Bloom uses the terms Organizations and Partners to refer to prospects, customers, and even Bloom itself. To clarify the difference between these terms, refer to the definitions below.


An organization is a company or entity that may have one or more consumers. This does not imply the organization is a customer of Bloom (as Bloom itself can be an organization).


A partner is an organization engaged in a relationship with Bloom, whether as a paying customer or a potential customer.

Partner and Organization IDs

Bloom assigns a unique partner_id or organization_id to both organizations and partners to identify their API requests.



This ID is different from your client_id and is not used for authorization requests.
