Bluejeans

BlueJeans provides interoperable cloud-based video conferencing services. Easily and securely hold live online meetings, webinars, and video calls.

Authenticating

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

Step 1: Initiate a connection to BlueJeans

Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's BlueJeans admin to make a connection to your BlueJeans organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will navigate to the BlueJeans login page.

Step 3.5: Copy the App Key and App Secret and use it to connect your application right away.

Step 4: Provide consent to Quolum

The next screen after login into BlueJeans is the consent screen. On this screen, BlueJeans confirms whether you authorize Quolum to access your organization's data.

Step 5: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum on BlueJeans website, BlueJeans is going to send you back to Quolum's page in Step 1, where you started. 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 BlueJeans 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.
