Task Status API

Since 2016, new accounts are using "New, In Progress, Completed, On Hold and Cancelled" Task statuses.

Still through the API it is only possible to make use of the older "Active, Completed, Deferred and Cancelled" statuses.
I guess you could change the workflow status via a PUT request to the /workflows/ URL and query "customStatus", but for that you would need a Business account, else you get 403 errors.

So that means that there is at the moment no possibility to use the "In Progress" status via API, since using the "Active" status, puts everything back in "New".

These are default task statuses, so it is strange that they are being considered as "custom".

 

So unless I'm completely missing out on something here, could you please fix this anomaly since the default tasks are not fully usable at the moment via API?

A temporary solution where "In Progress" could be mimicked (maybe by tricking the system by setting 2 or more other parameters as well?) would be most welcome.

Thanks!

I've got the same issue. I have created a custom status to use as a flag for integrations and I can't seem to modify the 'customStatusId' parameter?

Is there a list somewhere of which parameters can be modified?

Thanks!

I got a response from Support:

One: the documentation expands when you click on the action you are interested in and I (duh) didn't click on it.

Two: The parameter is 'customStatus' without the ID

 

Sorted. Hooray!

Thank you Elaine , I was looking for a way to GET tasks by the CustomStatusID. I just tried using CustomStatus and get the error:

{
    "errorDescription": "Parameter 'customStatus' is not allowed",
    "error": "invalid_request"
}
 
I'm using postman and the official wrike api collection / environment.  The request looks like this.

Elaine  My co-worker found the solution.  The correct parameter name is CustomStatuses and the value must be contained in brackets.

so the GET should look like this:  

GET 'https://www.wrike.com/api/v4//tasks?descendants=true&status=Active&type=Planned&customStatuses=[IEAASJM7JMBEEIJM]'

Just posting here for those that may pass by.

Thanks

Hello,

 

Any news about how to get the title of the custom statuses? How can we know the Title of the status based on its Id? Or is there a way to list all statuses with their Ids from an endpoint? Like /customstatuses for example?

Thank you.

Hi Rafa Altosio Contact, welcome to the Community 👋

If you are looking for the ID and name of your custom statuses, you can retrieve with a GET request to the /workflows endpoint via API. To do that, you can refer to our documentation here.

Please let me know if that helps!

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I do have a custom Status column on my board. However, when I run GET /workflows, I get nothing as a response. Please see the screenshot below:

Do you have an idea why this is happening?

Thank you.

Hi Lisa,

Do you have an idea why my Workflow calls isn't returning any of my custom statuses? This is currently blocking my company's integration of Wrike.

Please let me know.

Best,

Hi ! I've asked our Support team to reach out to you about this, but I'm posting their reply here as well for the benefit of anyone else reading this thread:

Our Team plan that supports Space Workflows, but not Account-wide Workflows. At the moment, it is not possible to retrieve Space Workflows using Wrike’s API. This will be why you do not see any Space-level workflows in the response from your GET call. We are planning to make API support Space Workflows, however, there is no estimation for delivery that we can share with you yet. 

Apologies for any confusion. We have sent this feedback to our Product team.
