Hello Thomas!

First of all thanks for your reply. So in case of wanting to determine a 
list of users of a Venue out of a SharedApp this would mean I have to 
instanciate a VenueIW wrapper in the shared application python script and 
then exchange the retrieved information with my application behind the 
SharedApplication script. Is that correct?

Best regards
