Can I integrate with multiple Miro teams?

Currently, it's not possible to integrate Happeo with multiple Miro teams. This limitation arises from an API constraint, as we are required to perform OAuth for a particular team. Consequently, you will only have access to search results for Miro boards associated with the specific team you've designated. Rest assured, we have plans to enhance the search connector's capabilities in the future, enabling you to connect seamlessly with all your environments.
