Optimizely

Creating digital experiences that transform your company takes data-driven decisions, continued experimentation and constant invention. Optimizely Digital Experience Platform helps you unlock your digital potential.

Authenticating

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

Step 1: Initiate a connection to Optimizely

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

Step 2: Log in to Optimizely

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

Step 3: Provide consent to Quolum

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

Step 4: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum on Optimizely's website, Optimizely 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 Optimizely 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.
