How It Works

The get-one is the Task API endpoint responsible for fetching specified task details. Let’s consider how it typically works:

The get-one endpoint has a certain URL that you send your HTTP POST requests to initiate a fetching task from project file. The URL: /tasks/v4.0/tasks/get-one.

To get specified task, you provide a file and task uid to select which task you want to fetch.

Once the Task API receives your request, it starts the fetching process. It parses the project file, get requested task and converts it into readable JSON format.

After the fetching is complete, the Task API sends back an HTTP response to your request that includes a downloadable link to the JSON file.
