Twilio Segment is a customer data platform (CDP) that helps companies harness first-party customer data. Our platform democratizes access to reliable data for all teams and offers a complete toolkit to standardize data collection, unify user records, and route customer data into any system where it’s needed. More than 20,000 companies like Intuit, FOX, Instacart, and Levi’s use Segment to make real-time decisions, accelerate growth, and deliver compelling user experiences.
Twilio Segment uses API Key based auth, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with Twilio. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to Twilio Segment without getting access to passwords.
Step 1: Initiate a connection to Readme
Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's Twilio Segment admin to make a connection to your Twilio Segment organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will navigate to the Twilio Segment login page.
Step 2: Log in to Twilio Segment
Log in to Twilio Segment using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Twilio Segment 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.
Step 3: Back to Quolum
Once you have granted access to Quolum, Twilio Segment 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 Twilio Segment 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.
