With more than 10M users (and 95%+ of the Fortune 100), Miro is the online collaborative whiteboard platform that enables distributed teams to work effectively together, from running brainstorming sessions and workshops to planning projects, from designing new products and services to facilitating agile ceremonies.
Miro uses OAuth, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with Miro. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to Miro without getting access to passwords.
Step 1: Initiate a connection to Miro
Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's Miro admin to make a connection to your Miro organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will navigate to the Miro login page.
Step 2: Log in to Miro
Log in to Miro using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Miro 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, Miro is going to ask you to grant access to Quolum.
Step 3: Provide consent to Quolum
The next screen after login into Miro is the consent screen. On this screen, Miro confirms whether you authorize Quolum to access your organization's data.
Step 4: Back to Quolum
Once you have granted access to Quolum on Miro's website, Miro 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 Miro 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.
