What must I do from a technical perspective in order to use iSHARE?

If you want to join a data space or the iSHARE Network and start sharing data, you must comply with the iSHARE Trust Framework’s technical API specifications. 

An API is an easy-to-implement and accessible communication solution that only provides access to the data that you are willing to share (and not to the underlying systems).

Once you have implemented the APIs, other participants can utilise this to request your data. After all, these participants have also implemented the same specifications as agreed in the data space. Whether these participants will actually be allowed access to your data is another matter, however. (This is dependent on argeements and policies set up or agreed upon). 

For more detailed information and API specifications per role, please refer to the ‘Technical’ chapter of the iSHARE Scheme or the Developer Portal.
