TRM and the unique history of Aha! are chronicled in the bestselling book Lovability.

Authenticating

Aha! uses API Key Auth, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with Aha!. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to Aha! without getting access to passwords.

Step 1: Initiate a connection to Aha!

Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's Aha! admin to make a connection to your Aha! organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will open a pop-up asking API Key and API Secret as shown in Step 2.

Step 2: Log in to Aha

Log in to Aha using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Aha plan, and the sign-in mechanism used. You may have corporate SSO such as Azure AD, GSuite, or Okta along with multi-factor authentication. Sometimes you may need to enter an API key and a token, the step by step details of which can be found at Aha help page.

Step 4: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum, the Connect button on the Connections card would now say Reconnect. Reconnect is used to reauthenticate under circumstances where the access has expired.

Under the hood

Using the OAuth protocol, Quolum now has delegated access to your Amplitude Workspace. The Quolum server, running on Amazon AWS VPC, will be able to make API calls and retrieve feature-level utilization of projects, stories, and tasks. Later, this data is crunched and available for visualization on the Quolum dashboard.
