Sentry helps all software teams create the best software, faster. Sentry empowers developers to quickly triage and resolve issues while reducing everything-is-on-fire stress, chaos, and potential financial loss, by providing cross-stack visibility and deep context about errors. Each day, we process billions of exceptions from some of the most popular products on the internet.

Authenticating

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

Step 1: Initiate a connection to Sentry

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

Step 2: Log in to Sentry

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

Sentry Authentication

Step 3: Provide consent to Quolum

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

Step 4: Back to Quolum

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