...
        custom: {
            // This example sets tag by its ID
            tags: ["1150465793891637"]

You can find ID of the tag in URL of your tag's page:
