# Access Data between API and Platform

Your application don't automatically have access to your user's data. If you want to see API data on the BIMData Platform, you must invite yourself on a cloud created with your app.

# How can I share data between my app and BIMData Platform?

You can invite your user in the Cloud you created with your app:

curl --request POST 'https://api.bimdata.io/cloud/YOUR_CLOUD_ID/invitation' \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN' \
  --data '{"email": "YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS", "redirect_uri": "https://platform.bimdata.io/cloud/YOUR_CLOUD_ID"}'


Check if the Platform URL is the correct one for your Platform access.

You will receive an email asking you to accept the invitation. Once accepted, you can open the Platform and see the Cloud created by the application.


When your app needs to access data created on the Platform by a User: create the Cloud with the app and invite the User as an Admin to the Cloud. Then every data in this Cloud is accessible by your application.
