Magellan Active and Smashrun for Detailed Run Analysis

by apelosi

The Magellan Active website is built upon a powerful API that interacts with your activity data. As part of our pledge to empower developers to extend the functionality of the Magellan Active website and API, we allow key partners to add activities to Magellan Active from within their applications and also allow any developer you’ve granted authorization to retrieve all of your activity data. We’d like to highlight the latest partner to take your Magellan Active activity data and literally “run with it”. Meet Smashrun.

  1. Wait — you’re storing the user’s Magellan username and password? Magellan has an API that means you don’t have to do this… what’s going on?

    The Magellan Active API does not yet support OAuth, so SmashRun does have to request username and password. This doesn’t mean they are storing it though. The API returns a user token and that’s what SmashRun stores for subsequent authentication requests. There are plans for Magellan Active to support OAuth in the near future, so at that point SmashRun will not have to request username and password either.
