    I'm using Google Home and a simple browser get to the URL for Join.
    https://joinjoaomgcd.appspot.com/_ah/api/messaging/v1/sendPush?text=garageopen&deviceId=aabbcc112233
    The Join app and web interface logs show that the value in text= (of the URL) are making it to my device. Tasker is not starting the task action items. The action items do what I expect if I select them and hit play manually.

    In Tasker I'm using an event with a text filter of 'garageopen' and then a statement
    Code (Text):
    If %jointext ~ garageopen
      Autocast displays www page
      Wait 30 seconds
      Autocast displays no page
    End If
    If it matters, I did pay for Tasker and Join post installation (I saw one thread where this could have led to their issues). I soft closed all of the applications and started from scratched.
    SRC: Watched this a few times, this is where I am getting most of my configuration help - though I'm very curious as to what the =:= purpose is (ie turn=:=on). I have tried garageopen=:=open to parallel what the video showed but I have not had any success.
    .
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So If statements aren't necessary? Every single example I saw had one.
    I saw that tutorial but it's using AutoApps, I'm trying to use Join for a trigger (ideally a text string match).
    Code (Text):
    Profile: Garage Open (6)
    Event: Join Received Push [ Configuration:Text Filter: garageopen ]
    Enter: Garage Open (2)
    A1: If [ %jointext ~ garageopen ]
    A2: AutoCast [ Configuration:
    Starting Casting Screen
    Persistent Notification: true
    Cast Device: Bedroom
    Screen: Any Web Page
    Screen Notification Time Out: 3
    URL: http://user:password@foobar.com Timeout (Seconds):90 ]
    A3: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:30 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ]
    A4: AutoCast App [ Configuration:
    Starting AutoCast
    Cast Device: First Available Timeout (Seconds):0 ]
    A5: End If

    You can use the same exact logic with Join, it works the same way :) But you can also set it up with AutoApps if you want. Join sends its commands to AutoApps. Please try without the if in the task, thanks!

    Also, where did you see a tutorial with an if like that? It wasn't one of mine most probably, right?

    A1: AutoCast [ Configuration:
    Starting Casting Screen
    Persistent Notification: true
    Cast Device: Bedroom
    Screen: Any Web Page
    Screen Notification Time Out: 3
    URL: http://www.foobar.com/ Timeout (Seconds):90 ]
    A2: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:20 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ]

    Sorry about that, that happens when when the post includes a link. You wouldn't believe how much spam I get in a day.
    Can you please try adding a flash action at the start of that task and see if it shows when you send the join message? If that doesn't work, can you please try this tutorial and see if it works for you? If it does then we can try to figure out why this one doesn't. thanks!

    I will avoid links.
    I added a flash and the Google Voice/IFTTT command continued to do nothing. Long press and manual play the task I get the flash pop up on my phone, then the task does what I expect.
    On the tutorial you referenced, step 2, I can't specify any devices on the Join Send Push. On the Join website joinjoaomgcd and all that, my device (Android phone) is listed there.

    Ok, with just one device you can't send pushes to yourself in Tasker. That's fine. :) Can you please try going here then using the JOIN API to send a "garageopen=:=" test message to yourself and see if the task runs? thanks!

    Where is "here" that you want me to go to?
    I've tested the "garageopen=:=" in the Join Android app's function. I click This Device and then type the message, there is a log of Pushes. This does not perform the action.
