OpenAI is an AI research and deployment company. Our mission is to ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all of humanity.


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

Step 1: Initiate a connection to OpenAI

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

Step 2: Log in to OpenAI

Log in to OpenAI using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your OpenAI 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 and API Secret as mentioned below in Step 3.


OpenAI Authentication

Step 3: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum, OpenAI 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 OpenAI 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.
