Kaltura’s mission is to power any video experience for any organization. Kaltura is the leading video cloud, powering the broadest range of video experiences. Kaltura’s products are used by thousands of global enterprises, media companies, service providers and educational institutions, engaging hundreds of millions of viewers at home, at work, and at school.
Kaltura uses API Key based authentication, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with Kaltura. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to Kaltura without getting access to passwords.
Step 1: Initiate a connection to Kaltura
Go to Kaltura Page. This can be done by Clicking on Apps on the left sidebar, then clicking on integrated Tab, searching for Kaltura and clicking on it. Alternatively after logging into Quolum one use this link https://app.quolum.io/portal/apps/kaltura-kaltura. After that click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite the Kaltura admin to make a connection to your Kaltura organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web-browser will ask for 5 fields Administrator Secret, Partner ID, Sub Partner ID, User Email and User Secret to connect, which can be found in your Kaltura Portal as shown in Step 2 and Step 3
Step 2: Log in to Kaltura
Log in to Kaltura using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Kaltura plan, and the sign-in mechanism used. You may have corporate SSO such as Azure AD, GSuite, or Okta along with multi-factor authentication. Once you have successfully logged-in you can find the API Key details as mentioned below in Step 3
Step 3: Finding the API Key details
Step 3.1: Click on "Settings" after login and click on "Integrations" sub tab. Here we can find the 4 required details Administrator Secret, Partner ID, Sub Partner ID and User Secret as shown below. Please enter the values shown on the right hand side for each of these fields onto Quolum Portal. Apart from this enter the admin email id.
Step 2: Back to Quolum
Once the API details are entered, the data starts flowing in. It might take upto a day or two for this to happen. 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
The Quolum server, running on Amazon AWS VPC, will be able to make API calls and retrieve feature-level utilization. Later, this data is crunched and available for visualization on the the Quolum dashboard.
