Task API (/tasks)

The users API allows you to create, update, or query users.


The Task API lets you perform standard GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE actions. You can also access Tasks associated with Projects or Groups through their own endpoints: /projects/{project_id}/tasks and /user_groups/{user_group_id}/tasks .

See Integration Best Practices for more info.


The Task API allows you to:
