What Problems Does
the 1Qloud Platform Solve?

1QBit had created an API allowing developers to directly call upon 1QBit’s computing resources to solve problems. Thus, the 1Qloud Platform was needed to manage this process, by provid- ing developers with necessary information about the API and the available algorithms, providing API license keys for projects, displaying the sta- tus and computation time of projects, managing requests for proprietary algorithms, and enabling payments.

Project Goals

This portal allows developers to:

1) Find documentation about the various algorithms and how to use them.
2) Start projects and track their status.
3) Manage their payment information.
The project also included an admin panel, which 1QBit staff could use to manage and invoice users as well as manage documentation permissions.

System Build

The 1Qloud Platform is a mobile responsive documentation and API management system.

Application Systems

dasboard sign up

Onboarding Process.

dashboard sign up transition

During sign up, the user first entered their company name, email, and password.

dasboard sign up payment

Next, the user entered their payment information. To ensure PCI compliance, we used Stripe as our payment processing solution.

dashboard sign up verify email address

For security purposes, the user had to check their email to verify their email address.

dashboard sign in

Once they clicked the verification link in their email, they were allowed to sign in to the system.

Dashboard

1qbit dashboard project flow

When a new user signed in, they were directed to start a new project, as well as to view the getting started documentation.

1qbit dashboard project titles

On the dashboard, all existing projects were displayed, and the user could create new projects.

The dashboard was also designed with a project
list view that was appropriate for mobile devices.

Project Details

A simplified project detail view was also created for mobile devices.

Documentation

Documentation default view

An attractive tile view was created for the documentation pages, and the various modules were listed in the left side navigation.

Documentation Page Interactivity

The user could choose which programming language to display the examples in.

Users could also send a sample request to the API and view the response that was returned.

Documentation Search

A documentation search feature was created that would search for matches among the documentation pages as well as related search terms. The search would not reveal pages that the user lacked permission to view.

The user was notified on the dashboard and the relevant documentation pages if there were algorithms to which they currently lacked permissions, and they were provided the ability to request access.

Requesting Access to Proprietary Algorithms

The user was notified on the dashboard and the relevant documentation pages if there were algorithms to which they currently lacked permissions, and they were provided the ability to request access.

Once 1QBit had reviewed the request and decided whether or not to grant access, the user would see notification on their dashboard.

Third Party Integrations

As is the case for many SaaS systems, a number of third party systems have been integrated with the 1Qloud Platform.

  • Contentful - “headless” content management system that serves
  • as a content repository that is accessible via an API
  • Algolia - site search
  • Stripe - payment processor
  • Google Analytics - tracking
  • Lucky Orange - tracking
