    Hi Doug, this isn't possible (unless someone here has come up with a workaround). We do something similar here, basically using a bot to create a task from other actions outside of Wrike.

    Have you tried possibly adding you as an assignee automatically, or as Custom Field Data as a reference? Can I ask what's the end goal of this bot so I fully understand what you're looking to achieve? Thanks!

    Hi Doug,

    If I understood your question correctly!

    You may need to create a user with this name (JoeBloggsBot), and use this new user's (JoeBloggsBot) token or authenticate as (JoeBloggsBot) when you use the API.

    I hope this helps
