Zoom helps businesses and organizations bring their teams together in a frictionless environment to get more done.
Zoom uses OAuth, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with Zoom. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to Zoom without getting access to passwords.
Step 1: Initiate a connection to Zoom
Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's Zoom admin to make a connection to your Zoom organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will navigate to the Zoom login page.
Step 2: Log in to Zoom
Log in to Zoom using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your Zoom 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, Zoom is going to ask you to grant access to Quolum.
Step 3: Provide consent to Quolum
The next screen after login into Zoom is the consent screen. On this screen, Zoom confirms whether you authorize Quolum to access your organization's data.
Step 4: Back to Quolum
Once you have granted access to Quolum on Zoom's website, Zoom 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 Zoom 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.
