Difference between platform API and 3rd Party API?

Hi there, just wondering how the distinction between platform API and 3rd party API is currently made? For our app we want to allow the user to specify any dynatrace server's platform api (not just the one, where the app is deployed): would this count as 3rd party?

a platform api according to our documentation is really only platform api scoped to the environment your app is deployed (meaning you can use relative urls). as soon as you want to fetch something from another DT environment you would have to use the public API with its full URL + access tokens. therefore this is considered a 3rdParty API and needs to be queried within an app function.
