Linear is a better way to build products · Meet the new standard for modern software development. Streamline issues, sprints, and product roadmaps.


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

Step 1: Initiate a connection to Linear

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

Step 2: Log in to Linear

Log in to Linear using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Linear 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, Linear is going to ask you to grant access to Quolum.

Step 3: Provide consent to Quolum

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

Step 4: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum on Linear's website, Linear 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 Linear Workspace. 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 Quolum dashboard.
